It may not be art, but I know what I like.

It's been almost a year since Roger Ebert responded to Clive Barker
on the debate over whether games can truly be "art."
In support of Mr. Barker's position, here are some of the most artistic moments from games in recent years - the tragic
, the trippy
, the Saturday mornings
, the darkly comic
, the downs
and the ups
, and the rare phyrric victory.
For the record, I revere Roger Ebert as a film reviewer, but just disagree with him on this count. I apologize in advance for not including Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Deus Ex, Bioshock, or any number of other great games which I simply haven't played enough to know the parts to exhibit.
