It already has several Times over. Anyone who says otherwise never played Bioshock, or Chrono Trigger, or Ocarina of Time, or Half Life, or MetalGear Solid. or well the list is long. There's dozens of games that have proven time and again that the medium has evolved to a grown up state.

By comparing it to citizen kaine just cheapens the whole deal. Games aren't films and shouldn't be held to the same standards because they're not the same. it doesn't need a citizen kane moment.
