Game Masters (Edinburgh)

On Tuesday the 9th of December we all went for an adventure to see games past ‘n’ present at the Game Masters exhibition in the National Museum of Scotland.

 

Covering a range of games from the last 30-40 years over different systems and platforms, it really did have a little something for everyone.  Whether you are in dance corner strutting your stuff, reminiscing over games from more nostalgic times or having a jam on Guitar Hero, It is quite easy to find something for everyone.

 

During my time there I just had to delve into the games that I played as a young lad. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was one of the 1st, Although the original Sonic was right next to it, I just had to play the slightly better of the 2 (My own personal opinion).

 

Also being of a P.C. Elitist these days I just had to get stuck right in to games such as Populous, Sim City 2000, Spore and Black and White, you would think that I have a bit of a god complex (I assure you that I’m a good citizen, Really). Then I look at my games I own in Origin and Steam then I realise I do seem like a bit of a megalomaniac.

DMA Design, from Dundee from Grand Theft Auto fame were also there with some rare artwork and signed memorabilia, there was also a playable copy of Lemmings which took me back to my old Commodore Amiga days.

I enjoyed seeing these games and systems from the past. Shenmue on the Dreamcast was also there which is a highly underrated game but only because nobody bought the Dreamcast.  I also got stuck in with the new by also playing Angry Birds on a 50 inch touchscreen. It took a bit of convincing me to give up attacking those piggies.
