Can a game be art?
First off, I would let you know that this subject is covered to the point that I would generally stop reading an article at the above sentence. The debate is drawn out, full of abstract notions, and impossible to ever resolve. As such, I think I've seen enough about the topic to last several gaming lifetimes. Simply stated, the argument and discussion has no conclusion and is as good a thought experiment as any zombie apocalypse scenario.
