Retro is King at MOSI Manchester

Posted by Sean Mactaggart on

The resurgence of retro gaming culture is clear to see but it was never more evident than the recent "Power Up" event at the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) in Manchester this August.
With banks and banks of gaming prowess from the last 40 years; gamers of all ages and walks of life descended to partake in their favourite activities - exciting games, rekindled youth, family fun and 'beat the a***' off an opponent you never met.
With a full range of gaming experiences on offer; from Dell PC's with desktop classics through to original Sonic, Mario on multiple Nintendo platforms, Halo, racing games of every variety, puzzles and more; this was something that the young and old could experience in the same measure.
The room was full with a mix of young gamers who's first experience of these platforms came that day and was new and special, through to the old occasional gamers (like our web support - Baz) who just got excited when he saw the consoles and games he used to own, to the hard-core gamers who live for this sort of event.
There were some hard gamers exercising gaming thumbs; but they were eclipsed by what was a huge number of newbies and regress lovers (25 - 50) remembering the days of gaming. So the room was just full of excitement and experiences: Old and new!
So with retro gaming on the rise, if you are wanting your own retro revival; you need look no further than Manchester and the Gaming Outlet.
