Brace yourself for a nostalgia download of epic proportions, as Art You Grew Up With returns you to the days of button-mashing, joystick-thrashing glory with a set of fantastic images celebrating the Golden Age of Video Games.
Standing in Patsy's Ice Cream Parlour in Edgware, defending Earth from the Space Invaders. Devoting our spare time to developing our Galaga skills. Investing our pocket money, 10p at a time, in Defender. Enjoying our first taste of R.S.I. with love from Asteroids…
We developed Pac Man elbow, defeated the MCP in Tron, and who among us could ever forget nimbly dodging the traffic in Frogger, teaching us the laws of the road long before we were allowed to hop across it for real? On our Game and Watch and later Atari, we must have jumped a million barrels playing Donkey Kong for days at a time, our parents unable to tear our hands from those precious controllers.
Those were the days!
