You know the museum of Modern art opened up a Video Game Section?

Games have become an Artform.

Don't believe me? 3 titles:

Bioshock
Red Dead Redemption
American Mcgee's Alice

**** bioshock, Journey and Flower (?) are better examples of the "Games are art" thing.
I didn't mean it bioshock I still love you.

They're a combination of Images, Video, and Music as well as other media, brought together in a package that's both nice to look at, nice to listen to and great to play.

So tell me again without sounding like a moron how this isn't art. Because you can't. It doesn't matter how right you think you are, because you're still and always will be, wrong.
#90 to #60 - Womens Study Major (04/18/2013) [-]
It was created using a computer program, not by an artist. The computer renders the graphics and **** , the programmer just types **** in. Really doesn't take that much talent to type stuff... it doesn't belong in the same museum that houses beautiful paintings and sculptures. It's a disgrace.
#127 to #90 - qubot (04/19/2013) [-]
you can make music and pictures on a computer using programs, is that still art?   
and making a video game is not easy, you may think its just typing but there's a lot of though and time put into them, and entering computer code isn't easy. I feel that video games allow people to interact and experience it on their own making their own connections and their own experiences as they play. that is what are does.

you sir are wrong. Art makes you feel something and makes you connect to what you are seeing and hearing. you are very ignorant if you prospective of art is just paintings and music, it comes in many other forms such as dance, and yes in this case video games.   
With new technology video game designers have the ability to make something truly miraculous and moving using their imaginations, just like artists.

Art-1.The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture 2.Works produced by such skill and imagination.

#114 to #103 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
HUMAN, not COMPUTER. The human doesn't make the amazing graphics, that's the computer.
#148 to #114 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
HUMANS make the designs on the COMPUTER. What you think the computer is able to think like that and make those on its own?
#163 to #148 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
The human has the idea and the computer actually makes it. I can think of a painting but if I can't make it myself it's useless. It's basically like thinking of what to paint than going to another artist to actually make it for you. It was your idea, but the other person actually made it come to life.
#131 to #114 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
So you mean to tell me this isn't art?
#164 to #131 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
That's exactly what i'm saying. That is not art. That's a computer generated image, that's all.
User avatar #166 to #164 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
That image was drawn and painted, you friggin moron.
#134 to #131 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]

You have people working on the characters, environments, etc...VIA DRAWING. bro do you even Concept art?
#165 to #121 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
They sketch a little ****** doodle then program a computer to make their ****** doodle come to life. **** , I can doodle myself. The computer makes it into something that looks good.
User avatar #168 to #165 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
Ok, so what makes that any diffrerent than picasso using a canvas? Do you consider movies art? If so, then what makes it different from video games being art?
#174 to #168 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
I do not consider movies art. And there's no undo button on a canvas... you can't undo paint.
User avatar #178 to #174 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
yes there is...if an artist makes a mistake, they paint over it, it's the same thing, except one's modern, and the other one's primitive.
#179 to #178 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
Also the fact that painting a picture actually takes talent and not just a computer program.
User avatar #180 to #179 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
Both take talent, you ignorant smew. Have you even played any of the newer games for this generation?
#181 to #180 - Womens Study Major (04/20/2013) [-]
I'm really not a gamer at all. I don't own any system but I play a few at friends houses. They're computer generated graphics, I don't see what the big deal is...
User avatar #184 to #181 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/20/2013) [-]
The big deal isn't about the graphics...it's about the story, the gameplay, the features. and yes there are companies who just go in and crap out sequel after sequel (CoD), but those games? they aren't considered art. it's games that actually have a compelling story, incredible environments, and kick-ass gameplay that are considered art. It's digital art, it has to have precision just like a painting, but interactive.
#186 to #184 - Womens Study Major (04/20/2013) [-]
That's not ******* art. Books don't belong in museums. Game play has nothing to do with art. Video games aren't art and they never will be. How the **** is a video game going to be next to a Picasso painting? It doesn't belong. They have the music hall of fame which is basically a museum for music, open up a video game hall of fame. That's fine. Just don't house a video game in the same building as real art.
User avatar #187 to #186 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/20/2013) [-]
Yes, it is art.

What makes you think that someone using a computer to produce games can't be considered an artist? Isn't it just a different method of creating art? Some people pain, others draw, but very few make amazing video games, and I'm not just talking about graphics. Braid has an amazing story, without being all about how the game looks. And Oblivion had an amazing music score. Video Games are just a way people can make their art interactive. That is how I think of it anyway.
#115 to #94 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
The difference is when someone paints, the human is painting. When they make the good graphics, it's the computer making the graphics. The human is just typing in **** , no real artistic talent.
User avatar #158 to #115 - qubot (04/19/2013) [-]
actually not the computer is displaying the models as the person crafts and sculpts the character and environments. the computer is measly a tool used my the makers to generate their works of art. that's why video games have art directors.
#167 to #158 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
The real world doesn't have an undo button when an artist makes a mistake. Not with a pencil, with paint or something permanent.
User avatar #170 to #167 - huntergriff ONLINE (04/19/2013) [-]
It's called painting over it.
#116 to #115 - missjessicaparker (04/19/2013) [-]
So you are saying that a human didn't produce the story that comes from the game? Or that people didn't make the music that goes into the games? I can see where you are coming from with the good graphics argument, and it is a decent point, but there are so many more aspects to a game than how the game looks.
#175 to #116 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
Music and stories aren't art...
#169 to #116 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
Oh wow so now books belong in museums? AND songs?! wow...
#173 to #169 - missjessicaparker (04/19/2013) [-]
No intelligent counter-argument? I'm disappointed.
#176 to #173 - Womens Study Major (04/19/2013) [-]
How is that not a good counter-argument? Books and music don't belong in art museums... they have a separate music hall of fame which is basically a music museum. Keep it there. Make a separate video game museum to put the games in, that's fine.
#99 to #94 - missjessicaparker (04/18/2013) [-]
Adding on to that, it is true that not all game companies are making video games because it is their passion or they want people to play a good game and enjoy themselves, but only because these companies want to make money. I'm talking about companies like E.A. So, even though I still consider it an art form, some video games can be not very good art. Like if someone splattered black paint on a canvas and tried to sell it for a million dollars.

It's more entertaining than a movie, because you the player are making the story.

Bioshock and Red Dead Redemption proved how powerful a game can be.
