Thirteen interactive environments and 150 playable computer games feature in the exhibition Game On: The Culture and History of Videogames, which has been designed by Shelton Fleming and runs at the Barbican Gallery in London from 16 May to 15 September. The show explores the technological and social development of gaming over the past 40 years, with areas covering arcades, the making and marketing of games and visions of the future.
