Not a bad article, but really, can any art be called art? There's a million dollar painting of a black circle on a white background, they call that art. There's an entire gallery of art here where the paintings are just paint tossed onto the canvas, and they sell for hundreds of dollars. So is any are really art?

Funny how you say this, I do not know if you are familiar with "katamari" as the game recently was introduced into a gallery as art, sadly I can not remember where, most likely NYC, I'll try and find the link if you are interested.

similarly there is a thread and community on Facebook to have video game music introduced into the classical hall of fame. In fact in England (where I am from) there has been numerous video game music shows, where popular game music has been recreated in a big hall, classical high brow style.

I think maybe the problem is, still vg are thought of as nerdy, or not accepted as a true medium. Some of the vg sales last year out grossed Hollywood block busters, and I must admit there are certain games, where I think, omg that is amazing!! As in the vistas or whatever.

It's all perception though I guess, for example right now I am hooked on minecraft, that game looks rubbish as in graphically, but even on a high powered machine, you forget this after a while. Even if you are making a a panda out of cotton will ;)
