Back in February, we brought you the story
about the Smithsonian's upcoming "The Art of Video Games" exhibit which is scheduled to open next March. In an outreach move to the gaming community, the curator of the exhibit, Chris Melissinos, wanted gamers to pick the games that they felt would be worthy to be included. Today, the winners were announced via webcast.
