National Videogame Museum photos

Went to visit Pyro and Belmonto so we all decided to go to the National Videogame Museum. Really cool place, lots of extremely rare stuff from actual rare games to development platforms and weird things like the hubcap used to make the loot drop sound in Diablo 2. Seriously.

Damn!  The last 40-some years just flashed before my eyes (literally).  I have an Atari 800 and C64 in the garage somewhere.  Had a Magnavox Pong-precursor hardwired console.  (Pong is the clone of that.)  I worked on an Apple 2 Plus.  I have every one of those old Nintendo consoles and a few of the handhelds, and I've seen most of the devices there in person (in their time).  That place is awesome.  Nice pix too.

Thanks! The combination of the lighting and most everything being behind glass made taking pictures tough since a flash was basically useless unless you wanted glare. Steady hands saved the day, I guess.

Its a really cool museum, with more stuff than I even took pictures of. Its not gigantic or anything, but a lot of things in every case to go read about.
