Over the last fifty years video games have gone from scientific curiosities to fads to becoming one of the most popular forms of entertainment earning billions world wide dwarfing the film industry. The exhibition “Game, le jeu video a travers le temps” (History of Video Games) at the Foundation EDF revisits video games from Ralph Baer’s legendary “Brown Box” (1967) to Pac Man to mobile gaming and immersive virtual reality (until August 27).
The exhibition —curated by journalist Jean Zeid— features approximately 60 games including 30 hands on playable ones. “Game, le jeu vidéo à travers le temps” is a fascinating journey to a uniquely digital space where art meets science meets popular culture.
