The Video Game Revolution opens May 29 in Tampa, offering visitors both a lesson in video game history and chances to play classic games.
TAMPA, Florida – Video games have been around for decades. From PONG to Donkey Kong, from Pacman to Halo, games have provided entertainment for generations.
“The best video games are the ones with a story,” Ton Palaez said.
“I think that’s one of the fun things about this show, is that people can be able to challenge each other and just in a really fun way,” he said.
Starting Saturday at 10 a.m. and throughout the summer, visitors to MOSI can take a trip back in time to see how the first video games were created and even get their classic consoles handy. Arcade style games like Pacman and Galaga are available to play along with original Nintendo consoles. There is also a section of the exhibition where visitors can try out esports games.
“The most exciting thing about this exhibition is that it’s pure nostalgia. You remember, ‘This is the game I grew up playing’ and not only can you share this experience with your family and kids and it’s like ‘This is a game I played and it’s a game I’ve played ” and anyone can share and that’s one of the most exciting things about the video game revolution. “
In 2021, players now earn seven miniatures playing competitively in tournaments and online. The exhibition is free with regular admission to MOSI.
