Whether your “Game Room” is a room all of its own, or simply a time slot in your family room, there are many ways to bring sanity and civility back to that space. It all starts with a game center, which works to keep games and equipment neat and tidy. Video game organizers make great gifts for kids and teens (while benefiting the grown-ups in the house at the same time).
Read on for our best picks to help you take back your family room!
If you are lucky enough to have a space just for gaming, you will need a place to put the TV (or monitor) as well! Choose from a wall mounted TV contraption or an all in one Centipede Game Storage and TV Stand like this – perfect for the corner of the basement or the kids room.
