Gamertell has posted an article where the writer ponders whether or not videogames should be considered for the Hugo Award, an award given for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy.
From the article:
"[G]raphic novels will soon be eligible for the prestigious Hugo Award. The notion does have to be ratified, but if it goes through, 'Any science fiction or fantasy story told in graphic form appearing for the first time in the previous calendar year will be eligible.' It got me thinking - if graphic novels are enjoying literary legitimacy these days, could videogames be next?
We all have our favorite examples of which games we feel qualify as bona-fide works of art or pieces of literature."
