Classic cuts from Zelda, Mario and Final Fantasy!
Montreal Is Hosting A "90s Video Game" Concert

I may not be a huge video gamer, but we've all played them - or at the very least know some big "gamers" in our lives.

Montreal has a massive video game community, thanks in part to the plenty of gaming companies who've set up shop in our backyard - I'm looking at you, Ubisoft. 

We get treated to gaming festivals and conventions, bar events with retro video games, and musical concerts spread throughout the year.
