Interesting: Games & Culture!

A interesting video I came upon: ” I got a thing to do… Roll a D6!” Merging music videos and D&D subculture together.

The other is video game art and culture being held on exhibition at the Smithsonian. We all played games and remembered the art at times. Well the Smithsonian is putting those on display.

The exhibition, which will begin on March 16, 2012, covers the full spectrum of gaming, starting in the late ’70s and ending in the present. You can check out the full list of included games via this handy pdf, but here are some of the biggest names that will be showcased:

  • Pac-Man
  • Space Invaders
  • Donkey Kong
  • Super Mario Bros. 3
  • The Legend Of Zelda
  • Star Fox
  • Doom II
  • StarCraft
  • Shenmue
  • Tomb Raider
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • BioShock
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Portal
  • Minecraft
  • Heavy Rain

So check it out if your on in Washington, DC or via their website (if we can).
