So, Was It Art? Smithsonian Art Of Video Games Results

You may recall from a couple of months back the vote the Smithsonian Museum were doing to identify games to feature in their Art Of Video Games exhibit. SEGA platforms were represented well and they have now released the results which are currently being discussed on a uStream account. You may not agree with all the results here, which shows the SEGA-related winning games or indeed on the full listings – I certainly don’t.

Colecovision

Zaxxon

Master System

Marble Madness
Phantasy Star
After Burner
Spy Vs Spy

Good for Phantasy Star and After Burner.

SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive

Earthworm Jim
Phantasy Star 4
Gunstar Heroes
Dune II: Battle for Arrakis

Earthworm Jim beats out Sonic CD. We’ll ignore how EJ is multi-platform.

SEGA Saturn

Tomb Raider – We have no idea how NiGHTS missed out here.
Panzer Dragoon
Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei – which mysteriously was in a different category to PDI.
SimCity 2000

Ironically they decided to talk about Tomb Raider instead of the game series that took TWO SLOTS on the Saturn. Again, was Tomb Raider really an important Saturn game.

SEGA Dreamcast

Sonic Adventure
Shenmue
Rez
ChuChu Rocket!

No major shocks here, the uStream duo (who by the way intimated the Playstation was the first real gaming console…yeah…) made a point to discuss Rez.

XBox

Panzer Dragoon Orta

PDO sneaks ANOTHER category, this time on the XBox. Zelda actually picked up FIVE winning games overall. Mario got four.
