Have you ever thought of playing a work of art? Or are you playing the work of art? Yes, there is a valid correlation of art and video games. The Artists intend to express, and the designers intend to craft.
I believe that video games are proving to be one of the most influential means of art that humanity has ever had at its conclusion.
Technology has developed the canvas upon which artists can paint and tell their stories. Video Games are indeed collision of art and science that exist in the digital space. It combines many forms of traditional artistic expression in the form of illustrations, 3D modeling, dynamic music and a narrative arc to create something that excels in its type. This medium is growing faster than any other forms of art and will proceed to do so as the technology improves and cultural opinion shifts.
What I think is video games are also the only source of media that permits to personalize the artistic talent and practice by maintaining the authority of the artist. In a particular video game, you find three distinguished voices: the creator, the game, and the player. Those who are playing the game are bound to follow the story and the rules of the author but based on their choices the experience can be made entirely personal. So if you observe the work of another person and find a personal connection to it, then the art has been achieved!
Video games are a medium of today’s art. Writers draft story arcs and dialogue, composers create soundtracks and effects, programmers choreograph all the moving pieces into a seamless world, and artists create 2D images and 3D models. Thus, the video game created is a hodgepodge of art. The players react and act in the game, and there is a no other medium where the person experiencing it understands it so deeply that they use personal pronouns when describing their experience. No one has ever said that he has defeated someone after reading a book or watching a movie!
We are growing in a world where we can find an equal and meaningful relationship on both sides of the digital line. Video games are a natural progression of discovering our world, discovering each other, and finding ourselves.
