Classic Game Fest is an annual retro gaming convention celebrating the world of classic video games. Classic Game Fest 2017 was held July 29 – 30 at the Palmer Events Center in Austin, Texas that featured a variety of retro game tournaments, concerts, speakers, costume contests and a lot of nostalgia if you’re over the age of 25. Walking down the aisles of vendors was a gamer’s dream with vintage finds such as Super Mario Bros. for the Super Nintendo console and more.
There were talented artists ranging from the coolest geek coffee table you’ll ever need and graphic prints. In attendance were video game legends Walter Day and Billy Mitchell and author of “Ready Player One” Ernie Cline and many more!
