According to Paul Galloway, Collection Specialist, Department of Architecture and Design at MoMA and co-curator of the exhibition that puts interactive design at its center.

“Never Alone seeks to help us understand video games as various parts, different tools, and techniques that designers bring to bear to shape our experience with games.” Paul Galloway

Galloway added:

“There is often a kind of a conversation about games as fun, games as a diversion, but I think that there’s an increasing range of games that ask more of the players. When I played This War of Mine it made me sad, it made me afraid, it made me very tense, and in the end, it left me with a very changed understanding of what it is to be playing in a war space.” Paul Galloway

This War of Mine was acquired by MoMA in 2012, alongside 35 other video games as part of the Museum’s permanent collection.
