Imagine instead a beautiful photograph in my example. Does anything change?

Yeah. If I saw a beautiful photograph, I would admire all of the specific things that had to come together just so in order to capture something so beautiful. If you then told me that it wasn't a photograph, but a detailed painting, then I'd feel like the image is now an artificial construct that was carefully pieced together under ideal circumstances. It would feel fake and unimpressive, regardless of the skill of the artist, because in the end it's not a real moment, but a carefully rendered facsimile.

PS. Games are not inherently art. They are an engineered product made by a company under a corporation's dime in order to extract money from consumers. They can be art, but are not art by default or design. Is the Slap-Chop art? No. Was the Slap-Chop's marketing art? Subjective. Was the Slap-Chop's marketing able to become art? Absolutely..
