    SimCity, part of Smithsonian "Art of Video Games" exhibit


    Dirktator

    From the Smithsonian site: 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 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.

    Among the list of games topping votes by users, SimCity and SimCity 2000.

    What did Roger Ebert say again about video games can never be Art...?

    AWESOME. Too bad I can't visit it, but maybe it will help gain acceptance of video games in the mainstream.
