    anything that is done with dedication and passion is art... so yes, video games are art... ^_^ so thinking that video games aren't art is almost good as saying that they're trash. Video game makers should be given more recognition as their work is not just a flick of a hand... ^_^

    Video game creation is art. It takes a lot of time and effort to make games a storyline has to be created along with character and landscape sketches, and graphics have to be developed.

    I would say yes, because it takes hard work to come out with something like that.

    Just because it is a platform for fighting, building, manipulation the characters it doesn't take away the fact that it is still art. For someone to create this digital landscape where people are able to explore and experience things in a third person perspective etc.

    I hope that made kind of sense.
    Yes, I agree with Dancy. Every game has graphical representations of characters, places, things. All these graphics are obvious forms of art.

    But also, there is art is the music, the videos, the story...all are characteristics of the arts.

    Ofcourse it is art!! Every single thing about video games are art!! Games are basically living art!! The characters are art that you can move and the background is literally artwork in some games (such as Chrono Cross, FF series, and so many others). Music is also art so all the BGM and sound effects in the games are art. The storyline is like a script to a play and that is also considered as art.(to me atleast)

    Re: Are Video Games Art?

    So far, I agree with all of you. There are some really good stories in video games. And what is art except the ability to use a certain medium to tell a story? Music tells stories, even when it doesn't have words. Video games have music. Storytelling is the oldest form of art, and most video games tell a story. Video games encompass music, cinematography, storytelling, and something else. Something new; the ability of the audience, the viewer, to participate and influence the finished piece of art. If you were to think about it, video games have the potential to become the highest form of art. I think that the people that say that video games can't be art are the same people that used to say that a comic couldn't be art. However, comics have been accept as an art form now (although they are often viewed as a lower art form).

    Thank you Sazuka for this awesome signature!

    You're a louse, Roger Smith.
