Schofield: Modern Warfare 3 'is art'

Remember those 'video games are art' debates? Well, here's another title to take into consideration when the conversation rears its head again - and it's not quite the game you'd usually associate with such a discussion.

In the words of Sledgehammer boss Glen Schofield, Modern Warfare 3 "is art".

No....No it isn't

A game like Ico and the Shadow of the Colossus for example are art

MW3 is just a typical reskined FPS where the developers don't give a crap about the game, the presentation, the graphics, the story or even how it plays.....only their audiences money.

Hell even Gears of War 3 and Uncharted 3 could be considerd art more then MW3.

I am amazed there is no funny CoD-hater comment like:

"It's an art tricking people into buying the same product each year".

You BF-fans are getting bad at hating.

MmaFan-Qc2617d ago

if its art...

then... its highly aim assisted, repetitive, boring story and noobish gameplay plagued art.

KonGreat2617d ago

You don't have to be a bf fan to realize/say CoD is the same game every year..

"Hell even Gears of War 3 and Uncharted 3 could be considerd art more then MW3"??? Why because they are visually and graphically better? Google defines art as "The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture". MW3 has an approach that is different from others. Video game Art doesn't have to be so because of amazing graphics but the creative approach that has happened. MW has a style and in that theory can be defined at art.

Most people who study "art" wouldn't consider MW3 art in a million years.

In terms of pure artistic design, games like ICO/ Shadow, Okami, Uncharted 3 and Gears 3 have conscious unique art styles.

MW3 just looks as though they haven't made any effort to even consider art style - something that most game developers do. It looks foul because there is no apparent artistic expression!

"...where the developers don't give a crap about the game..."

That's just an ignorant statement. Would you like it if someone came up at your job and said "you're a lazy piece of crap" while you're busting your a**?

You don't know the life of a developer. Do you know that they often go days with little to no sleep just to meet the dead lines of the publisher?

iamnsuperman2617d ago

The disagrees pretty much sum up the attitude towards COD. Its sad. What you have said is right. The developers do care about their games and they try to develop a game within the parameters set out by the publishers (like any other developer).

Are movies art? yes.
Modern Warfare 3's campaign is art. It tells a story.

All video games with a story are art.(even some without)

He missed "f" at the beginning...

Not the good kind, it's like if Picasso just did the same painting or sculpture over and over....lame.

RedDead20672618d ago
