Divisive video game personality Tommy Tallarico has put his house up for sale for a cool $2,999,000, as spotted by Brandon Sheffield.

Tallarico's career spans decades; he started out in the Q&A department at Virgin Interactive in the early '90s before shifting into composing soundtracks, working on titles such as Global Gladiators, The Terminator, Earthworm Jim 2 and Disney's Aladdin. He co-hosted the TV shows Electric Playground and Reviews on the Run, and, in 2002, created Video Games Live.

However, in recent years, Tallarico has been dogged by controversy. He was the leading figure behind the revival of Intellivision and was CEO of the resurrected company until 2022, when he was replaced by Phil Adam following issues with the release of the terminally-delayed Amico console.

Tallarico was also subject to a particularly damning video by the YouTuber Hbomberguy, who exposed the many 'tall tales' Tallarico had trotted out over the years.

Tallarico has famously shown his house off in the past, including this segment on HGTV's Offbeat America:

Tallarico purchased the home for $605,000 back in 1995. The description for the house is one constant stream of "estate agent-speak", so we've reproduced it in full here, but have broken it up into paragraphs to make it slightly easier to parse:
