The mere sight of the classic game advertisements that cover the walls of this gallery makes you yearn for gone-by days of computer gaming.

At the entrance, a sign warns you: "Adobe Acrobat required to view ads." Another sign, dated November 2006, indicates that with the availability of full CGW issues in digital format, this gallery will not be further updated.
