The Video Game History Museum comes to E3. This exhibit was established to preserve and protect the valuable history of the video game industry. The museum was brought to us by the same people behind the Classic Gaming Expo. This interactive exhibit brings 25 years of gaming history to life. Gamers could play many of the classic consoles on display. There were also a number of arcade machines on hand, a full arcade worth of games, and they were all set to free play. And to top things off there was live entertainment provided by a number of different acts, including our personal favorite, The Descendants of Erdrick. What a great show!

The goal of the organizers is to one day build a permanent video game history museum somewhere in the Silicon Valley. We urge you to visit their site and support this important cause. The preservation of this artform is vital for protecting the future of the video game industry.
