We often hear about art as a vehicle for empathy. It's easy for us to connect with the subjects of photographs or novels (here's a great breakdown of how that applies to film ).

You're not just passively sitting and watching a narrative, you're controlling a character as your avatar. That leads to a level of agency and connection that's very different than most other mediums. (And let's not get into the whole "can games be art?" thing. Any creative medium can be artistic, we're better off focusing on what each of them brings to the table.)
