I breathlessly and giddily read the description of Video Games Live: A concert event of classic video game themes performed by a symphonic orchestra and choir?!
Um, amazing! I'm getting my tickets for the San Francisco show next week, which this year promises to feature the Skywalker Symphony Orchesta and Choir, and the themes from Halo 3, World of Warcraft, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and Final Fantasy, among others.
I couldn't be more excited for an event that highlights and enhances the art and sensory experience of video games. I feel cultured, and not to mention, totally validated for all those sunny days I spent inside when my mom kept telling me and my sisters to get out of the house.
Video Games Live is on tour the rest of this year, so check and see when they'll come to your city!
