I went to the Art of Video Games exhibit at the Smithsonian today. A few pics:

All in all, it was basically a very well-put-together survey, with nothing really too provocative or illuminating to people really immersed in it all. But I would guess that for many of the adults there who were mostly reminiscing about the Commodore 64 (based on what I overheard), some of the discussion in the video loops on narrative and consequence was probably quite novel.

Definitely a narratologically tilted set of videos btw. :)

Kudos to Chris Melissinos (who called me when he saw me tweeting from the exhibit!) and everyone else in putting it together!

I was amused by all the kids walking around playing games on their DSes in the midst of the exhibit.
