Video Games 2007

Final Fantasy XII screenshot (enhanced)BBC Technology presents its review of the best video games of 2007 and highlights the record-breaking megabucks now being made by the industry. Sales in the UK are at an all-time high: "more than £1.52bn taken in the last 12 months". Halo 3 earned £84m in its first 24 hours on sale! What surprises me is that art reviewers totally ignore this booming area of artistic creativity. How can art pundits witter on about best-selling contemporary artists or the most influential people in the art world while ignoring video games? This is where some of the best of modern art is to be found. Forget that chump Duchamp. Whoever invented Space Invaders was the most influential artist of the 20th Century. Anyone know his name?
