Best "gamers" day ever!
I went to an exhibition at one of those cool alternative museums the other week. The feature exhibit was "History of Video Gaming"
It cost £3 to get in, and to be honest I would've been happy to pay £20. They had every machine from the very start of Gaming, right up to high end PC's and Xbox 360's etc. I eventually got to play on a Dragon 32 and a Neo Geo (remember those games used to cost about £75 each)
They had original artwork from the Dizzy storyboard, and a bustop where you could sit and play on an Atari Lynx, PSP or Gameboy or Gamegear (with TV tuner

As well as all this they had a mini cinema playing re-runs of Gamesmaster, and a media room where you could put headphones on and listen to a selection of Journolists arguing about the impact of gaming and does it influence real life violence etc.
I was amazed at how hard Ghosts and Goblins was compared to current games, and forgot how good Micro Machines on the NES was!!
I played Elite, Manic Miner, Sensible Soccer, Monkey Island, Flashback, Pitfighter, Donkey Kong 64, Pong, and even Street Fighter 1.
What a day, and what memories it brought back to me.
Oh yeah, and Little Big Planet is rubbish for the record.

Monkey Island is a bad boy game.
I need a good copy, can anyone get me a link to one?
