"Just because ATR come on like a lurid, excessively violent Manga comicbook, programmed at flicker-speed with all the sensitivity of a video arcade cop-killer game, certainly doesn't make them less 'artistic' then the Empire solo discs, which are couched in the 'art music' trappings of the Mille Plateaux label."Without opening up the "Games as Art" debate, I think it's interesting to note that both music and comic's have come through the gauntlet of "Is it Art?" and emerged as some of the foremost harbingers of culture and popular art of our times. I continue to look forward to this broadening of scope when it come to video games because I can't listen to Digital Hardcore for the rest of my life, but I want to keep playing games that stimulate my adult mind.
