Educated Gamer: Ars Gratia Artis

Excerpt:

"You often hear people say, ‘you have to suffer for your art’ but why? Surely suffering for the purposes of entertainment is just suffering for the sake of suffering. It’s not like someone’s life depends on whether an opera is any good, just someone’s evening, so why all that effort?

Does anybody really like opera, does it make any sense? Who does ballet appeal to? What do they represent? Does anybody real act the way they do in plays or in movies? Do games represent real life or parody it, make a mockery of it? Does any of it matter? Actors and dancers are treated like performing chimps, for what? What is the meaning of art and why is it so important?" (Culture, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
