Let’s get straight to the point: video games, like any creative medium that requires creative input from the maker, can be art. But why are we still discussing this? Based on that previous statement, video games should already be art, but why don’t a great number of people think so? The answer: a lot of games aren’t accessible to people. Let me elaborate: anyone can read a book, right? We were forced into learning this skill since we were born. Likewise, anyone can watch TV, movies, or look at a piece of artwork. But not anyone can play video games.
