                       Are video games art?

Are video games art? Well I always thought video games are a form of art. Mainly because that video games start out being an idea. Then they have concept artist drawing the characters and worlds. So yeah, do I think I'm still having that same opinion? Well not really.

I seen this article right here, and it has brought a new opinion to form for me. This guy in that article did compare sports to art which I find oddly logical. He explained that sports carries out emotion and has a story behind the art, but is it considered art? No.

Which brings to my newly formed opinion? I think video games have some artistic values to it, but is it considered art to me now? No. It is something better.

Video games are an amazing immersive experience that we escape reality to fully enjoy such great adventures! Video games makes us feel successful even though in real life we may not be! Why should it be in the same level as a pretty picture? Exactly, video games are better than art, more than art. It’s an immersive experience!

So I’m ending this with the fact that this question is pretty much idiotic. The question “Is it art?” is a pretty messed up question. Anything that takes creativity or has an emotional impact on people can be some sort of art I think. It’s all about one’s perspective. What people like could be considered some form of art, but the “art” that people refer to is something like a famous painting. Like the Mona Lisa. Post some comments I want a discussion!
