Videogame Nation

Just a post to make people aware of 'Videogame Nation' an exhibition currently running at Urbis. The exhibition includes examples of games dating back to the 1980s when gaming really started to take off and also gives a view to what computer games mean now and their place in society today. It was great being able to play on games that i played on as a child but to also read about the people behind them. Computer gaming is becoming more accessible to the masses with the console moving out of the bedroom into the living room played on by the family rather than just the child.

I hated that show...It was all lazy parents playing video games and trying to fob their kids off.
