This is a terrible science experiment.  Where are the controls? People shown random pictures that are totally neutral? You need to get a baseline for the randomness that occurs with popping the bubbles.  And what is "cute" for one person might not be for another.  You also have to prove that popping bubbles is a sign of aggression.  It might just be boredom.  Or it could be a proxy for saying something, when you have nobody there to say something to.

very good point, some people like me find baby snakes adorable while most people would find them gross.

I think there IS a useful discussion to be had about how "games" as a medium can innovate more and grow as a separate art-form than the other forms of media.  And ultimately, "games" differ in that they have game-mechanics.  Some sort of volition and interactivity.  So if we focus on game mechanics and interactivity, we can push the medium further.  If we focus on narrative and reduce the amount of interaction to that of "Dear Esther", or simply focus on graphic quality like AAA games, we can still come out with something entertaining, or that expresses an interesting story, like a book.  But it won't push our medium forward.  Those things keep the medium static.  They don't push the boundaries in any meaningful way.  So I think there IS some value to pointing out how those types of "interactive experiences" while they still achieve a form of expression from the author/artist, doesn't actually add new territory to the medium of games.

The more I see of Michio Kaku, the more I realize he's like the Bill Nye of Classical Physics.  He's not that smart, but he's always the spokesperson interviewed for theoretical physics when idiots in the media want someone to answer a ridiculous question with a really fuzzy/incorrect answer that sounds like wu-wu.
