National Endowment for the Arts now endowing games

0

The National Endowment for the Arts provides funding in the form of grants for a wide variety of creative endeavors. Now, the NEA has replaced its "Arts in Radio and Television" category of grants to a much more expansive "Arts in Media" one which includes digital games. Just so we're clear, the United States government will now be funding the development of videogames.

This is the most awesome thing I've heard all week. Independent developers are going to get money to make games. Videogames will get a little bit more legitimacy. And people who would like to see the NEA dissolved and stripped of all government resources now have a new thing to call wasteful. Everybody is going to come out a winner!
