The little that I remember of the game is pretty positive...

I've played every official video game (yes, all of them) and I remember being surprised by War in the North, having low expectations and expecting it to be like The Third Age - which was pretty boring.

I seem to remember Rivendell the most. Speaking to the eagles was really cool and collecting material for Arwen to create Aragorn's banner - the developers did their homework for sure. Not very memorable apparently, though. I suppose the characters were a little bland?

As for the entertainment/art argument. It's frankly absurd to say that video games are not art. If movies like The Room are art, then The Last of Us most certainly is. To argue what "is" and "is not" art is to miss the point. Anything can be art, but that doesn't determine the quality or value of the thing. There exists good and bad art, and if a video-game is exceptionally good then that doesn't make it more like art.
