The Art of Video Games

The Art of Video Games

When we used to play Pitfall, Donkey Kong or any other video game, clearly we never thought we were looking at art on par with the work of Picasso or Da Vinci. No, we were looking at something far more beautiful. To celebrate our love, The Smithsonian American Art Museum will be running an exhibition entitled “The Art of Video Games.” Since we feel about as comfortable in a museum as we do in the feminine hygiene aisle, we’re going to opt for picking up the accompanying book. The book features 80 video games from the Magnavox Odyssey up through our current platforms, and will give you something to look at while Skyrim boots up.
