Having said that, the video game industry has certainly come a long way from its humble beginnings, and it seems that the National Videogame Arcade has been instituted to help people appreciate games of the past, and hopefully, this will be able to act as an inspiration for games developers of the future.

The National Videogame Arcade can be found at Nottingham, where the whole room, tiny as it is, is committed to the likes of Donkey Kong in the form of an original arcade cabinet, not to mention a fair number of references to the eternal rivals, Mario and Sonic, as well as a segment that is chock full of video game memorabilia (what else?).

There are also examples of positively ancient consoles that date all the way back to the 1970s, which should be able to invoke sweet memories from those who started off with video games extremely young, and are seeing their children enjoying the same hobby today. Do you think the National Videogame Arcade will be able to spur new growth in video game development?
