For years, within many articles this debate has existed, many favored that it could be considered art as many opposed to the statement.
In my opinion, it can be considered art indeed. You see, video games aren't just something that you smash as win as some people view it as, as a matter of fact, anything that you can have visual contact with could be consider a piece of art. Not to mention in video games, we always have beautiful scenery in many games especially nowadays. Now we have characters, both 3D model ones and sprites such as great ones as Uncharted 2 or sprite 2D Fighter BlazBlue, or better yet..Final Fantasy XIII? How can these beautiful made games cannot be consider art? CGI are consider one, but why not video games? Only differences are is that you control the characters. People are forgetting that video games also include music, and mixed with the particular scenario it could end up being a masterpiece, and with a nice story it could transcend that. If a film could be consider an art, so should video games.
What are your thoughts on this topic, why can video games be considered art or why can they not be art?
