Gaming as Art, and Why We're All Wrong

Don’t worry, this isn’t another piece on the ending of Mass Effect 3, but, rather, a bi-product of the fallout, and an entry into the perpetual debate of gaming as an art form. There are two camps in the Mass Effect argument (three, if we count the silent masses, but they won’t complain if we don’t). There are those who feel the ending of ME3 is broken, and should be changed, and there are those who feel that Bioware should hold true to their artistic vision. These two arguments fall neatly on either side of the “Are Video Games Art?” debate that has been going on for, it feels like, my entire adult life.

The story is too old to be commented.
