"When Roger Ebert declared that video games could never be a true art form on the order of film and literature, it ignited the outrage of game designers and fans alike. After all, in fusing visual art, music, story, and interactivity, games could be considered the ultimate artistic medium. But he raised a point: Video games often strive to offer a compromise between traditional art forms and the interactive. After all, if a war movie is art, and a game of chess is not, would something that combines the two not be a diluted artwork?"
