While the E3 show floor is primarily concerned with showing the world what's next for the videogame industry, The Videogame History Museum brought a little bit of its past to the event this week. Tucked in the corner of the show floor, a wide array of game memorabilia was on display from some of the earliest days of our hobby as well as functioning classic consoles to allow show-goers to experience the systems they might have missed.

As a person fascinated by this industry from a historical perspective, this was an amazing booth to visit. The table of old game advertisements alone had me rapt, from the "melting skull" magazine ad for the TurboGrafix-16 release of Splatterhouse to a cardboard standee promoting the never concluded Swordquest contest back in the Atari 2600 days. 

Check out the photos that I took of the booth in our gallery below to see just a small portion of all the cool stuff The Videogame History Museum had on display.
