James Portnow @ Gamasutra: "All the time in our media we hear people railing about what it will take for our medium to become an art form. I should know: I'm particularly guilty of shouting from the rooftops.
The problem is that we want to race ahead to becoming an art before we've done the groundwork that will allow us to develop a unified art form.
This leads to pieces of art emerging out of the milieu of 'games' but keeps us from becoming a coherent art.
Today I'd like to offer up one of those groundwork definitions that may help us move a little further down the road towards becoming an art. I'm open to criticism and correction. At the bottom of this piece you'll find contact information – please send me your thoughts."
