Sega cleans house at Smithsonian’s The Art of Video Games

You may remember awhile back I told you guys about the upcoming Smithsonian exhibit celebrating The Art of Video Games. Well the votes have been tallied and the results are in! Sega did amazingly well at the ballots, getting 13 games on the list. I’m bummed that Tomb Raider won over NiGHTS into Dreams, but Rez and Shenmue made the list so all is well. Hit the jump to see the full listing!
