Video Games: Play, Design, Disrupt - ★★★★ - Until February 24, 2019


For those who play them and those who haven’t a clue, this exhibition is fun and informative. The exhibition reveals the wide variety of video games from the ethereal and meditative “Journey” to the old standard run/shoot/fight game updated into experiences like “Bloodborne”. There is lots to see and learn here about the development and design of games that have become a new branch of the arts. The breadth and scope of different games is fascinating, and the show addresses some of the major critiques leveled at these pastimes: violence, male centric, only for kids. There is also some fun interactive spoofs of the games. Bravo to the V&A for recognizing this design revolution and presenting it in a fascinating exhibition.
