This is exciting news. It's great that video games in general are continuing to gain recognition as art, and of course it's always special to see Myst get honored.

The games, Ms. Antonelli wrote, would be selected according to the same criteria the museum uses for other collections, including “historical and cultural relevance, aesthetic expression, functional and structural soundness, innovative approaches to technology and behavior, and a successful synthesis of materials and techniques.”


Yes. That describes Myst quite well. :)
