GamesMania: Video games frenzy at Glasgow Science Centre
The event will have more than 150 consoles from over four decades for fans to play.
Are you ready, player one?
Prepare to go square-eyed as a major gaming event has arrived in Glasgow, just in time for the summer holidays.
GamesMania has arrived at Glasgow Science Centre with games spanning an impressive 40 years.
More than 150 consoles, computers and arcades will be on offer for fans to play at the event, which runs until July 16.
From the classic game of Pong right up to virtual reality technology games, the interactive exhibition aims to bring together players of all ages.
"I think it is going to appeal on a lot of different levels," says Emma Woodham from the Glasgow Science Centre.
"The kids could be discovering things like Sonic for the first time and they may not have seen things like floppy disks.
"But it will also appeal to their parents because it will be going back to games like Lemmings. It will have a nostalgic feel.
"So it will hopefully be an intergenerational bonding moment."
For those who prefer gaming with a full keyboard and mouse, a LAN-party of connected PCs will be available to play an en-mass game of Halo.
Families can enjoy multiplayer games on consoles such as Nintendo 64 and GameCube, with the likes of SuperMario 64 and Pokemon on offer.
Nostalgia will also come in the form of BBC systems which were often found in schools across the country as part of the BBC Computer Literacy Project.
A room filled with Minecraft, classic arcade games including Pac-Man and Space Invaders and even top quality gaming PCs with a range of games are ready for gamers to enjoy.
In a nod to Scotland's gaming industry, a series of experts will be on hand during the 20-day festival to teach people about basic programming and the history behind both the machines and developers, with organisers hoping it will inspire the next generation of Scottish game designers.
There will be three adult-only nights during the festival featuring over 18 games such as Halo, and an Autism-friendly session on Sunday, July 15.
