Did you know that the CVGA has all 3 versions of Super Smash Bros., as well as the Japanese version of Smash 64? In fact, the series has become so popular in the archive that we've held multiple Smash tournaments, and have amended our rules to relegate Smash to Fridays, when people can come in and unwind while leaving the rest of the week open to other possibilities.
Authored by our long-time student worker, Doug Carmichael: Shooting games comprise one of the most played genres in the Archive. Barely a day goes by without patrons requesting to play shooters like Call of Duty or Halo: Reach. Shooting games have a rich and varied history, first coming into popularity in the early 90s. The Archive is proud to showcase a wide variety of shooting games from all points in the genre’s history.
Authored by our student worker, Grace Allbaugh: Wednesday is highlighting Retro Games, or games from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s. The CVGA has a bunch of retro consoles to choose from, including the original Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo, the Sega Genesis, Atari and even an upright Arcade Legends game that has over a hundred arcade games. The CVGA has an assortment of awesome games for each of these systems.
Did you know that the CVGA has more than just video games? When we moved to our current location in January 2011, we added a small section of board and card games, as well as a couple of tables on which to play them. We now have 120 board and card games in the CVGA. Some of the most popular games are Dominion, Settlers of Catan, and 7 Wonders.
