A room full of vintage video games is probably cultural nostalgia in its best form, because unlike a washed up rock band charging $300 a ticket or a mullet flowing over a windbreaker, a lot of the older machines still have the same impact, despite other generations of systems trying to brush them under the rug. This weekend, the Louisville Arcade Expo will have pinball machines, arcade games, consoles and classic computers, which you can play for free after the price of admission, along with speakers, tournaments and panels.
