Why does this article look like it was written by a 12 year old?

It's an OK read, but seriously, fix the obvious mistakes.

It fits the n4g community quite well, and is disproportionately of quality content on the scale.

Have some respect for the community. N4G users aren't stupid and we can write. In fact, we often have better points and debates than the articles we fight about. Why are you here if you have such a low opinion of us?

@spread That is rich coming from you.

That is your problem right there. People here think their amateur stuff is good and have better points. The content here is pure clickbait and the people here are pure toxicity. Look at the comments around here.

You mean GaaS is an art form? Until you drop that as you plans going forward I can’t take anything you say seriously. Gamers don’t want that crap.

Realistically there is nothing that says that art can't also be a commercial venture.

I do believe that gaming is a special kind of art, just like movies, books, or music can be.

I really don't disagree with the quote, I just don't really feel MS looks at games as art, but rather as a commercial venture, and they forgo the art of creating great games to focus on ways to make more money. It's one thing to shape the art to suit the audience, quite another to bastardize one's artistic vision to try and make more money off that art in the form of supplemental purchases or services.

Gaming since the beginning has always been a special art form that brought people together. this is pretty much a case of stating the obvious.

Mr. Negative.

Always negative!

And you are always predictable and disrespectful to be honest.

I would argue that gaming started off with quite the negative stigma. Seen as a hobby for pariahs, delinquents, the non-athletic and dropouts. It's always been an art form sure, but it's come a long way to being universally (for the most part) accepted.
