If video games are not considered art then the Mona Lisa is just paint on the wall.

I agree.

Plus, comparing a videogame to a painting is pretty silly. Music, videogames, film, paintings. It's all art but different kinds.

Ebert is a smart man though, he's becoming irrelevent due to the internet. Instead of reading a newspaper to see his reviews, you can go to rottentomatoes or other sites to get reviews. He has to say outlandish things like, "videogames can never be art," in order to maintain his presence in the media.
