Pac-Man to Mario: Retro Video Games and Video Game History

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn about the rich and entertaining history of video games and why you keep going back to playing games that are 20 and 30 years old. A brief overview of the milestones in video game history will be presented: the rise of Atari in the late '70s, the Video Game Crash of 1983, the dominance of Nintendo in the '80s, and so on. Following will be a discussion about the current retro video game boom, seen in the popularity of video game collecting, "retro-style" indie games, and YouTube shows and conventions covering retro video games. Panelists include Pat Contri (author of Ultimate Nintendo: Guide to the NES Library, Pat the NES Punk), James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd, Cinemassacre), Ian Ferguson (Completely Unnecessary Podcast), Andre Meadows (Black Nerd Comedy), and Dan Eardley (Pixel Dan toy reviews).
