Are there any Video Games you would consider to be Art?

What do you think?

These two games stand out the most for me in this category, how about you?

  • I would say that most of them are technically art, since they require artists and writers analogous to the way that animated movies do. The ones that I personally always think of as art, though, are the computer adventure-genre games in the 90s.

    My personal favorites are the the "Quest for Glory" and "King's Quest" series, made by Sierra, like:

    King's Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow

    Quest for Glory V: Dragon Fire

    And the Indiana Jones adventure games made by LucasArts:

    And the series "The Journeyman Project" by Presto Studios:

    The reason why I mention adventure games is that, by the nature of the adventure genre, they are more often story-driven than other game genres (although not always). And since novels and movies are storytelling mediums, and literature and cinema are considered art forms, games should be too, in my opinion. Just as books and movies have their own strengths and limitations as storytelling mediums, so too do games have their own strengths and limitations for storytelling that are unique from movies and books. There are things that games can do in terms of storytelling that books and movies just can't.

    Plus, all the particular games I mentioned have great and memorable music that I still remember all these years later. xD

    • I also forgot to mention that the PC game "Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis" is a WAY better story --- and much more true to what an Indy story should be --- than whatever the heck Spielberg and Lucas's last movie "Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" turned out to be, LOL. If Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is considered "made by artists", then the game Fate of Atlantis should DEFINITELY be considered a work of artists. xD

  • There's many games that can be considered art.
    Video games are a form of art.
    The Witcher 3 and Uncharted 4 are pure art, and that's just 2 games, and from this gen, if I talked about previous gens I would need a Take.

  • I honestly think most video games would qualify as art.

    If I had to pick one example I guess I'd go with skyrim.

  • Games are so beautiful man. I for real feel bad for people who can't appreciate the beauty behind them.
