E3 2012: Blast From the Past: A Look at the Videogame Museum

Post Thumb:


E3 is all about showing off the future of the gaming industry: the biggest and brightest, the bleeding edge. But sometimes it’s a good idea to take a look back and see how we’ve arrived at where we are today.

Tucked away in a corner of the L.A. Convention Center’s West Hall, away from the madness that was the Big 3’s booths, was the Videogame Museum, a collection of artifacts from the history of gaming from the extremely early days of consoles like the Vectrex all the way up to the Sega Saturn and Nintendo 64 and pretty much everything in-between. And, unlike most everything else on the show floor, there was rarely a line to get some play-time with them. It was like the bizarro E3.

While jamming to the beats by rapper Random (aka Mega Ran), I had a chance to get a look at some of the awesome stuff on display. Check it out below as well as Dread Central’s photo gallery from the floor of E3 earlier this month.
