"But I believe the nature of the medium prevents it from moving beyond craftsmanship to the stature of art"

The problem I see with his premise is that the word 'art' is a lot like the word 'rpg' - everyone defines the terms differently.

Addmittedly, I've never cried or felt sad over a story in a videogame. And even the most interesting videogame characters never stick with me like they can when reading a book orwatching a good movie. But they've certainly made me ANGRY - hence my handle, theMADgamer.
If I'm right but there is no wife around to acknowledge it, am I still right?
