i disagree video games are a form of art. A game being to immersive is like saying the monalisa is an incomplete painting. Censorship in this world has just become to stupid and strict on the media but doesnt restrict people like the idiots at the westboro church from "thanking god for dead soldiers" and protesting soldier's funerals. Oh, there is actually a story in ManHunt 2.
As for your pro gamer friends, I'm a former pro in Unreal Tournament 2004, for PC games we care about fast framerates with no lag, we will turn our games to low graphical settings and 800 by 600 resolution. For consoles we should have to suffer from lag, and framerate issues so graphics should be able to free to create wonderful worlds displaying each developer's own art styles.
What does any of this have to do with Nintendo? Wii devs are free to create and explore and render their own glorious art styles. Zelda fans would say Twilight Princess' art direction was magnificent, and it had no framerate issues at all, I might add.
Who gives a rats ass that TP wasn't drawn and textured for 1080p?
