The debate about whether video games can be considered art rages on.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts named "Sims" creator Will Wright a fellow. According to the story he shares the honor with the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Steven Spielberg and Alfred Hitchcock.
So let's have ourselves another poll. Are video games art? Vote on the right side of the blog.
I've always thought one day (and this may already be the case) there will be a field of cultural studies devoted to video games. If you think that's unlikely, you should see the volumes of analysis written about cultural drivel found on television.
Maybe this will light a fire under Will to complete "Spore."
