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.
Spy Vs Spy
Good for Phantasy Star and After Burner.
SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive
Phantasy Star 4
Dune II: Battle for Arrakis
Earthworm Jim beats out Sonic CD. We’ll ignore how EJ is multi-platform.
Tomb Raider – We have no idea how NiGHTS missed out here.
Panzer Dragoon II: Zwei – which mysteriously was in a different category to PDI.
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.
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.
Panzer Dragoon Orta
PDO sneaks ANOTHER category, this time on the XBox. Zelda actually picked up FIVE winning games overall. Mario got four.
