That's not a debate

Video games are clearly art. They are a medium for telling a story, feature animation and music direction (just like a film), plus feature certain mechanics totally unique to video games while presenting that story. Most suck, just like most films and books suck. But the great ones are totally on a high level and very artful. It's particularly evident as the medium has improved drastically in the past 15 years or so. I would be willing to bet most people under the age of 30 or so would totally agree that video games are an art form.
