Summer term has begun, and with it our reduced hours of operation. We'll be open Monday - Friday 1-5pm through August 18th, when the term ends. Then we'll be closed for the intercession, and will reopen with the start of the Fall term. So enjoy the outdoors, and don't forget to play some video games during the afternoon heat while you still can.

Popular Games During the Winter Term

Here is our list of most popular games during the Winter term. We had our usual blend of sports games and first person shooters at the top of the list, with a roleplaying game and several games for the Wii & Wii U making an appearance as well. Our PlayStation 4 consoles were popular during the term, but didn't make the list because people tended to try several different games on them rather than focusing on just one, as was the case for the Xbox One.

Are Video Games Art?

Late in the Winter term, several students from Kelli Wood's class (HISTART 194: Video Games - Cultures in Play) presented their final projects in the Duderstadt Gallery, in an exhibition entitled, "Are Video Games Art?" The exhibition included several meaningful presentations, and highlighted some of the game systems in the CVGA. We wanted to share some pictures from the event with you.
