The Art of Video Games Exhibition Winners Are…?

By Kyle Durant

May 3, 2011

Remember back in February when you, the gamer, could vote on what video games would make it in The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “The Art of Video Games” exhibition? Well your votes have been tallied and the winners will be announced to the public very soon. However, for select gamers that participated in the voting…you’ll be invited to a private webcast with the exhibition’s curator, Chris Melissinos, and coordinator, Georgina Goodlander, where they’ll discuss the winning, privileged games before the public is addressed. If you are one of the lucky, selected gamers to participate in this webcast you’ll receive an email telling you so and giving you instructions on when and where this private webcast is. For the unfortunate gamers that don’t receive an email, the private webcast will take place on May 5, 2011 at 1 p.m. (EDT) at From there you simply login to the (labeled) webcast tab with a password. Sadly, you’ll have to guess the password yourself gamers who didn’t get an email. If you can’t guess the password you won’t have to wait long though; as the winners will make their way to the public on the same day at 4 p.m. (EDT).

While we wait for the announcement of the winners, what games did you vote for readers?

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
