Max of Koku writes: "Some time ago, legendary film critic Roger Ebert made the controversial comment that “video games can never be art.” Since that point, the entirety of the gaming community has responded with reasons as to why video games are art, including a few editorials on this site. About a month or two ago, Ebert finally justified his opinion with a rather well written argument, which I heard about in a response to it by acclaimed game developer Ken Levine. As such, I decided to read Ebert’s argument and throw my hat into the ring of this great debate by picking Ebert’s argument apart. After all, Ebert’s argument mostly involves countering the points of a keynote speaker to justify his point of view, so I don’t see why I can’t do the same. So with that, let us examine Mr. Ebert’s argument, piece by piece."
