GrE writes, "Cinema, theater, music, and art proponents, in general, believe their medium is the absolute best. Let's get this out of the way as painlessly as possible: video games are a form of art. There is emotional expression, detachment from reality or momentary diversion, visual style, controls, score, etc. Many small parts combined to create a greater whole. Touching on set theory, we can say that if everything in the set shares a common characteristic, that is a characteristic of the set. Now we know video games are art. With all art there are devout supporters, extremists, or fanboys."
