Roger Ebert is one of my heroes. No single person has had a greater effect on my love for movies than he has.
But this is one area where I disagree with him. Video games ARE art.
Anyway, this is a really sad day. Ebert was a brilliant critic -- brutally honest, funny, and, at times, even poetic. There will probably never be a critic as knowledgeable, as cutting, and as eloquent as him again.
Sorry to go off-topic. Just wanted to get that off my chest.
