Ya know what really grinds my gears?

I saw another headline for an article about the whole 'Are Games Art?' thing today. This is easily one of the most futile debates ever. Who cares? Does being classed as 'art' some how legitimise the medium? As if one day we'll wake up and suddenly games are no longer mere entertainment tools, but works of art and instantly our views on them will be changed. It's ridiculous to think that anyone has the power to suddenly decide that any medium should be classed as 'art'. No-one has the right to tell me what is and what isn't.
To whoever has decided to elect themselves as the worldwide minister for culture:

Go fuck yourself, we don't require your validation.
