Black Mesa Home Cinema

3rd February 2008

Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

I just found this interesting article called 10 stunning ultra-geeky home cinemas and of course my mind suddenly jumped to Black Mesa. I would definitely build a Black Mesa themed home cinema if I had the cash and space.

In fact since I love concrete and industrial design my dream house might look very similar to Black Mesa anyway. I can just imagine a concrete room with a fireplace and a Chesterfield Chair with some Dutch masters on the wall!

If you had the cash and space, what themed home cinema would you like?

    The Star Trek bridges had already come to my mind before I clicked the link and saw there were a few. I just feel the ship theme from the last ST films has a sleek modern look while at the same time looking comfortable instead of the usual sci-fi cold and sterile environment.

    Ditto @ Kasperg’s post. Deep Space 9 Ops or Defiant bridge, please!

    I still like the Black Mesa Home Cinema idea, though. One game-based cinema I’d really like, though, is something Team Fortress 2 based.

    Even better, I’ll buy a old barn or warehouse, covert it into an adequete, contemporary living space and have the basement as the home theatre, whilst using the mastermind/evil genius mentality of TF2’s maps for the architecture and props!

    If I had the cash to build my own themed home theater like the one in the little screenshot at the top of this page with rows of chairs…

    I’d donate that superfluous cash to NASA. we need to get the hell off this planet.
