BeefJack's Matthew Lee analyses whether the games industry needs more time to catch up with the likes of cinema.
"Games are a young industry, people say. They’ve not been around that long. Developers need time to find their feet. You can’t compare videogames to film – cinema took a hundred years or more to get where it is today. It’s a tempting position to adopt, one that people take up time and time again as more and more people argue over whether or not games are art, or if videogames are a waste of time and so on. But you can make a very good argument that in many ways it’s nonsense."
