@Juub1990: interesting take, I like that.
If a game is boring and a slog to play through I don’t think it’s a work of art in its medium.
I dated an artist in the early 2000s and I remember going back to her place the first time. I enjoyed some of her paintings and sculptures but then she put on music she had made. It sounded like someone banging pots together with power tools running in the background. When asked I told her “sorry Jean but this is shit”. It isn’t art imo just because it’s original and other people at her fancy art college “get it”.
I think that applies to other forms as well.
