In just more than forty years, video games have evolved from technological novelty to cultural staple. That transformation is chronicled in the Aurora History Museum's "Growing Up Gamer", a look back at the history of video games as home entertainment that documents not just gaming's origins but its impact on our culture. "Last year the Smithsonian American Art Museum did an exhibit about video game art, and the graphics treated as artwork," explains MaryJane Valade, curator of exhibits for the museum. "But nothing we could see as an actual history of video games."
