This week Screen Play is devoted to the world's most significant exhibition of games and gaming culture, which opens on Thursday at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne.
The Game On exhibition has a hands-on focus, featuring 125 playable games which let visitors play their way through the entire 40-year history of interactive entertainment.
