Usually when you read about some guy transforming his bathroom into the Batcave or something crazy like that, you either imagine him as a perpetually single guy or as someone with an incredibly patient wife or girlfriend. The awful truth is that sometimes these ostentatious displays of enthusiasm can actually cost someone a relationship, as is the case with one Chris Kooluris.
First, the cool part: Kooluris transformed the bedroom of his apartment into a flashy retro arcade, complete with favorites like Ms Pac-Man and Tron (you can see the before-and-after pics in the gallery up top, via Complex here). The bad news is that it cost him $32,000 and his relationship with his fiancée. Worth it?
Hopefully the company of old friends like Mario, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Dig Dug will help Chris Kooluris get over the other losses he’s experienced as a result of this transformation. And even if it doesn’t, at least he never has to collect another quarter for the rest of his life.
