Op Ed

Destructoid - Are videogames art, and an explanation as to why that question is retarded. By Gearbox's Mikey Newman.
Everyone catch that? I didn't do a fly by there and make you spill your coffee and shout "Maveriiiick!" at the top of your lungs? People posturing themselves above the question, as if they're in a place to decide what IS or IS NOT art, is so unbelievably pretentious I think Gus Van Sant himself might be thumbing his nose as we speak. (Maveriiiick!)

i never really cared about this issue (still really don't) until i played the andrew ryan part of bioshock or the "no russian" level in modern warfare 2 (yeah, i never gave a shit about it until it came out, never heard any of the "controversy").

those two parts, being forced to do something i found kind of repugnant, made me react in a visceral, considering way that i can't recall any movie ever really evoking. that was when i decided that yes, for me, videogames reached the next level.
