Recently, (in fact last week) in the gamma 256 events. Some indie companies exposed experimental games using weird pixel ratios, and ideas. The main concept was to demonstrate how video games are art even if a majority is merely selling out.
Now, saying video games require little skill is something you said so easily but do you know what you are talking about? I talk about because that's what I do. And in order to do that my graphic skills need to be very high. Great knowledge of human anatomy, and muscular movement and interaction.
theory of colors, lights and shadows, and so much.
I would really like to know what you consider art then. Bornforbanning, with all the respect due, your statement (once again) sounds elitist and ignorant.
