Games As Art
After viewing an interview with George R.R. Martin from a few years ago, who didn’t think games were quite there yet in terms of being a new art form, I decided I wanted to talk on the subject. Of course, he is old at this point, but it’s still something many outside of the gaming world still seem to think. Roger Ebert being, of course, the classic example of someone who felt games couldn’t be art.
So, I decided to go through some games I felt exemplified games as an art form, and why:
0:00 – Intro
4:03 – Braid
9:41 – Nier: Automata
12:30 – Shadow of the Colossus
15:02 – Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
17:06 – Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
19:11 – Journey
21:08 – Bioshock
23:30 – Doki Doki Literature Club
24:59 – Dark Souls
29:10 – Lisa: The Painful RPG
31:15 – Outro
Should I have gone with a stupid YouTube title like: “10 games YOU DIDN’T KNOW WERE ART?!” Eh. Whatever.
