    Just a minor update from an email I received:

    As you know, The Art of Video Games exhibition (opening March 16, 2012) will highlight images and footage from the 80 games that won the public vote in April, as well as five games that will be available for visitors to play for a few minutes.

    The exhibition also will include sketches and concept art from a small selection of games. We don't want to give too much away before the show opens, but here is a sneak peek at three of the artworks that will be featured:
    Edit: The concept art pics didn't come out correctly. They were from a Sonic game, a Metal Gear Solid game and another game. I'll try to link them another way.

    Bump, because I really need some closure to this argument. I think that Video Games have actually devolved from art into littler more than one toe of merchandizing for mass market products. I no more consider modern games art than I do a plush toy from a popular movie that recently released.

    Does anybody want to put on the fisticuffs and prove me wrong? It could be fun, it could be real, but it probably won't be real fun.
