What should I do for a sound system?

Get home theater system with like 4-5 hdmi inputs, just buy hmdi switch with surround sound, or hdmi switch with sound bar.

Live in apartment. Couch wall to tv wall is like 11-12 ft. I'm like 8-9 ftish away from tv. Apartment living room is very wide, but tv seating part is like 12 ft wide.

Looking to spend $200-$400.

Wut do? Product Recommendations?

There are some nice entry level systems made by Yamaha, Onkyo, and Denon that might suit your needs for apartment life. I would recommend a receiver/speakers only system and not one that is integrated. In other words, one that doesn't have a built-in blu-ray player.

Is it possible to play video games on it and music at the same time?

Two different sources at the same time? Probably not but I don't know for sure.

With the Denon e300 you can do that.

A "Video Select" function, accessed via the OPTION button on the remote, allows you to listen to a USB/Tuner/Network audio source while watching a separate video source (including HDMI inputs!)
Then buy two speakers. You'll be much happier with a good receiver and two speakers than some limited flexibility home theater in the box or a sound bar.

Add more speakers when you get more money or move to a new place.

You could also buy two pairs of Pioneer bookshelf speakers for $87/pr so then you'd already have fronts and surrounds. Would just need a center.

Add the center for $67

Hi TheJasonSensation, depend on your music source but its possible on the Onkyo HT-S3700 for tuner.
