I keep posting in these but of course you keep deleting my opinions.

You can't just change the definition of the phrase "fine art" because you like this art.

It's skilled art, it's great art, hell maybe it's even "high art," but fine art is a thing and this is not that thing. That doesn't mean it's less creative or beautiful than other art, but it is not fine art.

It is concept art, it is art that is meant to define a world in which a game will be made. It is commission work, it is illustration, and it is gorgeous illustration work, but in the end there is no meaning to it other than "this is a landscape, use it as inspiration to build a product that is fun," especially considering the franchises they represent.

I don't blame you for wanting people to appreciate videogames as art, but just because they can't be "fine art" (yet), doesn't mean they AREN'T art. Plenty of things that speak to me and that I love and that I appreciate with my entire being are not "fine art," and I can accept that because I know that just because something isn't fine art doesn't mean it's worth less to the world and to me.

Slapping an arbitrary "fine" in front of the article doesn't prove it to Roger Ebert or anyone else who doesn't respect video games, and it also is a big slap in the face to the other articles that you label as just regular "art."
