The Geek Link writes - Pretty much since day one, video games have been considered low-brow entertainment by critics, with gamers hearing the phrase, “Video games are not art” to the point of ad-nauseum. Obviously, I don’t have to tell you people how ridiculous this is. We all know how much time, effort, and skill goes into crafting a great video game, from the actors, mo-cappers, designers, artists (hey, there’s that word again!), and everyone else that contributes to making a great game, with the credits for a good game often crushing those of a film in terms of sheer numbers.
No, instead of doing that kind of list, I’m going to keep it a bit simpler and condense my list into three games I recently played and completed that are great examples in their individual ways of why games are definitely art.
