Vintage Video Games


Nerds, rejoice! If you happen to be in New York, you'll have a chance to play old-school arcade games to your heart's content. The Museum of the Moving Image has brought back its video games exhibit called Interaction with the Screen.

You can play 14 video games in their original arcade form. One dollar gets you four tokens [just like at Chuck E. Cheese's]. The Museum's hours--10 to 3--are kind of annoying, but I'm going to try to get out there this weekend. My school field trips would've been a lot more interesting if we could play video games. Click here for a full listing on their website.

  1. I loved my Atari 2600...games were the best. Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, Frogger, etc. Today the only way kids are entertained by a video game is if they get to pretend they're blowing someone's head off.

    Say, how do you add the "You might also like" feature to the end of a blogger post? I've noticed it lately on yours and other blogs but couldn't locate how to do it.
