Computer games do not merely reflect the history of the computer per se, but have also contributed in their own very particular way to development of the personal computer. The Computer Museum at Bäumlihof Grammar School Basel has focused since its inception on collecting and maintaining devices and consoles for computer games. One of its ruling principles is that it must be possible to play at least one game on each of its computers.
In the Retro Game Lounge, visitors old and young have a chance to experience once again the forgotten flair of outdated computer games. They can delve into the past by playing games on original equipment from Nintendo, Atari and Commodore, to name but a few, or by checking out copies of the oldest computer games – the so called Arcade Games – which are now available for modern PCs.
