The MGC 2010 was rather outstanding, in my own opinion. While my only issue was how it was spread out over the hotel, this is hard to avoid with the venue we are now back at (the Sheraton in Brookfield). That being my only issue, I thought Dan and Gary, and all the other folks who helped to put the MGC show together did a great job. The vendor hall was fun, and I found some good deals (and would have gotten more – if I had more money at the moment). I can’t vouch for the speakers, as I always seem to miss this while running my UC exhibit. Ben Heck was cool as usual, along with Robot Panic, VGEvo, and many others.
The amount of working pinball and arcade units was fantastic, with many of my favorites filling rooms (Wizard of Wor for one). Lots of older games, which I like, form Berzerk to Q*bert. And all on free-play! 🙂
The Museum/FGR/UC/etc. area was laid out very well. There were just so many systems to look at, with many being playable as well.
In regards to my Underdog Exhibit, it was not mobbed from 1-3 p.m. as it was in the past, but was spread out much more evenly over the weekend (people-wise). I rather liked this, as there was a steady stream of gamers, but it never got too crowded.
I’ll be posting the recap in the Underdog Chamber 2010 ‘page’ soon. When I do that, I’ll also start on the 2011 page (which of course will be just a placemarker for now).
Thanks to all that were at the show. It was great to meet people that I only see at this show each year, and to meet fun and interesting new people as well!
