As someone who is really passionate about games as art, I think this is a pretty good list and I am so happy to see Mirror's Edge represented there. One of my favorites from an artistic perspective. Also, Red Dead Redemption was developed by Rockstar Games not Naughty Dog. ;)

I still don't understand the strong positions people have with respect to classifying games as art. I mean, why does that distinction matter ? It all seems rather pretentious.

by default all gamers are art.

All film, music, GAME etc are art. That has nothing to do with what you feel about it.

video games ingeneral are art, not just cause they look some type of way.

I agree. It shouldn't even be a discussion any more. Why is it that so often only the masterpieces in gaming are considered art? Just as in any other medium, be it traditional, musical, cinematic, etc., there are masterpieces, mediocrity and outright garbage.

Wrong! Games are electronic shadow puppets

Video-games don't really fit the dictionary definition of a toy though: "an object for a child to play with, typically a model or miniature replica of something." Are you a child?

There has been many toy's made for adults thru the years. Not all toy's are for kids remember the singing wall bass.

Well...they allow for interaction. Often suggested to people by age. Meant for entertainment. Certainly fits a number of commonalities with toys. Maybe they are toys.

They're also interpreted subjectively, invoke different feelings in different people, fetch a high price based on rarity, and have a number of exhibits that allow people to indulge. Sounds like art as well.

How about that....

To add to your 2nd paragraph...and are often created by secluded, eccentric people who use the medium to express their inner selves with an end product that makes the people who come in contact with confused and intrigued and excited at the same time.

I'm looking at you Kojima, From Soft, Ninja Theory etc.

Agreed.

I don't know why that person things that a toy can't be art LOL! Did they really think that concept was exclusive to 1 idea?
