Okay, here we go: what we call art is, I should argue, a creative, human endeavor which's only purpose is aesthetic admiration. By this decree, it is obvious that the only way to qualify art is through aesthetic means (how much intellectual and emotional pleasure one can receive from it). If we take this definition of art, anything can be art as long as a human being makes it. This is obviously a faulty definition, because the word becomes almost totally vacuous and obsolete.

So, the next definition, most commonly used, is: a creative, human endeavor which's only aim is a high degree of aesthetic quality. By this decree, only objects (or performances in music or acting) that give way to a considerably high amount of intellectual and emotional stimulation would be considered art. In that sense, it is easy to comprehend that many good books, movies or pieces of music are art, whilst popular fiction, blockbuster movies and pop music (think Justin Bieber) would normally be deemed only entertainment.

A creative activity can then be considered an art form if it allows its products to be of a high aesthetic quality. The only way to verify this is to see whether the activity's "medium specificity" naturally allows for it.

Video games contain extreme beauty and interesting stories at times, but we can still not call them "art". The stories are a separate art form themselves (intrisically found and specific to movies and language (literature)), the graphic beauty also (visual art) and ditto for musical pieces (intrinsic to music).

Being a game, a video game's medium specificity is play (or interactivity). This activity possess no beauty whatsoever. If it did, we would call poker, chess, and pool as art forms. They are not, they are games.

Video games however are a hodgepodge of artistic and non-artistic activities. But the natural core of them are non-artistic.

Thus, video games contain aesthetic elements but are not intrinsically art.

If you're actually interested I could try to explain to you why games are intrinsically non-artistic via the means of logical discourse and argument. Would you want me to?

It's okay, I'm not offended at all. I even believe being offended at any statement is stupid.

I thought you were referring to the fact I said video games weren't art, and called that an opinion.
User avatar #127 - imposand (01/05/2014) [-]
Well many people out there would want to have a word with you about that. I mean some folks disregard evolution, right? So maybe you (and a lot of people) are wrong maybe the others are. I'm pretty curious about the whole art thing to be honest. As in: Will it change the acceptance of the medium or the medium itself? If it's going to be considered art that is. I'm not leaning towards either of the two ways of thinking though. I could say "as a gamer..." but in reality that's 2deep4me so I'll just wait and see.

I think the trick with MLP oblivioning is that the fanbase, or at least part of the fanbase, is trying hard as balls to stick their hobby down everyone else's throats. In the few months I've been here in the FJ community, I've not seen the same behaviour with CoD fans at all.

Its just that its another site/forum/board.

I think its the same as if there was a picture on lets say Imgur which said "Welcome to Funnyjunk"

Its just misplaced
User avatar #63 - zight (09/25/2013) [-]
you are really bad at interpreting stuff aren't you
#60 - fukkendragonite (09/25/2013) [-]
No, the humour of the gif does not rely on it being posted on /fit/. It does not imply that we are on /fit/. It's not even sincerely welcoming you to /fit/. If a picture saying welcome to funnyjunk was posted on imgur, and the picture was some sort of joke pointing at thumbwhores or rollfags or something that is particularly FJ-esque. it's not misplaced.

The joke is on people using /fit/ not the person watching the gif
