Are Games Art?

Post by Zombi3 g0 RAWR on Wed Jul 07, 2010 2:34 am

Are Games Art?

I was flipping through my Game Informer (issue 207), when I happened on a very interesting page. It was titled 'The Great Debate'. The article was about people debating weather or not video games are art. This made me curious of other people's opinions. So now I bring to Fatehehhhh's Forum of Death; The Great Debate.

So forum. Are video games art?

Yes. There are artists designated specifically towards making each game unique and entertaining to look at. This is how an actual piece of art is made, except on a far smaller scale (down to about one person).

I agree with you greatly.

Video games are indeed art.

Or at least in my opinion.

I agree.

Great games and great art have a lot in common when it comes down to the goals that a game creator or artist must achieve to make something popular or generally appealing.

I don't think it can be said better, DJ.

if you need time and skill to do it then i think it should be art...
but sports are not art.
Video games are beauty all in there own.

True and there is an episode of simpsons where homer makes inventions and also throws random scraps of metal together and considers it art. Art... Much like PAIN... is all in the mind I beleive everything is in your mind if you think it hurts it hurts. if you think its art then it is art in your mind.
