Video games are more than art. They contain all other art forms within them. From dance and architecture to comic books, fiction and film, at some point, all of them have been incorporated into a game.
I think one has to separate the playing of games from the designing of games. The latter is clearly art. The former is not.
empath, similarly, I suppose the reading of novels isn't an art? That's a really weird way of thinking about things.
Didn't Ebert already cop to being in the wrong about video games?
If someone does something 'artistic' within second life or minecraft, what is that and how is it distinct from the creation of a game like minecraft itself?
It's annoying to me the way that art in games is defined in relationship to "story" compared to cinema and literature.
