Appears to be art museum existed in video game heaven, it would probably look similar to "The ability of Video gaming" exhibit for the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.

Twenty game consoles and most 80 games star in the multimedia exhibit that "focuses on the interplay of graphics, technology, and storytelling" in video games. Spanning consoles on the retro Atari towards modern psp cases, many great video game titles like Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros. 3, Metal Gear Solid, and Bioshock made the cut.

The exhibit, which opened last month and runs until September 30, features terminals showing videos and images from the last 40 a lot of games. Visitors can take a look at interviews with industry pioneers, or peep at videos showing the evolution of avatars and the jumping, running, climbing, and flying game mechanics over the last several decades.

More than 119,000 people took part in a vote online recently to whittle a list of 240 game titles to 80 games with the exhibit. Each gaming system features four games, cracked into cheap xbox 360 controllersaction, target, adventure, and tactics categories.
