Last month, the Montreal Science Centre, in collaboration with Ubisoft, launched a spring/summer exhibition called Game On. The exhibition is also organised and toured by Barbican and the City of London. Game On is a historical exhibition of video games, video game consoles, and the video game culture. It takes you from the very beginning of the gaming world starting from Atari and continues on to today’s modern gaming consoles like the Xbox One.
Revisit good times as you reencounter your favourite characters, like Nintendo stars Donkey Kong and Super Mario, or Sega speedster Sonic the Hedgehog. Different genres of gaming will be displayed from simulation and strategy to action and adventure.
Game On also explains the depth of the video gaming industry as they reveal the influence of music and cinema on gaming along with the whole cultural impact of video games.
Do you remember the old Nintendo building they had at Laronde or the new revamped version, L’Experience Nintendo? If you missed that, then you’re in luck. Not only will Game On be a museum-like exhibition, but they also have over 100 games right now for you to play. Get your game face on and be ready to lose in frustration to that 12-year-old Mario Kart prodigy over and over again…
