Chris Melissinos, technology figurehead and guest curator of the Smithsonian's Art of Video Games exhibit, shares an enlightening perspective about what makes games an art form. 

In this short video, Chris describes three voices that contribute to the making of a video game; the designer, the game mechanics, and the player - where games then become art. If you're not into videos, there's a neat article that you can check out here

The Art of Video Games exhibit opens at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on March 16th and continues through September 30th of this year. DC Metro area, you have no excuse. Go.
