Time to hit the arcade again

 It has been almost a year since the last time we visited the National Videogame Museum here in the Netherlands. It’s not really a museum in the classic sense of the word. The curators created some really nice time capsules, small bedrooms from different decades with the correct console game, TV, posters, popculture-references and great insights in the creation of videogames and its culture.

But most of all it’s a walhalla of arcade cabinets. Around 300 free to play games, from the old classics like Asteroids, Outrun and Galaga, to Japanese sitdown cabinets, a whole section dedicated to rhythm and dance games and modern games around the Pokemon and Mario franchise.

Me and my son visit the museum at least once a year during the school holidays. Today is a great day, since they just moved to a bigger space. I look forward to how it looks and will try to play a few of my favorites from last time: Guitar Hero, Star Wars Podracer and Densha De Go! This is a 3D trainsimulator, where you get to drive the realistic train routes in Japan. But also the golden oldies like Galaga, Donkey Kong and Outrun. Lets-a go!
