‘Video Games Live’ Is Way More Than Just an Orchestra Playing Video Game Music [VIDEO]
Video Games Live is an interactive orchestra and video game performance. During the show, some lucky fans will be able to play live video games on what I'm assuming is a super-huge screen while the orchestra plays along to your moves. How cool is that?
Video Games Live will be performing in Odessa, Texas at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center Saturday, November 10th.
Yeah, it's a long ways away. And yeah, it's in Odessa. But this would be something worth travelling for in my book.
Check out the list of games people can play with the orchestra:
The live show features audience participation with special interactive segments where people from the audience come up and compete while the orchestra plays the music in perfect synchronization with the visuals on screen. Franchises currently represented include Mario™, Zelda®, Halo®, Final Fantasy®, Warcraft®, Sonic™, Metal Gear Solid®, Kingdom Hearts, Chrono Trigger™, Chrono Cross™, Myst®, Tron, Castlevania®, Medal of Honor™, God of War™, BioShock™, Civilization IV, Tomb Raider®, Harry Potter™, Beyond Good & Evil™, Advent Rising, EverQuest® II, Monkey Island, Earthworm Jim, Pac-Man, Conan, Headhunter, Splinter Cell®, Ghost Recon™, Rainbow Six®, Jade Empire, Metroid, Contra, Guitar Hero™ and a special Classic Arcade Medley featuring over 20+ games from Pong® to Donkey Kong® including such classics as Dragon's Lair, Tetris, Frogger, Ghosts 'n Goblins, Gauntlet, Space Invaders, Outrun and MANY MORE!
