World Video Game Hall of Fame
« on: March 25, 2016, 11:40:38 PM »
This afternoon I paid a visit to the World Video Game Hall of Fame and its neighboring exhibit of the history of video games. I took a few pictures to share.

The World Video Game Hall of Fame began last year, so it only has one class of inductees so far, which are Pac-Man, Pong, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, World of Warcraft, and our favorite, Doom.



The history of video games exhibit has way too much for me to show here, they have probably every system ever made, plus tons of games on display, plus they have dozens of arcade games available to play.



Oh, and human sized character statues.

No, but there's probably a chance they have a copy in their archives.

Cool display,

Does anybody know where this cover came from? I've never seen this before.

Ah, yes, the Video Game Hall of Fame. Haven't had a chance to see it yet, but I do remember visiting eGameRevolution on opening day. There is, quite literally, something for everyone there. Sweet exhibit.

There's a slim chance I'd get to go there, but I don't live that far away from New York.
