I would have to disagree with mr. Rushdie on the point
(that games are not 'truly' art), It sounds like he excludes the posibili=
ty
of interactivity by the spectator in any artform.=20

   'DC: But this is really subverting what you want from art.=20
        You want to be taken over and you want to be-'
   'SR:Shown something.'

I find that opinion rather puzzeling. Am i missing something?
