Arthouse Games

A thoughtful thread.

I would note that I for one reject any comparisons to film, I am not sure films yet qualify as an art form at all, certainly not a mature one its akin to being commented on by a graphic novel critic. Interesting but raises an eyebrow that perhaps ones own house should be put in order first.

I would be more interested in the thoughts of say Robert Hughes or a poetry or music critic. The reasons are two fold. Firstly poetry and painting are unquestioned art forms unlike film and so their views have more weight. Secondly these are all older forms and so these critics would have a perspective on how their art evolved over time which would give us a deeper insight on the future of interactive art.
