“I love this place never mind the kids! Takes you back years with a history of working video games and some future ones too.”
“If you like video games, old or new, then this is a great place to visit. It’s a cross between a well laid out video arcade and the design museum.”
“…the NVA is a great place to visit if you’ve ever picked up a joypad, know the relevance of QWOP or experienced an R Tape Loading Error.”
“This is a true hidden gem in Nottingham.”
