Gee, I clearly don't want to discount the skills of a gamer. I've been

sounds too crass ;-)

I'm sure you'll all agree that there is quite a bit of skill to learning
a musical instrument. There's no argument here, right.

But, the art of expressing a piece of music with the skills one has
toiled many years to acquire is clearly not the same as the skills
acquired playing a video game(s) and the act of playing the game.

Perhaps people are mixing the definition of "skills" with the true
meaning of "art". They are not the same.

Then I ask: what art are you expressing when playing a game?
