A cautionary tale of love, obsession and video games.
Chris Kooluris used to be like any other 30-something New Yorker. He had a successful career in PR, a great apartment in Manhattan and a loving girlfriend.
That was until he turned his tasteful, grown-up bedroom into a 1980s-style arcade.
It all started when Chris moved in with his girlfriend. They were engaged and he was planning to sell his apartment; everything was going in the right direction.
But then three things happened: Chris started to feel claustrophobic, his apartment didn’t sell and he started reading Ready Player One, a book about 1980s gaming culture.
