Say what you want about Marvel vs Capcom 3 (and I'm certainly looking forward to it), but I'm actually more excited about Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. Fighting games don't have a long shelf life with me this generation because the multiplayer community seems to move on to the next big thing all the time. The Marvel vs Capcom 2 re-release that came out last year was in heavy rotation for less than two weeks in my online social circle before everyone jumped ship. Street Fighter IV fell out of favor far too soon for some reason. Meanwhile, I still replay Bionic Commando Rearmed two years later. I don't need a thriving multiplayer community to continue to enjoy it.
Moving on, I've managed to steer clear of it until now, but this week on Power Button we dive into the great debate of whether or not video games are art. Tune into this week's episode to hear Joey Davidson, Brad Hilderbrand, and I tear into the topic, but right now I want to ask you if you believe that video games are art. Yes, no, or maybe so? Let's hear your thoughts.
