Video games have obviously had an impact on society in a similar way to art forms such as movies and music. The idea to preserve the video games in a canon is excellent. One of the most fascinating parts of this class has been to see the evolution of video games over the years. These game designers are taking that and allowing everyone to see that evolution. It is interesting that they picked those games as their top 10. They are games that everyone has heard of and probably played, as well as games from different categories (god games, one person, multiplayer, online, etc.). I definitely agree that Super Mario Bros 3 should be on that list because it is a game that almost every person can relate to their childhood. Video games are a billion dollar industry, just like the movie business. If movies should be preserved as they have with the National Film Preservation Board, then video games should definitely follow suit. The only question I have would be how they are going to decide which games make it on the list and which do not. How should they decide if a game is actually worth preserving in the canon? Would it be based on how many people have bought or played the game or would it be based on how well-known a game is? I think this is a great idea. Once all of the minor details are figured out, it will be fascinating to see which games make the cut and which games aren’t worth preserving.
