For being a person who has personally been to the Smithsonian Art Museum, I am very excited to pass on the news that the Smithsonian Art Museum will be revealing a video game exhibit next year. The exhibit will be located on the 3rd floor North and will be available to the public from March 16, 2012 to September 30, 2012. A public vote was held to decide what 80 games would make the exhibit, but along with those 80, 5 playable games will be available for the public to try out. You can see the full list of winners below.

The following games topped the public vote and will be featured in The Art of Video Games in 2012. A PDF with more information is available here. In addition to the 80 games below, five playable games will be included in the exhibition: Pac-Man, Super Mario Brothers, The Secret of Monkey Island, Myst, and World of Warcraft.
