Is video game music in the same realm as serious artistic music?
If not, if a renown artist composed some music for a video game would that music be devalued because it's part of the video game, and thus not be in the same realm as other artistic music he may have contributed to?
Generally, no. Video game music is most often composed specifically for the game it's in, and specific songs are tailored for specific moments in the game. If the composer makes the music for his or her own sake, it is possible, but would likely not fit with the game. Evergrace is the closest that comes to mind in that regard.
About a renowned artist working on a game, it falls along the same lines. If they're restricted to make their music fit a certain situation, they don't really have the room to truly express themselves. An example of this I can think of outside of video games is with Bjork. She did the soundtrack for the movie she starred in, Dancer in the Dark. While the album with that music, Selmasongs, is quite good, I'd say it still lacks the artistic expression that any of her other albums has.
Video game music is generally composed for heavy repetition and use with the sound effects of the game.
I don't think this is generally a bad thing, but it should be noted if you're going to judge vidya OST on its own merits.
