The closing event, titled "Building a Computer Game," will take place on February 6 and will be hosted by Lego Star Wars creator Jonathan Smith, head of production at TT Games.

Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago has something like that. It's pretty cool,the more you progress down the hall,the further into modern gaming you get(it starts at like atari and stuff,gets to NES,then Super Nes,N64M,PS1,XBOX,PS2,Gamecube,Xbox 360,Wii,PS3,and best of all,free DDR!

Well, I still love this idea. But this list of speakers does not impress me.

It was better when I went, but that was just after opening. They didn't have a Wii or PS3 when I went, because they weren't out yet!

Ha, yeah, ok then. I went there, i was all excited and i thought it was gonna be awesome. No, not only were half the machines broken, the layout was aweful, half the information painted on the walls was wrong, they were missing some major games in gaming history. But most of all, it was just poorly run. And all te chav kids running about the place was mind blowing! Seriously, the Playstation 3 was a bad choice for an inclusion, not to mention you had to LEAVE the event if you want to play on either it or the Wii. The development/character section was at least a little better, but it was not very informative or interesting other than a pair of storyboards from Max payne and GTA3. Other than those it was just "Code! Code makes videogames, here is some code from GTA3! " *500 lines of code with no explanation* What use is that? It's not even interesting, it's just code hanging on the wall... So yeah, huge dissapointment, but at least they made an effort i suppose...
