One of you must things to do when you’re
in Riga…. Is to visit the museum for… “Enjoy the game!” This is a museum dedicated to video games and arcade machines…. Video games across the ages…. Starting all the way back…. What we have here…. The Atari…. Any machine can play games with you…. But as a real computer I can also help with education….. Give people the power to be successful….. Because I’m the Atari ST……
A real thing not a plaything…. Commodores… I am keeping up with the Commodore….. Because the Commodore is keeping up with you! In a world of fun and fantasy! ZX Spectrum…. Right, Pay Attention Bond….. This is the
Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2….. It’s a fully operational computer with 128 K
memory….. But it comes with three James Bond games and a light gun that fires
armour-piercing shells…… Now that’s your assignment….. No! No! Don’t sit in that chair!
Sorry Bond! Haven’t perfected that yet….. The Sinclair ZX Spectrum +2… Even the Amstrad’s…. It must be noted though…. They’re missing….. They’re missing a good collection of Amigas Look at some of this stuff! Simply amazing! This is flashing me back to my childhood! Flashing me back to the fact that when I
used to play video games I had to load them on cassettes…. I had to put discs in the disc drive… I had to slam….. slam my fingers in the….. The Spectrums in the
Amstrad’s…. And Ataris… And the amount of time spent on the Atari 520! Thank you Nick! And umm….. Yeah….We’re missing The Amiga’s though But there’s some amazing stuff there….. Of course “Alien Storm” doesn’t have horrible little graphics…. Just horrible big ones…. Check out this…. The Atari 2600….. The Fun is Back…. Oh yes Sir-ee! It’s the Twenty Six Hundred from Atari! It’s the video system with classic galore…. From Space invaders too cars that roar…. a real hip joystick controls the screen….. Solaris and Pong, Midnight Magics and Me…..

miracle world….. Knock out games like “Rocky”! Gangster town! Shift into more excitement with the arcade hit… OUTRUN! Only on the sega system! N.E.S that came out in 1985…..
Now comes the ultimate challenge from Nintendo….. The challenge of stopping World War 3 and becoming Top Gun! Nintendo the world’s number one game system The original FAMICOM….. this was uh….. this was released I think….. Short release in Sweden….. But
it was basically restricted to Japan…. and a little bit of Russia and Sweden….. And….Atair 7800….. Amazing….. and then here we come the Super Nintendo…. Everyone loves this!

Total Geekness here! Nintendo scope! Final Fantasy Series…… Mega Drive….. New Streets of Rage…. You control 40
incredible moves….. Gotta get Genesis…… Like nothing ever before!! Genesis is so much more!!!! Sega Genesis!!! Inferior to the SNES but I know the Sega Purists would disagree with me…… Obviously “Ryu” and “Ken”……. This is some amazing stuff…… N64! Remember the days when all your friends would come around and you play Goldeneye?!? Introducing Goldeneye 007……
you know how to use one of these? Shot by Shot by Shot….. Load a Rumble Pack and see how it feels when 007 meets Nintendo 64……. 4 Player Goldeneye…. There’s Goldeneye…. Mariokart…. Amazing! Sega Saturn……Introducing…. Sega Saturn….. Sega saturn…… Are they missing the Neo Geo? Wasted money on this thing…. Atari Jaguar… Terrible Console!!!! But I had one….. Let’s review the numbers….. Sega Genesis is 16 bits 3DO is 32 bits the Atari Jaguar is 64 bits…… Which is more advanced??? Clifford? Huh! 64 bits… 3d graphics real-world animation and lightning speed you can only get with Jaguar….. Which is more Advanced??? Clifford? Jaguar! Jaguar! Jaguar! Then obviously… The original Playstation….. Playstation 2… Where is the Playstation 3? Sega Dreamcast…. Also wasted money on this…… we all play games why don’t we play
together…. Dreamcast up to six billion players… it’s clearly…… A place you can…. Could spend a bit of time…… This place cost three euros to get in……. I like it a lot! You can play all the video games…. Play any of these games….. And…. Hopefully, enjoy yourself….. 3 Euros! Money well spent! A little bit of history here! The terrorists have the prisoners….. You’re going in and hitting hard…. Operation Wolf! You’ve played it in the arcade…. Now play it on your Nintendo Entertainment System…… Make your way past armored cars….

conquered every Mario game! You think you’ve mastered all there is to know
about Mario! Well, you better think AGAIN! New Super Mario World made possible by
the power of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System….. You’ve never faced the challenge of so many enemies and so many obstacles so many levels you never
needed help from a dinosaur before….. Super Mario World you get it only with a Super
NES….. It’s part of the growing line of a games for the next generation from
Nintendo…. You’ve gotta play it! You’ve got a have it! You’ve got a reputation! Now

  1. There is a computer museum in Cambridge that apparently also has vintage computer games. Have you been there and if you have was it good?
