Many have already expounded on the “game-as-art”… I remember your highlights on Myst vis-à-vis Doom

Seeing passed the fact that most video games are consumer products for purchase, socio-cultural creative forces do exist – not only in making (including user-created content), but in playing video games: an entire generation has grown up immersed with playing video games – they do not read the instruction manual for a video game, they just begin playing and figure things out along the way. It’s the gamers’ mindset, a different way of learning and knowing than the previous linear cultural standard of consuming knowledge. Optimistically, it’s a way of knowing the world as a place of creation – rather than of consumption.

For better or worse, the new medium and art of video games is changing the way we think.
