Discussion on Videogames

It was brought up that videogames are not art. And no one explains why, This article tries to look into it. The reasoning seems to be that videogames don't try for meaning or interpretation. The good game creators give you emotions and things to think about. But nothing out side of the game. So there is no way for videogames to be art.

This article is about Wikipedia but really it deals with some of the same subjects.

I guess the best move would be to make a game where the game shows different sides of a real situation. Would that even sell? Such an interesting question. I don't know if I have anybody really following this blog. ButI am curious if any readers have any ideas or opinions on the matter.
