Game over and over again

Classic video games dusted off for new exhibition

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

If you miss the thrill and retro skill of maneuvering your way through Space Invaders, or the excitement of out-smarting those pesky little Pac-Men, then the Science Museum might just be worth a visit over the coming months.

Game On is a new exhibition at the London-based museum with classic games from the 1960s onwards for visitors to play.

The 10 most influential consoles of all time will be featured with over 100 of the best loved games including Pong, Asteroids, Space Invaders and Pac-Man.

As well as the opportunity for some of the older people among us to play games from our youth, younger kids will apparently get the chance to explore the history of the gaming industry.

The exhibition will look at the cultural influence of videogames and discuss the pros and cons of games on society today. It will also track developments in hardware technology, software design and the impact of gaming on the film industry.

Game On runs from 21 October 2006 to 25 February 2007 at the Science Museum. ®
