ROTT was awesome. Ludicrous Gibs! Also best error code in a game.

Reminds me of that clip where Civvie accidentally pushes one of those giant spiders out through the wall and outside the bounds of the level.

ROTT, now there is an often overlooked, under appreciated game!

Are movies art? Are tv shows art? Are plays art? The biggest difference between those items that one would traditionally call art and video games is the player themselves having an active role in the experience more so than the other formats. Not all video games are worthy of being called art, but they are just as culturally relevant now as traditional works of art.

The tune to SMB, for example, is almost on the same level in our culture as Beethoven's 5th. Let's Plays exist for most games these days and wouldn't get the views they do without considering their artistic nature. And Speed-running (tool assisted or not) is like watching a master painter creating a new work of art. I cried at Aeris' death in FF7. If video games can instill in us the same emotions as art, then they are art.

So as a whole, I would say that yes the medium of video games is an art, but it is more than that.

If none of that works for you, then I leave you with one game that I would say indisputably on its own makes video games an art: Minecraft.
