Here is a list of sites of those directly involved with Electronicon, as well as sites we believe you'll enjoy. Got a site, or know of a site that you think is missing here? Let us know!

Videotopia

The Traveling Museum Of The True History Of Video Games. While in Philadelphia for Electronicon (or if you don't make it to Electronicon, make a special trip out...), we urge you to check out this exhibit. It will be at the Franklin Institute Science Museum from June 20th until September 9th, 1997, and is a must-see for any true video game aficionado. Suffice it to say that Electronicon would not be where it is without Videotopia.

Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Arcade Scoreboard

The official Twin Galaxies web site, run by video game legend Walter Day, who has been keeping high scores on video games for over 15 years. High score lists galore, information on upcoming Twin Galaxies events, and info on Walter's book, Twin Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records. Twin Galaxies is sanctioning The Electronicon Home Video Game Tournament, and all high scores and winners in the tournament will receive mention in the 1998 edition of Twin Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records.

Hilton Reservations Worldwide

Hilton's online source for hotel information and reservations. For your convenience, we have also provided a direct link to Electronicon's hotel, the Philadelphia Airport Hilton.

Classic Video Games Nexus

The mother of all classic video game web sites, simply because it has a link to virtually every other one! An indispensable resource for video gamers on the Internet.

Video Game Connections

A cool video game store in Central NJ run by collector Mike Etler, that carries new and used gamestuffs from Pong to Nintendo 64. They have nifty semi-monthly collectors' meetings there as well.

Digital Press Online

The online cousin of Digital Press, the long running video game fanzine. Always a fun read to be had with Joe Santulli and the gang.

Halcyon Days

"Halcyon Days: Interviews with Classic Computer and Video Game Programmers" is finally available. Written by James Hague, this book features interviews with many of the heroes of the classic gaming era.

2600 Connection

Tim Duarte's long-running classic video gaming fanzine. Another GREAT resource.

Llamasoft

The online grazing pasture of Yak, known to some as video game programmer extraordinaire Jeff Minter (Tempest 2000, Attack Of The Mutant Camels, and a flock of others...) Stop here to get the latest gnus.

tsr's NES Archive

While most agree that the Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES) is not part of the "classic" era of video games, few would ignore it's fun value. Here's a site that is chock full of info on the NES, and captures all of the fun of it, too. Email tsr and get him to cut out of class for Electronicon, while you're there.
