The video games as art debate rages on and it's gotten personal. Filmmaker Clive Barker (whose game Jericho ships next month) has taken a shot at Roger Ebert while proclaiming that video games will be showcased as art in museums around the world one day.
Regarding the whole "games as art" debate, Barker said he feels that video games have the potential to take us "everywhere – the same places all art can take us."
He continued, "If you walk into the National Gallery in London, you are presented with masterpieces of impressionism and glorious Dutch miniatures and so on... countless styles and forms of genius represented. One day it'll be like that for games... and we will be looking at these things the way we look at the great animated cartoons of Disney."
