The Art of Video Games exhibition (opening March 16, 2012)

I remember voting on this many months ago, as it will feature the art, design, music, etc to go into games. 

Some of the games that will be featured at the museum are Mass Effect 2, Starcraft, Uncharted 2, Tomb Raider, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, a whole bunch of Zeldas and Marios, Starfox, Portal, MGS, Minecraft, Halo 2, Diablo 2, Bioshock, Doom II, Fable, Space Invaders, Fallout 3, Heavy Rain, and Final Fantasy VII.

How many of you will be or want to check out the exhibit?

Yeah hopefully it will make it to more across the country/world, but we have to wait and see.  Exhibits don't move fast :p
