MoMa Adds Six New Games, One Classic Console to Collection

June 28, 2013 -

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) announced this morning that it has acquired six more video games and one gaming console for the Architecture and Design collection. These include works from the early industry pioneers Atari, Taito, and Ralph Baer, and from the comparatively young Mojang. The new additions are: Magnavox Odyssey (1972), Pong (1972), Space Invaders (1978), Asteroids (1979), Tempest (1981), Yar’s Revenge (1982), and Minecraft (2011).

The MOMA Blog offers a few more details on these new acquisitions. The games were selected using the same criteria that were used to select the initial 14 video games that were added to MoMA's permanent collection in November, 2012. More information on those video games and the selection criteria can be found in here.
