Yeah, there's still some plastic containers and it doesn't look perfect. But, it adds some height to the area, gives a spot for "currently playing games" (and there are a lot...), and camouflages some of the crazily-placed outlets behind the shelf that the TV uses.
$25 well spent, I say. I'm loving the game room part of the house- it's so darn cozy! I love that it's full of fun, meaningful, and interesting stuff.
