<< Whoa . . . after the hit the NEA has taken for "Piss Christ" and
Maplethorpe's work, do we really want to embrace video games (especially
the blood splattering, shoot 'em ups) as another art form? I have a
problem with these videos as an entertainment form, let alone art!
You're looking at the content and intent of some video game creators and
judging them all. Creating the games is an artistic process. Don't blame the
process for the products of many. That kind of reasoning would eliminate
video, photography, film, painting, etc. All have been used in ways
objectionable to many.
