From the PlanetXbox360.com feature editorial:
"Many gamers have heard of, and whole-heartedly disagreed with, film critic Roger Ebert's latest argument against the "video games are art" statement (find the entire article from his blog at the end of this paragraph). Many a word has been penned in response, both from gamers who vehemently argue that games are the greatest art form ever, and from those intellectuals that claim that gaming is only for brain-dead morons. Having finally gotten around to actually reading Mr. Ebert's long-coming substantiation of his argument, I admit that at first my response was something akin to rage - upon first reading I felt insulted, berated, and condescended upon. How could he have qualifications to judge if games are art or not, not having actually played any? However, I then took a step back. I caught my breath, counted to ten, and all that stuff that's supposed to calm someone down (which for me naturally involves playing video games, of course). I then had the brilliant idea to actually read Mr. Ebert's piece again, to see how I can pick apart his arguments. Then something strange happened…upon this second reading, I actually found myself agreeing with him. Not entirely, of course. There are still plenty of points he asserts that I'd fervently disagree with until my last breath."
