A brief tour through the Videogame History Museum


From our booth at E3, I could see dozens of old tube TVs and what appeared to be aging game consoles. Upon closer inspection, said pile of ancient technology turned out to be part of the Videogame History Museum. This vast collection of trinkets both popular and obscure is a labor of love for people aiming to create a true brick and mortar game museum in Silicon Valley. Undoubtedly a noble pursuit!

So in the waning moments of E3 2011, I grabbed Chris and we took a quick jog around two tables on display. There was so much more to see and play, we just couldn't get to all of it. Head to their official site and support the museum in any way you can - our medium deserves the recognition!

    No Atari Jaguar! What kind of ramshackle operation is this?

    That was some cool shit. I would love to go to a full blown game museum. I wish you got to the PC stuff thought.

    That was an awesome overview. You guys should have a FAP where you get some of the most obscure consoles/add-ons and play them.

    2 FAPs this and a pawrdcost?! This is a beautiful day!

    I have a Magnavox Odyssey in my garage.

    Blast from the past!

    Awesome video, Brett is right in saying that people who say SNES are idiots

    What is the music playing in the background during the tour of Sega systems? It sounds familiar.

    I thought this would be a boring ass shit. I was mistaken. GR can make anything informative AND entertaining. (the history of game packaging comes to mind)

    What was that little Sega handheld you passed right before you got to the Virtual Boy?

    The thing I like the most about Antista is that it is literally impossible for him to get through one segment without making a joke that some group of people would find horribly, horribly offensive. It's like clockwork. Also, watching that made me really miss my N64. I wish I could go back in time and kick myself in the dick for giving it away to someone.
  • MichaelCera - June 24, 2011 7:59 p.m.

    Kick ass. I love the consoles and tech of yesteryear.

    My NES isn't yellowing yet. Maybe just because I recently took it out of the box for the first time.
  • JohnnyApplesperm - June 24, 2011 10:05 p.m.

    You guys are damn good on camera <3 Haha now I'm proud of my non-yellowed NES, I feel special :D
  • LordZarlon - June 24, 2011 10:31 p.m.

    I loved the look on Chris's face when he made the point about oxygen yellowing the NES plastic. It was a both cute and sarcastic.
  • eon - June 25, 2011 12:26 a.m.

    Awesome. 50p!
  • NoiseAsylum - June 25, 2011 12:38 a.m.
