    Chicago, IL 9:15 PM 12/19/2011 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

    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 ninth 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 14th, 2012 from 11am to 6pm at The
    Heron Point Convention Center,665 West North Avenue , Lombard,IL
