This spring, Van Gogh's The Starry Night and Dali's Persistence of Memory will be getting some new electronic roommates. Fourteen video games, including Pac-Man, Tetris and The Sims, will go on permanent exhibit at New York's Museum of Modern Art, which is regarded as the world's most influential museum of its kind.

Among the video games in this landmark collection is Flow, co-designed in 2006 by a Chinese graduate student at the University of Southern California.

Although the game has its fans - its PlayStation 3 version was nominated for downloadable game of the year at the 2008 Interactive Achievement Awards, dubbed "the Oscars of video games" - Jenova Chen, or Chen Xinghan, was still surprised it was the one among his works that got picked.
