All right, James, don't make me start linking, Bub-style, to old columns.
Games are not art. They are entertainment. If you call games art, you open the door for anything to be art. For instance, if games are art, I defy you to name any form of entertainment that isn't art. Rap? Country music? Magic tricks? Stripping?
BTW, there are plenty of art forms that constantly evolve and change. Sacred literature. Oral folklore. Director's cuts of Army of Darkness.
Okay, I'm done. For now.
