Vote On Which Video Games Get Entered Into the Smithsonian - February 21, 2011, 03:19 PM

Exhibitions: The Art of Video Games / American Art

Vote Here: The Art of Video Games

About the Exhibition

Video games use images, actions, and player participation to tell stories and engage their audiences. In the same way as film, animation, and performance, they can be considered a compelling and influential form of narrative art.
The Art of Video Games is one of the first exhibitions to explore the forty-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects and the creative use of new technologies. The exhibition will feature some of the most influential artists and designers during five eras of game technology, from early developers such as David Crane and Warren Robinett to contemporary designers like Kellee Santiago and David Jaffe. It also will explore the many influences on game designers, and the pervasive presence video games have in the broader popular culture, with new relationships to video art, film and television, educational practices, and professional skill training. Chris Melissinos, founder of Past Pixels and collector of video games and gaming systems, is the curator of the exhibition.
New technologies have allowed designers to create increasingly interactive and sophisticated game environments while staying grounded in traditional game types. The exhibition will feature eighty games through still images and video footage. Five games will be available for visitors to play for a few minutes, to gain some feel for the interactivity—Pac-Man, Super Mario Brothers, The Secret of Monkey Island, Myst, and World of Warcraft. In addition, the galleries will include video interviews with developers and artists, large prints of in-game screen shots, and historic game consoles. Visitors will be able to connect with the content of the show across generations, from those who remember the classics such as Pitfall! to those playing contemporary games like Flower.

Vote!

From February 14 through April 7, 2011, the public is invited to help select games to be included in the exhibition. You can vote online for eighty games from a pool of 240 proposed choices in various categories, divided by era, game type, and platform. The games on the ballot were selected by exhibition curator Chris Melissinos, who worked with the museum and an advisory group consisting of game developers, designers, industry pioneers, and journalists.

I will admit, back in 97 or so, I gave nearly 3 months of my life to FF7. I'm talking about coming home a 6pm and playing till like 3am, 4x a week.

After I beat it, I realized I would never give that kind of time to a game ever again. That was batshit insane. 2 discs. Like 100 something hours. Spending time raising Chocobos or whatever the hell those chickens were called.

I maybe gave 40 hour or so the Metal Gear Sons Of Patriots and Gran Turismo, but haven't really played many games since.

The way I was told, fitz was a man's man; the kind who parks his monster truck anywhere he wants even if that is right on top of your Camry. The kind of man who still drinks his Bud straight from the classic bottle and dares you to tell him it sucks. The kind of man who wakes up pissing rusty nails and crapping out Bradleys. The kind of man that knows how to catch a chicken bare handed, look it in the the eye and have it drop an egg in his open palm while he wrings its neck with the other hand and has the bird cleaned, sliced and served up with that egg in less than 30 minutes. The kind of man who .... well you get the picture. I was led to believe fitz was the real inspiration for the Old Spice commercials...and now this Final Fantasy crap surfaces. Lies.. all dirty stinking lies...
