Qbert vs Ebert Over!

Well, it's a good day for cross-cultural understanding. Well, kinda. After several years of this, Ebert has a final chew over the art-question and admits...

I had to be prepared to agree that gamers can have an experience that, for them, is Art. I don't know what they can learn about another human being that way, no matter how much they learn about Human Nature. I don't know if they can be inspired to transcend themselves. Perhaps they can. How can I say? I may be wrong. but if I'm not willing to play a video game to find that out, I should say so. I have books to read and movies to see. I was a fool for mentioning video games in the first place.

That's for your permission, Roger! And, yes, you were.
