Women have created, or contributed to, scores of video games. Putting together a museum exhibition to highlight their work would be a way to reclaim some of this overlooked history…
Only one exhibition of any note has been dedicated to video games made by women, last year at the Museum of Design Atlanta. Among the games included were League of Legends, possibly the most played game in the world; the immensely popular Skylanders: Giants, part of a series that has made billions of dollars for Activision; and N, a diabolically difficult game about the many deaths of a stick-figure ninja.
“Our big sort of ‘aha’ moment was, everything seems so disjointed,” said Celia Pearce, the Atlanta show’s lead curator. “There doesn’t seem to be any consistent thread through this exhibition. And then we went, ‘Oh yeah, that’s the point.’ ”
