In an almost unprecedented move, the New York Museum of Modern Art has opened a permanent video game collection featuring some of the most ground breaking titles to have hit the market from Pac-Man to EVE Online. Making specific mention of aesthetics, music, story and history, the exhibit might help bridge the gap between the drastically different cultures of the younger and older generations by giving visitors a helpful insight.
New York's Museum of Modern Art is bringing in a video game collection, starting in March, with a selection of 14 iconic titles.
With video games making their way to museums around the world, MoMA provides the latest proof that they are now enjoying proper art form status. In March 2013, the art insitution will premiere a permanent video game expo in the Philip Johnson gallery.
The selection was based on various criteria including impact on gaming history, story, gameplay, soundtrack and overall esthetics.
