Games as Art Discussion

Oooh! Almost forgot!!! The Ludologist reports:

“Join us on Wednesday, November 1st for a chat with on the subject of games and art with Henry Jenkins, Jesper Juul, Marc LeBlanc, and Eric Zimmerman.

Are games art? If not, why not? And if so, why? Is thinking of games as art useful or actually a hindrance for game developers? If games are art, what should our aspirations for the form be?”

Network: irc.freenode.net
Channel: #gamesandart
Time: 6 PM PST, 9PM EST, 2 AM GMT

There’s a link on how to get on the IRC (which I honestly don’t even know what is yet).

Doubtful that I’ll be awake – but you might! Great minds talking about an interesting subject!
