GDC Next 2014 – Video Game Museum with Retro Atari Games to Play
Here’s a quick glimpse of the Video Game Museum with a GDC Next 2014 attendee playing Missle Command on the Atari retro console. John’s been touring the VGM for several years at E3 along with Gene from VAS in Glendale, CA, so it was nice to see them here at the Game Developer’s Conference.
Commentary and video footage (#6469) recorded by me, phoenixgenesis, on my iPhone in 720P on November 4, 2014. Photo taken by me also on Nov. 4th with my Olympus DSLR camera. And yes, that’s the infamous E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial game being played that was probably one of the sole survivors from the landfill that the other Atari cartridges found themselves in due to its poor production quality.

Some of the arcade machines at the VGM are for sale. Here is the Vintage Arcade Superstore (aka, VAS) official website in case you’re interested in buying one or having your old pinball or video game arcade machine repaired: http://www.vintagearcade.net/
