In recent years, Roger Ebert has become a significant critic of videogames. Not of the industry or the aesthetics of any particular game, rather he has disavowed the medium itself. Videogames can never be art. Ebert recently reconsidered the question after a reader forwarded him Kellee Santiago's recent TED presentation arguing that games are art. Five years ago, Ebert made his original assertion that games could never be art in the same way as "serious" film and literature can.
