    you guys know how well rockstar does dlc and "episodes" for its games like the grad theft auto series..do you think we can expect the same treatment for red dead redemption? if so what do you think it will entail? what would you like to see?

    I've come to the conclusion that art is any creative work that feels important, even if it's not presented as being something important, even if you have no idea why it feels important. If it has that kind of impact on you, even if it's a very vague, abstract impact, for you, it's art. In Bioshock, the choices with which you're presented seem to make an important statement on the nature of capitalism. It feels significant, having grown up in an American suburb, playing the "Wolverines!" level of MW2, because you get a closer idea of what it's like to see a war unfold in an area that could be the neighborhood you grew up in, and that that's what people in the middle east experience every day, and what every nation except the U.S has experienced in recent history. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, for me, felt significant, I don't know exactly why, but it's important to me, so it's art, as I view it.

    I would love to see feedback on tv but the commercials would ruin it, 50 uninterrupted minutes a week is awesome but i hate trying to pinpoint the play button on my dvr at the exact moment the commercials stop!!!!!!

    Casey Schriener + Feedback = intellectually immature awesomeness.

    Seriously though lets get Casey on he can talk MMOs, Patrick does the news, Abbie is the eye candy, Sterling as the everyman, and Adam is the ringmaster of what surely will devolve into toilet humor.

    I love Feedback I look forward to it every week, and honestly can not complain about the show in anyway. No hate here. But having a revolving door of "Featured Guests," could allow for different views and new topics on the best videogame podcast on the interwebs. Think of it, What does Olivia play? What kind of gaming rig does Chris Hardwick have? How does Blair Butler feel about Marvel vs Capacom 3/ Arkham Asylum? Does Morgan have a minute for Feedback? Can Kevin Periera beat Abbie at MW2? The mind boggles at the great new content that could be added to this already steady stream of amazingness.

    Thank you for your time

    I just want to say that everytime someone says feedback should be on tv, I cringe with fear because i dont have g4tv in my home. I REALLY love watching feedback so please keep it on the internet because not all of us have cable.

    OK, I'm sure everyone of you are aware of this ridiculous "Console War" that is taking place right now, looking at when the Nintendo 64, the PS, Dreamcast and even the gameboys came out, it seems as though those generations all had some of the same aspects that we have today.
    So How did all this competition arise so quickly in this generation, when previous generations didn't have this, or atleast, at this level??
    I, personally and proudly, call myself a Sonyboy (as nerdy as that sounds), i know you must review all games unbiasedly, but which console would you, or any of you, pick as your favorite?? FROM THIS GENERATION!! The NES doesn't apply....

    Sterling had some seriously bad ass and thought provoking insights on just about everything talked about today. Also question time was delicious. I love it!

    I saw Roger Ebert's article, and the video he was talking about. Kind of inspired me to make my own case that they are on my blog... http://aldowyn.blogspot if anyone wants to see. I think it's a pretty good argument, personally.
    I can see where he's coming from, but he seriously needs to play the games, or at least watch someone play them.
    I also disagree with Santiago's choice of games to show as her examples, because they don't emphasize how mainstream video games would be art.

    ... My opinion on those generic parents that play Farmville and Wii games are wasting their time. >.> Well, Farmville at least.

    Bethesda's worlds are too... awesome, to have issues with traveling anywhere. Oh, and you guys all just proved that realism really doesn't matter.

    That poster's friend is SERIOUSLY missing out. Case in Point: Mass Effect. and God of War. Hmm...

    YES you talked about SWTOR! Revolutionizing the MMO, I tell you. And it's Bioware... *passes out*

    Sheesh, I'm 16 and multiplayer for me when I was little was Smash Bros. and Co-op on things like Return of the King and Rogue Squadron.

    Adam, I reject your assumption that young people cannot write good questions.

    Actually, Mass Effect's villain, Saren, kind of disappeared for most of the game. Of course, I was seriously annoyed at him by the end because he barely got out of the last time I encountered him and he got one of my squad mates killed.. I definitely see the point there. The big bad should be the BIG BAD at the end...

    Huh. Another opportunity to talk about Mass Effect. The actual end boss battles in both were kind of lame (Stupid pointless resurrections), because one enemy is pointless against you, but the end SEQUENCES were epic, actually hard, and awesome.

    ... You know, I would love to be part of a show like this.

    Superman Game: I am hard pressed to come up with a way to make a good game with him as the protagonist. It just seems to me that a good Superman Game is very hard to make. If you are invincible, it is boring. If you have no powers at all it is not a Superman game, it is a episode of Smallville. To make a game where Superman has to quest to get his powers back... sound a bit overdone, I can think of 3 God Of War Games that have already done that.

    I think we should be focusing on why there has not been a good Superman movie since 1978. Maybe when that nut has been cracked a good game could follow. As long as it was not a tie in.

    hey, i'm english. you do have accents, they're american ones. btw i was thinking about what you guys said about MvC and how it's only as deep as far as you put effort into it, and how halo works in the same way. anyone can make an explosion, but only a savant can get a killtacular with the magnum

    I think that we need to clearly distinguish between the normative sense of art (in which we pick winners) and the nominal sense of art (in which we simply note that something art-like is being presented; say in third grade art class). We have fairly good, if vague, definitions of art in the nominal sense: it is an act of expression or an evocation of emotion. Whether it is good enough to be Art (in the normative sense) is a question of how we value it. We may not approach games as Art now: once we did not approach movies as Art. Read something along the line of Horkheimer and Adorno's The Culture Industry to get a feel for the way Ebert's preferred type of Art used to be treated by the high-minded intellectuals of the early days of the motion picture industry. They simply could not see how we could come to value movies as Art. Luckily, for Ebert, we have groped around in the dark long enough to come up with some way to evaluate movies as Art; to separate the movies that are artistic from the films that are Art. Despite the title of Ebert's post, he really makes no argument as to why we cannot evolve to a point where videogames will be valued as Art. And, unless you want to take a Kantian position and argue that taste is objective, when we start to value games as Art, they will be Art.

    Clap if you believe is about as good a definition of Art as any....

    Oh, and Patrick has the way better fro.

    On the whole games as art thing, I think it's funny that a film critic should be the one to say that games aren't art considering that both mediums are amalgams of other, 'purer' art forms like literature, photography, or painting.

    To me, there is no reason why games couldn't be considered art, it's just that very few even bother striving for that distinction, much like film.

    In the end, I think Adam made a really good point about the importance of this whole thing. It does seem that a lot of gamers are up in arms about this because they're looking for validation for what they do and care about. Speaking from the stand point of a gamer and comic book creator, another much maligned and stigma filled medium, there is no point in seeking validation for what you love from other people. If video games move and inspire you, than they are art, and all that crap hanging in galleries or whatever, that doesn't mean a damn to you, isn't.

    Do what you love people.......unless what you love is boiling people in urine and then eating them.

    That's just gross.

    Everything else is cool, though.
