There seems to be a common impression that games are on the cusp of being great art, like we're about to have "our Citizen Kane"...
We aren't. We haven't even really hit talkies.
While games look very advanced, that's deceptive: the advanced part is the stuff we've stolen from film, like film originally stole from theater.
The potential of games - as a media - is not something we've even begun to grasp, even by people aiming for that specifically.
