    With a history spanning over 40 years, the aesthetics of games has evolved to include cutting edge design and technology interspersing gifted storytelling with interactive experiences. 
    How are games made? Do they express complex ideas? Do they explore life? How do art, design and technology intersect in the creation of games? Do games belong in museum collections? How do games help build community and forge social connection?
