* Paging Roger Ebert: You're Irrelevant

Personal Stuff/Random News
Kellee Santiago has an amazingly incisive retort to Roger Ebert's earlier, bizarre column about how video games "will never" be art:

But the final nail on this argument's coffin is the point that many, many of the hundreds of commenters have already made ? it doesn't seem that Ebert has played many, if any video games. And if that's the case, then his opinion on the subject isn't relevant anyways. The title of my talk was "Video Games are Art ? What's Next" because I felt it was time to move past the discussion about whether games are an artistic medium.. Similarly, it's time to move on from any need to be validated by old media enthusiasts. It's good for dinner-party discussion and entertaining as an intellectual exercise, but it's just not a serious debate anymore. As a rapidly growing medium, we game developers have so many other issues deserving of our attention.
On with the games!
