Video Games Live

Just got back from Video Games Live, which is a concert in which an orchestra plays music from, you guessed right, video games. Pretty cool event, and I am thoroughly satisfied. It started pretty interestingly with a collage of songs made from the sounds of Pong to some of the cool cames of the 80s and 90s, in kind of a crescendo of technological evolution. Then we went through games that varied from Frogger to Halo, Zelda to Final Fantasy, Sonic and Mario. They even had some mini-challenges involving old games like Space Invaders (to the tune of the orchestra) and Frogger (again, people playing the game to the sound of the orchestra). This got me thinking I'm somewhat old, because the 17 year-old kid who was summoned from the audience to play Frogger did not even know of this game... Posted by Picasa
