The National Videogame Museum leveled up Saturday with its grand opening in Frisco. The museum features interactive re-creations of a 1980s bedroom and living room, an arcade, a walkthrough history of the industry, thousands of video game artifacts, and more. As much a love letter to video games as it is a time machine for nostalgic gamers, the museum should attract old-timers who remember firing up Pong on an Atari console as well as newbs whose first video game came with three-dimensional graphics.
