People actually list films that have artistic merit over pure entertainment films, they are saying that certain films are artistically and objectively better than pure entertainment films. This doesn't hold true for games since they have no artistic merit, they're either walking simulators, 'Choose your own adventure' cgi books or games with 'art' draped over it.
