LONDON (Reuters) - Video games take centre-stage in an exhibition at London’s V&A Museum that kicks off this week, looking at how the popular leisure activity has been designed and played since the mid-2000s.

“Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt” features concept art, prototypes and materials from major studios as well as smaller independent designers developed in the age of smartphones and social media.

The exhibition also explores the role of online player communities, fan art and the rise of a Do-It-Yourself arcade scene.

“Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt” opens on Sept. 8.
