Day 24: Computer Game Museum (Xander)

We went to the Computer Game Museum today! It was very fun. They had history of video games and lots of classic arcade games like Frogger, Pac-Man, and Centipede. They also had a small area for classic console games like Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog. The small area had a bunch of "half-rooms" that looked like the attic of an old house where somebody would play video games. They also had text-based games like Zork.

The Portland Retro Gaming-Con had a lot more playable games and was three times bigger, but The Computer Game Museum was still big. The Portland Retro Graming-Con had more playable games, and The Computer Game Museum had more history.
