Remember how much fun you used to have
playing Atari, Nintendo and all kinds of games on your computer? Well,
you will have the rare opportunity to play these great games again at
the Video Game Summit, Chicago \'s premier video game trade show. In
fact, dealers in retro games will be on hand offering games,
controllers,systems and memorabilia and will be prepared to buy or trade
for the games you have held onto since you were a kid. Who knows, you
might just have an Atari cartridge worth $1000 or more collecting dust
in your attic.
\"Retrogaming,\" the playing and collecting of classic video and computer
games, is more popular than ever.
In fact, a dedicated group of programmers still issues new games for
game systems,such as the Atari 2600, last seen in retail stores over
fifteen years ago. The Video Game Summit, now in its eighth year,
brings together classic and modern generation gamers from all over the
country to swap stories, games and to compete in sanctioned tournaments
