I understand that this is a joke thread, but all video games are not “art,” although some certainly are. Just as not all paintings are art, or all books or all music.

Art is not a competition. Art is not required to be fun. Art is expression of something more meaningful, whether that be personal or universal. But art is not a game.

Therefore, video games are not art. They borrow visuals, music, storytelling, and cinematics from other arts, but the games themselves are not art and can never be art.


Im new to the forums, someone please tell me this is a joke..
