A worthy question.
By the way, was that a Paperboy joke?

no it's Mario Kart. That's what Toad says all the time.

Wait, did she just steal that from a museum?

Rivers Wells:
A worthy question.

Might have been better if it had been.

...this one wasn't really that funny, imo.

Well there are interactive art pieces out there. And if the piece involves the viewer to change the piece on a videoscreen for fun, does that not constitute art as a 'videogame'?

\o.O/

Rivers Wells:
A worthy question.
By the way, was that a Paperboy joke?

No, it's Mario Kart 64!!! Have you ever played?

seriously hilarious. A+

Yeah, Toad does say it, so it's most likely a Mario Kart joke.
Freaking hilarious either way.

Art is controversy (Please don't touch).

Art as a game? Photoshop.

Not only does she say, "I'm the best!" But she throws a picture of a banana. Totally Mario Kart 64.

Ha I found this funny, so is there a piece of art with a turtle shell on it?

Rivers Wells:
A worthy question.

Nope. That was a Mario Kart joke. A funny ass one at that.

Great question and the answer is yes. Art can be video games. Alix just proved it XD

HA!

Although when I'm driving, I throw turtles.

Excellent. I particularly like that she stole it from the museum for that exact purpose.

Indeed... Now how about some GTA! Yes, no, maybe?

Actually they can act as video games. Anyone remember Echochrome!? That game proved that the works of M.C.Escher (and the mindfuckery of it all with it's perspective changes) can serve as a damn good game.

Toad is the best :)

Anyone else think of the Velvet Underground? No? Just me? Ok, then.

great example.

This is art. You will hear a buzzer. When you hear the buzzer, stare at the art.

On topic: Does Black Velvetopia from Psychonauts count as "prior art"?

Im glad Videogames are considered an art now, but Im still waiting on Trolling to be considered a art.

also, damn you banana peels, you are just as bad as the blue shell of doom.

And so Jack died, when he lost controle of the bike. His death was long and unbearable.Alix was found guilty of reckless driving and manslaughter.
Kinda a buzzkill there.

uhg... damn performance artists... XD

Now we can just brush away all the nay sayers.
I hope this means that future games will get more varied palettes.

she doesn't strike me like toad... more like Wario....
hmmmmmm

The writer is familiar with Damien Hirst I'm guessing. That's...actually kind of impressive.

Haha, nice.

I still think that Bioshock is one of the greatest pieces of art. The setting, the atmosphere, the story... All united in wonderful harmony.

If that's not art, then I don't want to know what art is.

And the Portal quoting begins...

hahah in all seriousness though this was a great one. That Andy Warhol painting would be worth thousands, and she just threw it under a moving motorcycle to prove a theory... an incredibly awesome theory lol

I'm surprised it wasn't a lesser artist getting teabagged at an exhibition.

YES! Someone got the title! I'm so happy. And I have witnessed his work first hand. Quite interesting indeed.

Root of all Evil, you've fufilled your moniker. Someone microsoft ban this last spoiler.

And funnay comic this week. Keep it up

I'd be careful saying they're gonna get the respect they deserve

Brilliant comic...

And...yeah I can see art as video games...maybe if we tried to do something like Fantasia was to animation, then I can easily see that happening. Night on Bald Mountain with Amnesia: The Dark Decent gameplay?

Hell to the yes my friend...
