Vote for Fallout and other games for Smithsonian Art Museum exhibition

Ausir February 14, 2011 User blog:Ausir

The Smithsonian American Art Museum invites the public to vote on which examples of video game art out of the 240 nominees should be displayed at their upcoming "Art of Video Games" exhibit.

A voting site has been set up, with a rather questionable division into eras, platforms and genres. You can vote for one of three games in each of the 80 categories - the winners will be displayed at the museum starting March 16, 2012.

The nominees were chosen by Chris Melissinos, the founder of a website called Past Pixels for "their graphic excellence, artistic intent and innovative game design" and approved by a board comprised of developers, publishers, academics and gaming press.

I want this exhibition to include the collective voice of the video game world, which is not limited to the developers, designers and artists but also the game players. It is important to me that when gamers visit the exhibition, they find the experiences that most matter to them.

Among other nominees, there are three that are probably of most interest for The Vault readers - the original Fallout in the PC/adventure section of Era 4, Fallout 3 in the PC/adventure section of Era 5. Additionally, there's also Wasteland, the 1988 predecessor of Fallout, in the Commodore 64/adventure section of Era 2.
