The Art of Video Games

Chris Melissinos, Curator and Author of The Art of Video Games is on the podcast this week to discuss his role as Chief Evangelist and Chief Gaming Officer at Sun Microsystems, his book ‘The Art of Video Games’, and the Smithsonian Exhibit that is currently touring the country. With respect to the exhibit we cover the selection process for the systems and games featured, the feedback and reception from the gaming community and mainstream media, and the significance of video games in each of our lives. I was fortunate enough to see the exhibit before its time in Washington, D.C. ended, so this conversation was particularly exciting for me. Enjoy.

And be sure to check out his book, The Art of Video Games: From Pac-Man to Mass Effect.
