I think of games as the greatest pieces of art, some of them combine most aspects of art such as drawing, storytelling, music, and other things. But like some people have said, games are mostly for entertainment. Alot of people (like jocks, rednecks, and 99.9% of the girls at my school, thank the geek [yes I meant GEEK] gods that my girlfriend, is, in my opionion hot, and geeky) won't say games as art, most of them say games are: stupid, for kids, lonely people, people who don't have girlfriends, don't have much to do. Like I said, most people just think of them as entertainment and some people feel the need to label there game as an "art game" because they want people to know that there game isn't just a regular game. It's a game thats supposed to envoke people's feelings.

Art is something more then just esteticlly pleasing backgrounds. And art isn't something that only makes you feel immers. Art is something that makes you feel that time has stopped. I don't think majority of games are art. but there are some close to it. Same with films. Only few of those could be considered art. Art is something that makes your imagination spin. Not only staring at the moving pictures. It's mostly just plain entertaiment.
