In Pictures: The Art Of Video Games @ The Smithsonian
The history of video games is relatively brief; the first examples were created in the early 1970s. Because the medium is still so new, we have the pleasure of examining gaming with some of its most prominent highlights fresh in our own memories.
It was only a matter of time before video games started being thought of as art, and the first exhibition showcasing graphics, technology, and storytelling recently premiered at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Tom’s Hardware was on-hand to witness this extraordinary event.
