I’ve never really been interested in video games until recently. I use to think that they were a waste of time and didn’t do anyone any good. Lately though, I’ve been obsessed with playing the video game Halo along with other games and I’ve wondered whether people thought they were art or not. The idea that some people consider it art is relatable to myself. I personally believe that all video games are, in some way or another, art. However, there have been debates on whether or not people should consider video games a work of art. They might argue that games shouldn’t be art if, in the same sense, magazines and other similar objects have alike qualities such as visual elements and because they have such elements does not make it art. I would argue that the characters, the story, and everything else that people had to put thought into is considered art. Someone is expressing their ideas in the same way that an artist would; only difference is that the person expresses it through a video game instead of on paper. Just because someone else doesn’t like it, doesn’t mean that it’s not art.
