Yesterday somebody on cable news had a fairly reasonable conversation about video games as an art form.

In the video above, taken from MSNBC's The Cycle, host Touré sat down with Paola Antonelli, senior curator for the Department Architecture and Design at the MoMA, about the inclusion of video games in the museum. They talked about interaction design, some of her favorite games (Vib-Ribbon and Passage) and why they chose not to include any shooters in the collection. All-in-all, it's a shocking example of measured, temperate discourse.


I could have done without the random Marcel Duchamp primer in the beginning, but it's still a damn sight better than what you normally hear on the news.
