Pacman and other videogames at MoMA

14 gaming titles, from 1980 to 2009, have already been chosen as exhibits in the Museum of Modern Art of the american metropolis. It’s the following ones:

Pac-Man (1980)
Tetris (1984)
Another World (1991)
Myst (1993)
SimCity 2000 (1994)
vib-ribbon (1999)

MoMA mentions through an announcement that videogames are naturally a form of art. Those selected are exceptional examples of interactive design, a form of design that the museum has been researching for the last few years, anyway.

In fact, in a short time from now, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, is expected to include more games in this collection, so they can have a total of 40 titles.
