Smithsonian's Art of Video Games Exhibition Voting Begins

The Art of Video Games exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum doesn’t officially open its doors until March 16, 2012, but if you want to help influence which games will be included in the exhibition, head over to the official site between now and April 7, 2011 to cast your vote.

In case you hadn’t heard, the Art of Video Games exhibition was announced back in 2009, and will basically be a celebration of all things gaming, from technological advancements in hardware to the evolution of interactive storytelling. We actually spoke with the exhibition’s curator Chris Melissinos last year, so check out our interview for more information on the project.

As for the voting process, there are five generations to choose from, starting with the 1970s and early 80s with the start of home gaming consoles through to the “bit wars” of the mid 1990s and onto the current generation. The site is a bit unstable at the moment, so be patient if it's acting up for you.

So did you all vote? If you feel like sharing your picks, I’m sure the comments section would love to hear about it.

Should the need arise, feel free to E-Mail me your tips, suggestions, and/or personal philosophies, or follow me on Twitter.
