Are Games Art?

Of course they are! This is the first time I have ever wanted to do a youtube video post, but this calls for it. As I was looking for art masterpieces around the web, I found this great "making of" artwork of The Legend of Zelda by the artist Ag+. Look at the video and tell me what you think of this greatness and if you don't like, comment about it too. Is good to always have debates from different stand points. If want the picture, here is the link.

If anyone of you have a gaming blog and want to do a review on this, do it! The works of people like this makes you think that there is still people out there that takes pride on the work and do this incredible works.

Wow this is amazing! I absolutely think that video games can be art. It's just a modern interactive art form. Everything evolves with new technology and artistic mediums are no exception.

games are the best art of all, in the future, art museums should become arcades!

I read a Roger Ebert column where he claimed video games were never art. It made me pretty mad.

Games are art, or at least composed of several forms of art (music, grapics, storylines etc.)
