Remember how much fun you used to haveplaying Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer? Well,you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again atthe Video Game Summit, Chicago 's premier video game trade show. Infact, dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games,controllers,systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade for the games you have held onto since you were a kid. Who knows, you might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust in your attic.
"Retrogaming," the playing and collecting of classic video and computer games, is more popular than ever.
In fact, a dedicated group of programmers still issues new games for
game systems,such as the Atari 2600, last seen in retail stores over
fifteen years ago. The Video Game Summit, now in its ninth year,
brings together classic and modern generation gamers from all over the country to swap stories, games and to compete in sanctioned tournaments and raffles.
The date of the show will be July 14th, 2012 from 11am to 6pm at The
Heron Point Convention Center,665 West North Avenue , Lombard,IL (adjacent from the Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel)
The event is open to the public and people of all ages with an interest in video games or computers are encouraged to attend. According to the event's organizer, Dan Iacovelli, "we plan to have many retro and modern game consoles for play”.
