I can read a book and pull themes from subtext and narrative. I can observe a Monet and take in the beauty of its color. I can watch Rogue One (for the 4th time) and appreciate the effort put forth by its actors. You know what I can’t do? I can’t get past the wind tunnel level of Battletoads. If you know what I am talking about, you have my deepest sympathies. This game and many others have made me appreciate what video games require as an artform. Video games are the only pieces of art that demand you “beat them” in order to fully appreciate them.
