A little late to the "can video games be art" discussion, aren't we? By like 2 years!!

Haha I was late to the game actually. Heard of it as well as tried the demo but didnt play it until a few months back and regardless of how short this game is, its amazing. A lot of video games have an emotional aspect to them but Journey should be defined as an emotional rollercoaster. The title says it all.

Why are we still asking this? Yes video games can be art. Its called expressing ones self through a medium I.e music, dance.....VIDEO GAMES

Well of course video game enthusiasts like you and I feel that way.

The rest of the world? There's a long way to go.

Until the mainstream stops blaming video games for bad grades and mass shootings...there are still obviously a lot of people that need to think about this topic.

I don't get this phrase at all. Videogames are art regardless if they achieve some emotional or exploratory thing that changes the industry forever. Not everything has to be "artsy" or dive into some psychological themes to be considered art... Art can be fun too. I just don't get this.

I'd think it depends on your personal definition of art, but IMO every video game ever made is art.
