If you think about the actual definition then you can say art is pretty much anything that comes from the creative mind.

A lot of video games today are about as artistic as Hollywood blockbusters.

95% of the time, you'll find the real works of art for <$15 on Steam and stuff.

How many times this question going to get asked. I swear its like every 6months to a year this question gets asked.

You should actually watch the video. There's more to it than the headline question.

Yes video games are art *sigh*

who cares
its an art form.

there are different forms of, movies, painting, sculptures, etc.
its like a bicycle transport? it has no engine like a car or motorbike, so can it really be used as a form of transport?

sometimes the answer is so simple that humans tend to over complicate it to look smart. FFS people.
