Video games are steadily becoming more accessible as an entertainment medium, but are struggling to be recognized as an art.
They are art, because it's a method were humans can express their emotions, but not as high as music, filming or painitn can be. I think this because a great majority of video games are made "to satisfy the demand". If a programmer can't put whatver he wants in his video game because the players don't like the idea or concept, then stops from being so creative. Video games are services, that's what most of the time I think.
They've been art since the medium was first born. Any medium can be art if it presents itself in a way that it can interpreted as art. I don't know why this discussion exists; the answer's been clear since the very start.
