E12: Museum Piece

by Brian Fife

Recorded on December 10th, 2012 with Brian Fife, James Fingal and Thomas Westberg.

Recently, MoMA announced their plans to show a collection of video games in 2013.

The challenges of collecting and showing video games are discussed, and Jim, Brian and Tom talk about thier reactions to the games that were selected - this list is very different from what we would expect to see on any serious gamer’s top ten list.

This will be that last podcast of 2012 - but we’ll be back in early 2013 with more episodes.
