Have you ever played a game so beautiful, so thought provoking, that you knew it was art? Too fucking bad. It's the future, and games still aren't art.
Games, right now, are caught in an awful in between. You have a generation of people, let us call them the "nay sayers", that is made up of our parents and their parents. Chances are, if you are reading this, you understand the potential that games have to be art. Chances are, if you understand this potential, you understand that your parents and their parents don't. That's okay. There is an even better chance that your parents and their parents have owned/seen/interacted with a Wii and think that they too can have in on videogames.
