With thanks to Andy for the link, I'm reeling from reading an astoundingly poignant piece on the potential for games as an emergent artistic medium and art form. N. David Griffin over at configsys.boy! has posted a must read entitled Arts and Electronic Entertainment. I continue to be generally optimistic that the games industry as a whole is on the cusp of something extraordinary. Similar in concept to Vernor Vinge's Singularity, as published on KurzweilAI.net, I sense an imminent evolutional jump that will set new standards upon which all new forms of the expression will be referenced. Mr. Griffin emphasizes this by expressing concern for a collective conscious effort to break through the stagnation building mind sets that plague the games industry today. Fantastic.
