The lights are on
Every year the Classic Gaming Expo sets up shop in Las Vegas. The conference just closed its doors for another year, and its exhibitors are busy packing up their wares, but you can check out some of the expo's highlights in our media gallery.
No fancy greeting at the CGE
A row of classic arcade games line the back wall of the hall. They were all free to play
There are a lot of games for sale at CGE. Here's one about history. It's for adults, probably because children find history boring
The marketing team behind this game may not have know what game they were trying to sell
Artists like 8-bit Weapon kept jammin' throughout the show
Part of the CGE Auction held Saturday night. Some of the proceeds went towards the Video Game History Museum
A view of the expo hall. It's not as glitzy as E3 or sprawling at GamesCom, but it's heaven for a retro gaming fan
Our friend Wreck-It Ralph made it to the party. Fans lined up to play his game. The rest of the arcade games resent him and call him a poser
A shot of the Video Game History Museum's set-up the morning before fans got a chance to wander around. All of the following shots are taken from their collection
Pong never really caught on with animals for some reason
Board games based on arcade classics

"...I'd probably give it a 5.75 out of 10." LOL
I haven't seen a Game Gear in a long while now.... Good times from my childhood
Kool-Aid Man Video Game? OH YEAH!
Man, Night Driver...... I loved that game. I remember cleaning the floor board of my dad's car to find quarters to play that game. lol.
Where was all the Intellvision stuff?
A game system by tobacco, eh? Yeah, they're innocent all right...
Anyway, keep the stuff there and I'll live there.
Great pictures! Cool games!
Although the entire thing has this intense, pervasive sense of genuine sadness...
I want to play the cool aid man game
