CinciClassic Classic Gaming Show
Gamers rejoice. Fairfield hosts the annual CinciClassic Classic Gaming Show Friday and Saturday, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Taking center stage are thousands of classic video games, from Pong to Asteroids to Pac-Man and yes, even Frogger
Featured retro-gaming classics at the show include infamous consoles from the '70s and '80s (Atari, Intellivision and Colecovision), all the way to Super Nintendo and SegaCD. Current-generation video game systems such as the highly anticipated Microsoft Xbox 360, are also featured.
Those who attend this free event can buy, sell and trade games with other attendees, or purchase classic games from local vendors.
Started in 1992 and based in Cincinnati, the Classic Gaming Show has only become more popular as the years have passed - much like the video games. But even if you have never heard of SegaCD or don't know what Colecovision is, the show offers a keen insight into the history of the popular gaming phenomenon.
