AVC Online Announces The 2011 Video Game Summit


Chicago, IL 9:15 PM 11/2/2010 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
and raffles.
The event is open to the public and people of all ages with an interest in
video games or computers are encouraged to attend. According to the
event's organizer, Dan Iacovelli, "we plan to have many retro and modern
game consoles for play”.

The date of the show will be July 16th, 2011 from 11am to 6pm at The
Heron Point Convention Center,665 West North Avenue , Lombard,IL
(adjacent from the Fairfield Inn and Suites hotel)
Admission is $3.00 per person (children 12 and under with an Adult
are Free) and booths are $25.00 (a booth consist of three
2 x 5 tables 2 side tables and one front table) booth price includes
admission for two and a choice of ad size full page (8.5 by 10)

I was wondering if there is any interest of me doing a keynote at VGS on how to program the the 2600 using bbasic and using VbBasic?
I'm asking this because at MGC some one asked me about 2600 programing and it got me thinking that would be a cool thing to talk about at VGS?
what your thoughts?

Hey Dan,

Give us a little more information about VGS.

Is the game area set up for display only or available to try out games?

Are there any inexpensive hotels nearby (Fairfield is not what I would consider inexpensive)? With around a 10 hour drive each way, if can I make it, I would need a room Friday and Saturday.

What kind of attendance are you expecting?

Maybe you could explain your reasoning for running GORF as your Jag tournament game because I have to admit it bugs me a little. The game is not readily available so no way of practicing. Or maybe that is exactly why you did it.

Are there any inexpensive hotels nearby (Fairfield is not what I would consider inexpensive)? With around a 10 hour drive each way, if can I make it, I would need a room Friday and Saturday.
