The US federal government, by way of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), now considers video games a form of art, making a true step toward recognition for the oft under-recognized form.

Looks like we who believe that video games are an art form have our opinion agreed with by more influential people than you might like to think.

So there!

Yet another thing the Federal government is getting wrong... ;)
Like many things in life some games are art and some are not.

In TV, True Blood might qualify, This Old House might not. In books, the Lord of the Rings would qualify, the service manual for a 1977 Ford Pinto, not so much.

Put in proper context, I'd say that any of the things you mentioned could be art, and in another context, be artistically worthless.
