The Art of Gaming

Ben Wright of GamersBliss.com Writes: "Video Games, when asked about them, most people would say that they’re nothing more than games for kids or for childish adults, but with The Last of Us releasing to wide critical acclaim for both its gameplay and story, Beyond: Two Souls with its star-studded cast as well as being featured at the Tribeca film festival, and the increase in story and artistically driven visuals across the spectrum, one is finding it increasingly difficult to write off video games as simple toys for children. From last year’s “L.A. Noire” by Rockstar Games and this year’s s “The Walking Dead” by Telltale Games, story and art has become an increasingly important part of gaming, but why is that?" (Culture)

Gaming is like a movie or a theater play you watch a movie 2hours or so and the experience is good for gaming you enter into it. you control and it takes you even deeper in experience to such a point your emotions (sometimes / most times)get involved example: halo; diablo; gears of war; assassins creed(to list a few)... once playing you feel the depth of who you're playing as its like truly been in a movie. the story takes you on a trip/journey you experience the highs and lows of the character. "saving private ryan" great movie right? "call of duty: modern warfare 3" great game which is a better experience?... decide on it
