“Bad is Beautiful,” Owen McLean’s recent exhibit of bad games at the Game Center attracted a lot of press. Some people seemed to be most interested in the bold inclusion of GoldenEye as one of the terrible titles. The entire exhibit turned out fantastically, attracting both those that already loved the games and people who would never look in their direction. Visitors all paid a little more attention to the games, seeing them for what is to be enjoyed about them and it ended up being a lot of fun for everyone there.
The exhibit got quite a few mentions in the press; Kotaku and Forbes considered GoldenEye and the way time effects games while PixelPerfect Magazine their response to the show as a whole and how it had changed them (or not) as players.
