The Gamer's Heritage

When everyone was playing PacMan twenty-five years ago, few could predict that he'd end up reinterpreted in a museum.

The recently opened i am 8-bit exhibit in Los Angeles reinterprets classic video games, from old-school hits like Super Mario Bros. to more recent genre-definers like Street Fighter II.

With the stunning realism of today's games, my kids may well see a wax figure of Final Fantasy X-2's Yuna at Madame Tussaud's.
