So, I recently read Ebert the movie critic doesn't think video games are art. Well, actually, that was a while ago. But, he said it again, saying that they don't take as much effort to create, they aren't art in the sense that they make you feel. That's bull. The fact that not only does he say that, but he comes back and says it AGAIN sickens me. People put their hearts and souls into video games, and he has the gall to shoot them down? I used to value his opinion (despite his absolutely atrocious movie ratings. Spawn is good now?), but now I see he's just another person who thinks that their smart by criticizing things. Ebert, you should stick to the thing that at least makes you appear intelligent.

He's a biased ass. He hates specific genres and that's just sickening for a movie critic. I haven't heard about the video game stuff but this just makes me hate him even more.

I used to think he was intelligent. Wow. Apparently he has jaw cancer. Means I won't have to listen to him anymore.

Wow the disrespect because of some one's opinion about art is disconcerning. His jaw cancer is in no way funny (my opinion). Ebert may be detatched from the video game generation, he may be incorrect about his assumption,he may not either way the jaw cancer thing....not funny, at least to me.

It wasn't meant to be funny. I am seriously annoyed because of this. It was ok when he said it the first time, then he went back, and elaborated even more, shooting down people by saying that they didn't take as much effort, or that they couldn't effect people the same way. I may have overstepped with the jaw thing, but Ebert is too far over the line here, and I'm annoyed.
