The question of whether games can be considered art is an ongoing debate, but one developer wonders whether the question should actually be the other way around. In a refreshingly satirical look at the question, Sophie Houlden turns the tables by describing her inability to really understand art because it lacks many of gaming's most important characteristics. "I won't deny that my wall looks more interesting now that I put an art on it," she writes, "but does art compare to games?" Be sure to check out the source link below to find out the answer.
