1. Video game or art?

    Do video games belong in museums? Today, the Museum of Modern Art in New York said yes.

    MoMA just announced the acquisition of 14 games, ranging from arcade classics like Pac-Man (1980) to Canabalt (2009), an indie game released online for free.

    With Kickstarter experiencing the Year of the Game — 259 game projects have been successfully funded in 2012 so far — it seems like a perfect moment to ask a couple big questions:

    What makes a game art?

    Which games should MoMA add to the collection next?

    Let us know what you think.
