As a book addict, I absolutely adore every tiny book allusion Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events makes. Including praising every library in the story. It’s nice to know there are other literary junkies besides me.
So this may be mildly insulting to our entire industry, but I feel as though I have to ask: will games ever cross the threshold into "high-art"? I know plenty of literary/philosophy junkies who see games as hopelessly kitsch, but don't know that it's the fault of the creators or the inherent fault of the medium.
I don’t care. If I ever spent more than a fraction of a second worrying about whether the games I make (or anyone makes) fit into someone’s definition of what high art is, it would be too long.
