The Smithsonian Art Museum in D.C. is asking for help selecting eighty video games to exhibit in their upcoming show The Art of Video Games. “The exhibition will explore the 40-year evolution of video games as an artistic medium, with a focus on striking visual effects, the creative use of new technologies, and the most influential artists and designers.” The show runs from March 18 – September 30, so you’ll have plenty of time to check it out.
The games are organized by the eras shown above. Vote for your favorites here!
