Video games and comic books come alive
More than a thousand people attended GAAM, a games, art and music exhibit at The Museum July 13. People were dressed as comic book and video game characters ranging from favorites like Spider-Man and Pokemon’s Team Rocket to characters only diehard gamers would know like Tingle from "The Legend of Zelda" and the demon-fighting heroine from "Bayonetta." The event featured food, music, beer, a costume contest and a gaming room with more than 20 TVs. Props and games were for sale at multiple booths. One seller even had games from the NES, a video game console that was released in the U.S. in 1985.
