Brisbane Video Games: Game On! Exhibition at State Library, Southbank

Game On from GameOn Slq on Vimeo.

Game On!, a video game exhibition from the UK that has been travelling the world, is at the State Library, Southbank at the moment. It's on until February 15th. The exhibition includes displays about the history of videogaming, making and marketing videogames, sound, multiplayer games and future technology.

There's over 100 games available to play for free, including Space Invaders, Donkey Kong and Asteroids, Way of the Exploding Fist (he says, showing his age). a Halo 3 4-player LAN, Tomb Raider, The Sims, Guitar Hero 3 and Gran Turismo 4. There's even a copy of the old Infocom text-based adventure version of The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and all-time classic Final Fantasy VII (good luck finishing THAT in a day).

Tickets are $18 for adults, $12 concession/children, and under-fives are free. You can buy tickets at the door, or online at qtix, or by calling qtix on 136 246.

There's also a report here by blogger MrPigeon who went the the Game On! exhibition and loved it.
