. . . it’s really really where I’m going to.
If you’re a gamer, then do we have the holiday for you, and this is a win-win situation, for sure. Firstly, it’s based in and centered around Brussels, Belgium, where the history looms large, the beer cannot be beaten, nor can the food. But, the city is so much more.
As you will, of course, know, Brussels is a multicultural and diverse city, which often translates into a variety of gaming interests and events. You might find gaming events, conventions, and meetups that cater to different types of gamers, from video gamers to board gamers. And beer. Did we mention beer? In 2018, there were 304 active breweries in Belgium. But this post is not about beer. It’s about gaming.
As the creator of this video – Geeky – notes “didn’t know what to expect from this museum, but it turned out to be a treasure trove of new and old machines, collector memorabilia, and games to try. The museum is arranged roughly in chronological order, with the Magnavox Odyssey and other consoles from the 70s in the beginning, followed by early home computers, video game consoles from the 80s, and then onwards into the 90s and the 2000s. If you want to play games from various decades there’s a ton of that as well.
From Pong at the beginning, to Amiga, Amstrad, NES, SNES, arcade games, as well as modern consoles, there are so many games to try. Also, make sure you give the gigantic Game and Watch a try. But there’s more than just games. You can also see exclusive collector’s editions, marketing material, Amiibos, and esoteric curiousities all throughout the museum. A Nintendo sewing machine? Yep, that’s present here. Awesome prints and paintings? Yep, you’ll find that here too. Gaming figurines of all kinds? Of course.”
