    Something positive about gaming for a change, I find this to be both a really cool video and a raised middle finger to Jack Thompson and all the other videogame haters out there.

    That was a pretty cool video, not sure if you could write a manifesto on it though.

    Well the last entry is "On a lighter note" or something like that, why not keep up the theme? And it could be easily written in. Puppies and kittens could be discussed.

    Thanks for the heads-up JCD. It's not quite my style, but it may be someone else's. Keep the suggestions coming!

    I liked that. Video games are really a new kind of art form. They tell stories like books, but are watched like movies. You participate in them so it's something new. I don't know, I think people are getting all worked up over nothing. Do violent books make people kill, rob, or steal?

    Video games are definitely in the realm of art, it's just becoming more and more obvious. I consider shadow of the colossus to be a phenomenal work of art.

    whats scary is ive played almost all of the games they showed in that video...

    Video Games are an art form, just like movies and music are, the problem is they are subjected to more control and that needs to be regulated better.
