Art Games Aren't Superior

From eGamer, "It is 2013 and we’re into a new year of games with a great diversity of releases where it’s really difficult to pick a favourite. My biggest game this year will probably be Bioshock Infinite, which I hope washes away the distaste I had playing Diablo 3, and its abysmal ending. An ending which is far worse than Mass Effect 3′s mind you. In terms of what can be learnt from the past year of gaming is that 2012 has taught us is that games can solidly be both works of pure entertainment and pieces of art with the likes of The Walking Dead and Journey as marks of the ‘Games As Art’ movement. Other AAA titles have been the requisite populous form of entertainment as demarcated by a large proportion of critics. The argument I pose is that whether a game is purely entertainment, or an artistic expression, these factors are negligent to the quality of a game". (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Industry, Journey)
