Classic Game Fest in Austin

This last weekend I went to the Classic Game Fest in Austin. Lots of fun, meet several people on Atariage and made some contacts.

First, I picked up a Sega Genesis with three cartridges from Ianoid of Austin at a real good price. Thanks, Ianoid.

Now, here are some pictures I took of the event.

Sign in the parking deck. This is the first place I ever had to watch for bats when parking.

 

Some Cosplay.

No idea, but it looked really, really old.

They were selling a Ghost Busters based game (If you couldn’t guess).

All the arcade machines were free (as far as I could tell). I played a game of Tempest. A 10 year old bet me later by 1000000 points.

 

One thing I thought was really interesting was most of the people there were about the same age as the games machines they were playing on. Goes to show a good game is a good game no matter the age.
