In November The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) made the announcement that it would add 14 influential video games to its collection. Included in the initial group will be Tetris (1984), SimCity 2000 (1994), Portal (2007), Pac-Man (1980), Another World (1991), Myst (1993), vib-ribbon (1999), The Sims (2000), Katamari Damacy (2004), EVE Online (2003), Dwarf Fortress (2006), flOw (2006), Passage (2008), and Canabalt (2009). Additionally, the museum plans to expand the collection to 40 games with titles such as Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda added to the list.

Glad to see Flow made it into the collection, there are a few that I have not played on the list but nonetheless, this seems long overdue.

On an unrelated note, I was roommates with Jenova Chen when he was working for Maxis (on Spore). If you are out there, Keep up the good work pal!
