    My first brush with video games as real art, the kind that becomes a part of you, was in Ninja Gaiden for the NES. Not only did the game include cutscenes with a real plot and characters, but it had a phrase that I can still remember today. It’s silly, but it’s also a part of me now, and that’s what art does.
