Roger Ebert Backs Down On Video Games As Art

Jhyrryl writes “Roger Ebert has again posted about video games. It’s an apology of sorts, for having publicly said that games are not art. He wrote, ‘I should not have written that entry without being more familiar with the actual experience of video games. … My error in the first place was to think I could make a convincing argument on purely theoretical grounds. What I was saying is that video games could not in principle be Art. That was a foolish position to take, particularly as it seemed to apply to the entire unseen future of games. This was pointed out to me maybe hundreds of times.’”
