Video Games Are Art!

Not only are games totally sweet, so much fun to play and engrossing, they are and will become a greater part of interactivity in life, seriously; your ass may be missing out.

This is an awesome short 7min documentary on the artistic merits of video games. I’m totally loving hearing all of this, but people who are less enthusiastic about games might benefit more from watching:

Video games are important. They are a storytelling medium, a place for self-expression, a sandbox for the human imagination, and an extension of an ages old tradition of gaming.

We play out some of the most essential aspects of our culture in games, and we learn more about ourselves and the world around us in the process. From the powerful cinematic experiences of mainstream gaming, to the hyper-personal environments of indie games, we are in the midst of an explosion of gaming activity that, as some predict, will continue to define the way we live and interact with information, and each other, far into the future.

…More More More Want More!
