GU PSA: "About Roger Ebert"
Posted: Wednesday April 28th, 2010 by

When Roger Ebert first said games can't be art, I shrugged it off. But, I let Ted make a comment about it because he serves as the voice of gamers even when I do not. The second time however, it just wasn't important enough for me to address.

Ebert was responding to a speech given by thatgamecompany president, Kellee Santiago. He took the time to pick apart each of her comments. It's a petty tactic often employed by the typical forum flamer. But to do another comic about it lends more credibility than I felt it deserved. Not to mention I had the distinct feeling that it was just a bid for traffic. **shrugs**

The bit about Roger Ebert writing softcore psuedo-porn, true. Check his IMDB profile under writing credits.

If you want to read more about my take on the matter, you can read my article at the as of yet unreleased GU Gaming: "Roger Ebert: Video Games Cannot Be Art".
It's unreleased because it's not finished. So don't expect everything to work if you do go. I was just being lazy and didn't feel like rewriting it all here.
