According to our good friends over at SEGAbits, the original Sonic Adventure will be appearing as part of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s “Art of Video Games” exhibit. The game won via a public vote the Smithsonian held earlier in the year, over Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi.
Sonic Adventure wasn’t the only Sonic Team game to win, though. Phantasy Star 1 and 4 also made it, as well as Chu Chu Rocket. Unfortunately, Sonic CD lost to Earthworm Jim for the Sega Genesis/CD action game placement, and NiGHTS -criminally- lost to Tomb Raider for the SEGA Saturn’s action game placement. For a full list of winners, including a full list of every single SEGA game that made it in, head over to SEGAbits.
The Smithsonian’s “Art of Video Games” exhibit will run from March 16th to September 30th, 2012.
