Are computer games an artform?

Ars Technica has a very interesting article: http://arstechnica.com/articles/cult...-writing-1.ars

It deals with the question of whether good writing in games is bound to rise, how it is perceived in the business, and whether good game writing isn't really an indication of artistic expression in the same manner as novels or movies...

I'd take KotOR2 as an example. Even though the game is harmed by cut content, the writing and dialogue is still rather unusual. How many have quoted Kreia in their sig, for instance? I know I have...


"It is all that is left unsaid upon which tragedies are built" - Kreia
