video games will only be art once it becomes possible to make a video game so boring that no teenager could possibly like it

my actual belief is that there has yet to be a video game that is:

1. at least as popular as those fuckin boring ass movies that win oscars like the king's speech or some shit
2. incredibly boring

unfortunately most games that achieve the levels of tedium that the king's speech aspires to are made by game design grad students and are therefore never played by anyone, people just pretend to play them and talk about them at mixers


the closest stuff to this is the like incredibly fastidious military strategy games they talk about on three moves ahead. the sorts of games rob zacny fuckin loves where you have to like radio a guy with your orders and then he radios another guy who actually gives the commands to your units five real-life minutes after you pushed the button
