Classic Game Fest

 

AAA_ClassicGameFest

This weekend The Classic Game Fest was held in Austin Texas at the wonderful Palmer Events Center.  This 2 day festival of Classic gaming brought old and new fans of gaming together to celebrate and enjoy in everything in this wonderful, and fairly new media, we like to call electronic games, video games, consoles, handhelds, arcades insert your *favorite game type here*. Not only were there a plethora of rare gems from the past, but also plenty of celebrating Cosplay and game centric music as well.

Originally created as a game competition, the Classic Game Fest has blossomed into a full fledge friendly family event. Allowing Kids under 12 in free was the brilliance of this festival. This allowed young people to experience what they might not get to ever see in video game history and parents to relive their past with their children.

Sponsoring

This event was sponsored by the fantastic GameOver Video Games stores, who have helped foster retro gaming permanently and kept alive all of our classics we love so much. Portions of the event went to the Dells Children’s Hospital.

The bands were fantastic and non stop. Plenty of seeing around the stages provided the perfect rest for people that were… well… they were just not leaving because it was so much fun! An entire arcade of top notch retro games was on free play and every machine had people on it during the entire event.
