Show and Tell at the Playground - 'Tales from the (Video Game) Archive'

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry presents "Tales from the (Video Game) Archive."

Ken McAllister from the University of Arizona and Judd Ruggill from Arizona State University, co-curators of the Learning Games Initiative Research Archive – one of the largest video game collections in the world – will uncrate and highlight a few of the Archive's more unusual artifacts. From arcade machines sponsored by the CIA to video game sex toys to a game controller with nearly 50 buttons, Ruggill and McAllister will traverse the perverse of gaming's half-century history, putting some of it in context and leaving the rest for garbologists to sort out.
