GameCity6: More to Games than Playing

Nottingham Trent University’s GameCity is an organisation that promotes videogames as both an art form and a unique proposition for modern entertainment. The merits of videogames as an interactive medium have been debated many, many times, and it’s not the intention of GameCity to retread this old ground. Instead, at this year’s ongoing GameCity festival, known as GameCity6, gamers, interested parties and general passers by are encouraged to pick up a pad and try something new. (3DS, Android, Battlefield 3, Casual games, Cryengine 3, Crytek, Culture, Dev, GameCity, Industry, iPad, iPhone, Mobile, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Retro, The Legend of Zelda, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wii, Xbox 360)

I can't say I can see what this festival has to do with the advancement of games as a unique entertainment medium, nor do I see how any of it involves "trying something new."

It's basically a video game festival where people can... play games.
