As a gamer starting to get a little older I read stuff like this and think to myself, "You know, if I ever get to a point where I roll over into the generation where I can't see the modern culture of the day I hope someone either slaps me or puts me out of my misery." But rather than lament the fossilization of a once insightful critic, let me point you to Kellee Santiago's response, Right. Moving On...[My Response to Ebert] as it was her talk at TED titled "Video Games are Art - What's Next" that sparked his latest column.
Meanwhile, here's the rest of what was going on around the video game world today:
- Left 4 Dead 2 'The Passing' DLC Coming This Week
- Activision: 'We Treat Our Developers Extremely Well,' Call of Duty Dev Infinity Ward Restructuring
- LittleBigPlanet 2 Confirmed by Musician
- Ubisoft Doing Away with Printed Manuals
