For a couple of years now I have been kicking around the idea of converting my basement into my own private arcade so I can relive my childhood whenever I feel like it.  Unfortunately, there are a couple of problems with that dream such as I need to win the lottery first and I need to find somewhere else to put all of the crap that I currently have stored in the basement.  In reality, my basement is a little small for doing anything too impressive with but I’d be happy with just a couple of pinball machines and arcade cabinets.

Well, one father and son duo are living my dream and have created an absolutely amazing arcade in their basement.

Reddit user mertzlufft posted a number of pictures of the incredible arcade he built in his basement with his dad.  From what I can tell from the pictures, the arcade is called the Vintage Vault Arcade and Gameroom.  I have to say I am impressed for several reasons.  First of all, I am very envious of somebody with a basement that is this big because square footage wise, that looks to be about equal to my entire house.  Second, I am impressed by all of the machines they have and how much work they put into this arcade that they even have a bar in it!

There was no mention of how much this cost to build or what the monthly electricity bill is but I bet both amounts are pretty large.

However, there is one criticism I have of this amazing basement arcade.  Where is the air hockey table?!  How can you have an arcade without an air hockey table?!  That just doesn’t seem right!
