Hit the jump to read the rest of Ebert's comments.
At first, we might not agree with Ebert's theory, it can be attested that we must not get into a huge debacle over games as art. After Ebert published his piece, the critic's Twitter feed was filled with counter-arguments against him. Ebert quickly refuted the arguments with videos against the topic. Like film, it will take a few years before we can classify video games as a high art form. Despite the control aspect of Ebert's argument, games can be an improvisational form of art. Until then, we as gamers, should not make this a huge topic of concern.
