Yet the debate about video games as the artistic cousin of movies and such lives on. Recently, a satirical article "reported" quotes from film director Steven Spielberg about the subject. These quotes were best summed up as "games can't be art." Unsurprisingly, this article was taken literally by a lot of pissed off people. One part of me thinks some gamers overreact to suggestions that video games aren't art, but I also have to admit that satire like the aforementioned article is dumb in the first place.
