Does it count as a real game?

So, my wife and friend have been colluding behind my back - something about me not getting enough game time in.  Add to that, said friend's wife just had their second child, so he's a little home bound for a while.  Add to that, he just got the newest expansion for Battleground - the Romans.... 

I've played 2 games via powerpoint and gmail chat.  The games look something like this:

I take my turn, moving the objects that are the cards (all to the correct scale), and drawing arrows for the shooting where needed.  I send him the power point file, he opens up we resolve the combats, he marks damages, flips cards around when they run (and do those smashing arrows) then does the "X" if they died for one reason or another. then takes his turn.  Copying the slide to a new one and making the changes.  I roll dice on my end, he rolls dice on his end.  Snarky comments ensue.  Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

So, a 2000 point game which normally would take no more than 1.5 hours takes 3-4 (usually over 2 evenings)... but I ask the question, does this count as a game?  :)

Space Hulk... boy, I do suck at this game. But it's fun. :)

Got 4 games of Space Hulk in on Sunday.  Played the first mission twice on each side yesterday.  Once at the game store, 'nids won both of those, then again with the wife after I put daughter down for bed.  She won both of those missions - and had fun to boot.
