This is probably the best choice.

That or a full encyclopedia would be the most useful.

If it had to be fiction though I'd go with The Brothers Karamazov

It actually is. Assuming only the books get burned - but people still have all their knowledge. Any non-fiction like Encyclopedias could be rewritten by universities, plays would be memorised by actors, even novels that aren't prose heavy could be rewritten collectively.

So the only reasonable answer is a prose heavy fiction book - that's also long enough that people wouldn't have it memorised, and culturally important enough to be worth saving.

Ulysses.

Not even bait. It's the only game I know of where the moral choices go beyond 'kill the baby and get extra powers or don't kill the baby'.
It's still obviously not as good as most literature, but for a video game it's great.

I also unironically think Hotline Miami is one of the greatest artistic works of this century.

Being cinematic has nothing to do with whether or not the level design is cover based. You can see the levels are open.

I hate this new generation. Video games are more akin to sports than films or literature. Games are about mastering skills and achieving the best possible results. You uncoordinated, modern retards just want movie games where you're only asked to press buttons when prompted to watch your character perform an action. Video games are dead thanks to you.

Did you not see the second part of my post? Hotline Miami is the greatest game ever made and it isn't any of those things.

And games are like sports if they retain the 'game' aspect. Being rid of that they can be art - even if it's just a replacement for installation art.

If they keep the game aspect then yes they're like sports. But if something resembling installation art - even like Dear Esther - was made, it could be art.
