Spector Brands Ebert Comments As Irrelevant

Industry legend Warren Spector has branded comments published by Chicago-based journalist Roger Ebert about videogames never being an 'art' as 'irrelevant':
“Videogames are just coming out of the period where I describe them as the medium adults don’t get. Roger Ebert is like the adult. He doesn’t get it."

“Whatever medium adults don’t understand can’t be art. Eventually those adults go away and new adults take their place, and some other medium takes the place of the thing that everybody hates. We’re coming out of that period now. What Roger Ebert thinks is completely irrelevant.”
Ebert made the comments on his Blog back in April and swiftly received over 4,500 comments disagreeing with his view. Awesome.
