Default Video games as Art

Quite a fun little item here.

When playing a really good game I have often felt it is akin to art, but hard to categorize.

Two games which I consider 'works of art', however they mean nothing to the casual observer, you would have to be invested in making your weapons, hitting the right spot or rescuing your slaves

Im getting a Retro Pac Man machine for our new house......

Im also patiently waiting for the new Sim City which is due out next year after a few flops from other Games House's which came no where near SC, Not to mention Elite's remake.

I played both of those.

Vagrant Story must be about the only PS1 game I kept. I still have it tucked away somewhere, along with the memory card. I also had a binder with the weapon combining stuff printed out. I must have spent about 200 hours on that game, at least!

Oh at least! I seem to remember spending a long time trying to get the 'Holy Win' on the second time around, but I didn't succeed.
