Not this again

Dear Roger Ebert,

You are not going to prove your point by setting up false dichotomies. Which is more valuable: the Mona Lisa or Beethoven's Ninth Symphony? Which is a greater accomplishment: Apocalypse Now or the Taj Mahal?

It's not the first time he's tried this tactic -- setting games as a genre against a single masterwork in a completely unrelated medium to provide "proof" that games aren't art. It still doesn't work.

And on that note, I'm about to disappear into the wilds of the East Coast for an excellent long weekend with amybang and anzubird and many many Mawrters. Reunion, yay! I'll have my phone with me, but not my computer, so I'll be a bit scarce around these parts for a few days. See you when I get back.
