Roger Ebert Eats his Words

When film critic Roger Ebert declared that video games can never be art, he set off an internet firestorm.
At this moment, 4,547 comments have rained down upon me for that blog entry. I'm informed by Wayne Hepner, who turned them into a text file: "It's more than Anna Karenina, David Copperfield and The Brothers Karamazov." I would rather have reread all three than vet that thread. Still, they were a good set of comments for the most part. Perhaps 300 supported my position. The rest were united in opposition.

Today he reversed his position. NeatoGeek has more. http://www.neatorama.com/neatogeek/2010/07/01/roger-ebert-admits-that-he-was-partially-wrong-about-video-games/

Don Draper said it best: "You're a non-believer, why we should we waste out time on Kabuki??"

From what I read, he didn't even play or see the games in action (even though he was offered).
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
