Games as art as games

"Problem Sleuth" @ MSPA

This is a "webcomic" I've been enjoying for some time now, and I thought I'd share it with the rest of you.

The design for the "comic" is based on old text adventure games.  The "prompts" are taken from the viewers of the site.  For more information on his method and his other work, check out the rest of the site, in particular the FAQ.
When approached in the right way, do you see text adventure games as a form of interactive art?  For me it is hard to think of them otherwise.

For a good introduction to the genre, you can find ZORK, a very good example, here.
