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

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.

Medium (51-100)
