We agree, and now they do belong in a museum. Well, some of them at least.
The Italian government and private investors have been making a big deal about the Italian games industry as of late, and part of that initiative is the ViGaMus, a video games museum that, according to edge-online, will focus on "the history of videogames along with current trends, and will host industry exhibitions and seminars."
Marco Accordi Rickards, director of the Italian Association For The Interactive Multimeda Movement claimed that "the ViGaMus project is a clear indication of Italy’s ambition within the videogames industry".
We love the idea. More details about the ViGaMus will be revealed during the Italian Videogame Developer's Conference which takes place on December 3-4.
