I was completely surprised by this event! VGL takes you back to the past, giving due credit to the video games and creators that shaped the gaming community to how it is today.
Who ever thought there was so much rich history and emotion behind an industry that revolves around computers?
Jumping back and forth between the historic games and the newer ones, the orchestra interprets bigger music for the older games, and also gives an opportunity to see the real work behind a video game composition.
This is fully-interactive, the show is chock full of gaming history, bringing audience participation to the stage, prizes for the real devoted gamers and special guests from the creative side of video games are introduced with fantastically random stories that I'd never imagine.
This was a great show. The Greek Theatre proved an amazing venue, hidden away in the hills; it's sort of funny seeing video games in an outdoor setting, but its refreshing, open, freeing.
Whereas typically, the music takes supporting role to the graphics, in this setting, the roles are switched. This presentation gives a chance to focus on the music without as much visual distraction.
<p>Video Games Live, an immersive concert event featuring music from the greatest video games of all time, will take place at the Greek Theatre.
