I like games, mostly thou strategy and rpg. So when I got recommend the documentary "Indie Game" on Netflix I watched it, and found it highly captivating. The documentary follows three indie game developer, and the passions that they lays into it is fascinating. A scene that made a particularly impression on me, was one where the developer of the game Braid, looked back on his critical and commercially successful game Braid, you could hear him say very emotional, that he was disappointed, that people only looked at on the surface, and not the thematics and the personal dialog he was trying to create.

Roger Ebert was frank in his view, that games could not be art. Many disagreed on the Internet, and probably nobody changed theirs view, at least Roger Ebert didn't. In the Brian Moriarty's 'Apology for Roger Ebert' the former game designer talks about what is art, and why games are not. Takes about 56 min. and elegant lectured.
