On That Games As Art Note

So, if you’ve been around gaming circles in the last age, you may remember that whole Rogert Ebert “video games aren’t art” debate, in which Ebert says games don’t count as an art form, and gamers unite to call him an idiot. And while I generally respect Ebert, I think you can guess which side of that debate I come down on – I don’t think you get to look at almost any given narrative-driven game and believe it’s not art on some level, especially if we accept literature and movies as art forms. All that said, I’m not particularly interested in that line of commentary, and if you want, Shamus Young did it better than me. After the jump, […]

I’m going to spend some time rambling about Planescape: Torment, but first, you should check out this picture, but it’s quite amusing really. So, ok. For those of you who missed gaming 11 years ago, Planescape: Torment is the second game Black Isle did with the Infinity Engine after Baldur’s Gate, which you are required to have heard of in order to participate on this blog.
