I suppose one could say that video games have the POTENTIAL to be art (even bad art)but just because they're primarily a visual medium/experience certainly doesn't make them art by default. I suppose the potential is there. Rather than ask if video games are art a person first has to define exactly what art is. There are museums full of pieces that many consider art but that I think are garbage (not even bad art). It ultimately comes down to the individual and for me I agree with the writer. It doesn't really matter.
