I think they're too biased on next-gen games though because virtually ALL of them are new releases <_____________<

huh? They're categorized according to age of the system. PS3 section would obviously have... you know... PS3 games.

Awesome, I'm glad 2 made the list instead of 3. MGS2 doesn't get enough credit truly one of the greatest games ever made.

I has a sad about Shining Force 2. Also, I'm shocked that Minecraft technically falls under "Combat/Strategy."

But yay, Portal. I think I am going to definitely visit this exhibit. It looks really fascinating.

Considering the criteria on how they chose games, the list looks solid.

When I was first looking at it, I though it had to do with the most influential, or something along those lines.

Nothing makes you feel older than having your favorite games on display in a ing museum.

I saw Minecraft and almost had a spit-take.

I can't say its a bad list... but it's not my personal favorites.

It's not about favorites.

Portal and Minecraft are on there. I like the list. Also, No CoD game made it. Excellent.

Yes... I got that.... I'm not mentally challenged

Portal and Minecraft deserve to be there and they're favorites of mine! The rest of the list... deserves to be there too but they're not exactly my favorite games... Oh well. I just like to point out my opinion on a forum. Hurrdurr
