Stop painting yourself into a corner, all of you... Shakespeare is about sex and flatulence and prostitutes and all that good, hedonistic stuff. It wasn't high then, it is just considered high now because the language isn't contemporary. Challenge: try comparing video games to things like FLUXUS and other post-war avant-garde movements. Ebert might disagree that these movements are art, but they are valid comparisons when looking at participatory and performative structures that discuss audience/author boundaries.
