If you are planning to be playing video games on your big-screen TV, you should have an LCD TV. However the Plasma TV will have a brighter picture than the LCD and is about the same price for the same size. If you want a really big screen, the Projection TV is the most affordable.
Of course, if you want a 'real' home theater, you need to have a high-definition video projector. You will also need a projection screen, or a very smooth and white wall. Curtains and popcorn, optional.
