British video games will feature heavily in a museum exhibition that is looking to highlight the evolution of British design that has occurred over the last 64 years. Set to launch in time for the 2012 London Olympics, the British Design 1948-2012: Innovation in the Modern Age exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum will feature a variety of innovative technologies that have been introduced since the last Olympic Games in London in 1948. Numerous British video games will be on display, with the likes of Tomb Raider, Elite, Lemmings, Grand Theft Auto and Little Big Planet set to highlight the best in British-developed gaming titles, reports newspaper Huffington Post. Museum curator Ghislaine Wood explained, "We consulted plenty of people in the gaming industry, and it was clear that Lara Croft had to be in there. She was the first female action character." "Lemmings was a historically important early game from DMA in Dundee. Grand Theft Auto was the first cityscape you could navigate, and the game that launched Rockstar. LittleBigPlanet brings a new depth of user-generated content into games." The event is due to run from March 31 to August 12 in 2012 at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
