Games, a creative form "older than culture," have served humanity in such diverse ways as entertainment, education, exercise, conflict resolution, ritual and self-expression. But not until the 20th century did games and the play experiences they provide start to be perceived as an art form as well. With nods to the past and future, and with an open acknowledgment of all the awkwardness, bravado and measured successes thus far, The Art History of Games seeks to more clearly articulate the importance of games as a form of art.

The Art History of Games was a three-day public symposium organized by Georgia Tech Digital Media and SCAD Atlanta, where members of the fields of game studies, art history and related areas of cultural studies gathered to investigate games as an art form. Leading game theorists and historians from around the world gathered in the High Museum of Art's Rich Auditorium on the campus of the Woodruff Arts Center, in midtown Atlanta in February 2010.
