The Jimquisition: Big dumb shooters are better than art

0

Past and present Destructoid editors have talked about how games should be more than simple, mindless fun, and while I wholly appreciate that games can do "more", I've been trying to express my thoughts about "dumb" videogames versus "art" games for a while, because I'm not a fan of the "fun isn't enough" mentality.

This week seemed like a good time to do it, funnily enough. 

In defending games like Bulletstorm, Gears of War and God of War, I make the case that mindless fun is just as valid, if not more so, than most of the "arty" games on the market. I probably didn't express myself as coherently as I would've liked, but I think I did okay.
