Roger Ebert has passed at the age of 70. Now, I ask, how much does the above statement (the threads title) matter. I mean, no one was able to convince him otherwise. But, we here are all aware that to make a good game, you need good artists with a good vision. Comments?
R.I.P Whoever you were. I consider them art. Deal with it
- yoshis island
- Vib Riboon
- Zelda Wind Waker
- Muramasa Demon Blade
- Shadow of Colossus
These games to me are playable art.
Games have art in it in many forms, just because it isn't painted or sculpted doesn't make it not art.
Not to mention his craptastic reviews. It makes no difference really.
Games are not just art. They are the amalgamation of all art forms put together, plus software development practices.
Game design by itself is certainly art, and one unique to games, but only a part of what makes a modern game.
