The UK’s Biggest Retro Video Gaming Fair: The Video Game Market in 40 photos
I’m a huge retro video game fan, as anyone who knows me will attest to. Under my TV you’ll find a SNES, Wii, WiiU, Gamecube, Gameboy Advance, Original DS, Gameboy Colour and as of today, an N64.
I heard about yesterday’s Video Game Market before Christmas, totally by accident either via Google or Facebook (I can’t remember which). It’s held at Doncaster Dome which is about an hour away from me in West Yorkshire. Don’t worry though, the next one is in August I think – I’m sure they’ll update their site very shortly.
Mr. MANFACE and me were up at 7am on a Saturday – which is unheard of for us – and made our way there. It was much, much bigger than expected and certainly a lot busier. It opened at 10pm but we were there and queueing by 9.30am – this meant we got in almost first and had 30mins or so before it started busying up.
There were 45+ stalls and absolutely everything you can imagine from Commodores to PS2’s and everything inbetween. But instead of me jabbering on about it, dive straight into the photos!
