Can Games Be Art? Yes and Stop Asking…

This is an interesting take on the question, can video games be art?

What I do know is that if we believe that video games are art, it is vitally important that we immediately cease discussion of this topic.

Games are art, and the sky is blue, and Austria is a country in Europe, and koalas have a vegetarian diet, and pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. To debate games as art is to suggest that the question is worthy of debate. It is not.

The people who claim that games are not art have not played games that have spoken to them as art. Their opinions stem from a lack of experience with games. It is not our job to refute them!

I like the approach. By asking the questions you open the door for the answer to be now. By just getting on which it and focusing on making amazing games, we can make art in the process. So there.
