Game On 2.0 Lands at the Ontario Science Centre
Coming across the pond from London, England is Game On 2.0, an interactive exhibition featuring the history of video games. Starting tomorrow, it will run at the Ontario Science Centre here in Toronto until Sept. 2.
The exhibit contains over 150 playable games from across 60 years of amusement gaming history. Along with featuring a section of early video game standard-bearers such as PONG and Space Invaders, Game On also studies important game and system entries by genre, as well as taking a look at the creative process and marketing side of gaming. A look into the possible future of video games rounds out the exhibit.
This will be the first appearance of this exhibit in Canada, and looks to be a can't-miss proposition for aficionados of video game history, as well as for gamers in general. Look for a more detailed review of the show from TDE in the coming days.
