Co-founder, Joe Santulli lead Oliver on a tour of the 10,000 square foot museum solely devoted to videogames and videogame history, and coincidentally destroyed him on every game they played together. Oliver saw consoles and games he'd never even heard of, a few familiar friends, and took a trip back in time when he visited their authentic 80's arcade.

But it's not just about games themselves. The museum also has rare items like figurines, board games, systems that never made it to the shelves, and all other kinds of memorabilia that may remind you of times gone by.
