Laura Parker takes us on a quick tour of what you can expect when visiting the ACMI Game Masters exhibition in Melbourne, Australia!
Even though the gaming industry is relatively young in comparison to all the other art forms, it is nice to see this type of appreciation towards it. I believe starting a museum for gaming is something important; a lot of games, systems and other gaming related items that are important to preserve and keep in such a fashion are already lost. Until recent times, most people (other than serious gamers and video game collectors of course) never considered video games as an actual art form, and they were treated like toys that are expendable, hence the loss of great gaming history, and the importance of having such a museum.
I like your perspective! One day historians will look back on this time and share their thoughts, directly to the minds of others, so that they may ponder the evolution leading up to the virtual reality entertainment they enjoy.
I imagine it will go something like, "This video from the now obsolete internet, presented by the immortal Laura Parker, although lacking the full virtual perspective we have grown accustomed to marks the time when the greatest artistic revolution of mankind began. Gaming was just beginning to emerge from its first dark ages. The technologically incompetent where becoming a vast minority, allowing those more qualified to analyse and promote the gaming art form to have a bigger voice. Also, corporations who had usurped the creative leadership of true artistic geniuses for years, like the Tim Schafer, and replaced them with money driven pawns who couldn't even begin to understand the creations they were giving birth to, where beginning to lose total control. The toppling of the mega game corps however is covered in many more mental projections for another time..."
