Default Museum Exhibits about Video Games in Paris and USA

There has been a certain stigma attached to video games as parents question their impact on children. However, more and more research has surfaced regarding the benefits of gaming, such as promoting a healthy diet, decreasing lazy eye in children, improving blurred vision for adults with amblyopia, and helping those with post-traumatic stress disorder. In recent years, video games started achieving new levels of validity – Symphonies around the world now perform music from video games. Parents are on board with video games that make kids get up and move around (Kinect, PlayStation Move, Wii Sports, DDR). More and more universities are integrating video game degrees, including the well-known New York University. So what impact does this changing outlook have on games?

Article features the current exhibit "Game Story" at the Grand Palais in Paris, as well as the upcoming exhibit "The Art of Video Games" at the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum in Washington D.C. (which will later travel to other museums around the US).
