Voting Extended for Smithsonian’s Art of Videogames Exhibit

smithsonianIn February, I wrote about the Smithsonian’s plans to curate a generation-spanning videogame exhibit. Despite my concerns about its treatment of genre, I still believe The Art of Videogames to be an exciting and worthwhile venture.

Fitting for an exhibit about interactivity, the games included in The Art of Videogames will be decided by popular vote. Popular demand has dictated that the Smithsonian extend the voting deadline until midnight on Sunday, April 17.

That means you still have time to head on over to the website and cast your vote. You need to do this. Star Wars: TIE Fighter and Diablo II are in direct competition. Someone has to help the Smithsonian make the tough decisions.

Find out more about the exhibit here, and book your tickets to D.C. to catch it at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in March 2012.
