Forbes magazine proves to be better than gaming journalism when talking games.

So this is the guy who supported the fans and helped rip game journalists a new one back during the ME3 fiasco.
This guy gets it.


No, he's just another whiner who thinks he can dictate art.

When I said Kain was on the side of the ME3 ending haters, I did NOT mean it as a good thing.

It's nice that we have at least one review publication that isn't totally beholden to industry giants. See how Forbes doesn't have any AAA gaming ads plastered all over their site? That's why their game columnists can be honest and unbiased.

Wait hold up. I read his articles on video games such as ME3 and DmC.

He also reviews art? Find out something every day. But I think I'll pass on those reviews though.

Personally, no. While I greatly enjoy video games, I do not classify them as an art form.

Sure the visuals might be nice, but nope, not art.

Kamiya also thinks games are not art.

Surely it's art in the sense that Jersey Shore is art.

haven't read the article! not because I'm what you hater would call a "pro", but because the idiot who wrote that article used the OLD OUTDATED Dante Design from the very first trailer as an picture for the heade. That's NO GOOD! this already shows that he hasn't really followed the games development, maybe even not played the game at all and now rampaging about something he doesn't know.

If he REALLY would be an professional, he wouldn't use outdated pics like this. I mean, I hate that old Dante design too, but between this, and now used design, lies WORLDS! Look!

Wow, you're right man! They totally got rid of one necklace and stuck his pants inside his boots instead of outside! WORLDS different!

The only game I'd call art is Metal Gear Solid 4, for its specific kind of cutscene interaction, for its pointless weather information, and for the iPod and all that it brought. Some other stuff too, but I don't remember them at this point. I remember many game mechanics feeling very tongue in cheek.
