The problem with Roger Ebert's analysis is that he is not likely a expert on video games. He knows a lot about literature, film, and other sorts of artistic expression, but I doubt he knows too much about video games. As a person that briefly studied film, and has had a passion about it for well over a decade, and also received a degree in literature, I would say there are definitely games out there that have rivaled the artistic and emotional impact of those mediums. Sure, many others are money-grabs and shallow, but how many rubbish films come out for each truly great one? Either that or his video game time is too occupied by Call of Duty.
