Kotaku: Brütal Legend Impressions: The Auteur's Art

If art is about the personal vision of the artist or an exclusionary experience that separates those who get it from those who don't, Brütal Legend is a game that gets to be art.

Set in a fantasy world that has nothing to do with Tolkien and everything to do with heavy metal bands and Frank Frazetta artwork, this action-adventure game is the latest creative endeavor of gaming auteur Tim Schafer. Schafer's games have always had a funky and distinctive style made up of snappy dialog, quirky characters and strange dreamlike environments.

Brütal Legend satisfies all three Schafer distinctions to qualify as the work of an auteur.
