PLEASE NOTE: This article was not up to the standard I want to keep and has been deleted.
I will be revisiting this concept of video games as art at a later date, but for now, please check out the following links for the fellow who inspired this article in the first place: The Game OverThinker.
I've not encountered another individual talking about video games with the intelligence that this fellow is doing so. I recommend it not just for gamers, but for anyone who enjoys videos with a little depth to their arguments. A little crude in his language, but he brings an educated opinion and intelligent argument to every topic he tackles.
Below are some favorite OverThinker videos of mine.
