i think one of the fundamental problems with "art games" is that they want to be more like a gallery installation and less like chess.*

the problem with the general over-the-top reaction to the ebert thing is that the engine behind a lot of it is this:

1) cultural icon declares games worthwhile
2) Huh
3) respect!

otherwise why care what ebert, who everyone agrees is not really into the whole games thing on any level, thinks?

* it is entirely possible that i am "missing the point" of such exercises. such is life.

Well, I guess it's a concession to believe that some folks in art world will consider video games art, but not this High Art quotient. Can't win them all.

It has a much better chance of getting to the High Art world via the same kind of process as the Lowbrow movement, which to an extent is how Kauffman is being repackaged for discussion in the Cinema end of High Art.

So Ebert doesn't hate video games anymore. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe...
