The question “are video games art?” became a heated topic of discussion after Roger Ebert denied the artistic nature of our hobby a long time ago. Yet, it keeps resurfacing here and there once in a while.
Today that question was answered over Twitter by two of the front men of soon-to-be Sony Interactive Entertainment, Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes. Interestingly, their answers are quite different from each other.

Personally, I hold no doubt that video games are art. Of course, your mileage may vary on this. What is your answer?
