Was in Berlin last week. Went to the computer games museum there (https://www.computerspielemuseum.de/) which is something that anyone who's in the area should check out. All sorts of old games, consoles, hardware etc, including:

  • Pong machine
  • Virtual Boy (it's actually a thing)
  • Some massive huge Atari joystick that works for stuff
  • Old East German arcade machine with really, really crappy games
  • E.T. for the Atari
  • One of those old early 90's virtual reality headsets that they used on early series of Gamesmaster

Aside from that, Berlin's quite cool. They have huge Lego giraffes.


Also watched some football. Everything was a draw, obviously

A long time ago I was almost the only kid with a gameboy and now I lost it to my stupid father side and he told me to never come back, to his moms house XD

What teams did you watch play, cause there's no team in berlin. Right??

jonthomson responds:

Union, then St Pauli the day after

Should have looked up the team. I support Borussia Dortmund, but I dont really pay attention to any other bundesliga team except for Bayern Munchen.

Hey cool, i just saw your frontpage post, as it is in german i had to click it instantly.

I was born an raised about 100km north from Berlin in the deepest east german backlands. And even tho i lived in Berlin for about one and a half year, i never made it to the computerspielemuseum. A mate and me planned to go there but always forgot about it.

Now after reading your post, i'm really going to do it next time i'm there! Thanks man!

Also, german football sucks since it's all just about the money and Bayern M√ľnchen is winning everything :P

When was the last time you went to an arcade? My last job was working in an arcade, just before they auctioned off all the games, but for a while, it was fantastic.
