If you don't know already, Video Games include graphics and most of the time include some kind of music, I may be wrong about this but I am PRETTY sure that music is an art, a fine art, and to make those graphics they need art otherwise the term "graphics" wouldn't necessarily exist
The definition of art is "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination". Are you saying that video games aren't the expression of the creators imagination? If not, then what are they? They need to design, draw and create entire WORLDS for a game, but your saying that this https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/9f/e3/0d/9fe30dd70848297d6de3ccc0ee474128.jpg is? Don't know about you, but the Smithsonian thinks games are art as well.

If you haven't seen Bethesda's Elder Scroll games (Oblivion & Skyrim) then you need to take a close look at them. The scenery in both games is magnificent and very realistic. At 52 years old I never thought that I would find myself playing video games but I play them often. The artistic nature of many of these games is part of the draw for me.
Video games are an art in which consist of electrical components that could only be experienced through video games. Video games are kind of like books (with plots). There is the protagonist and there is the antagonist of which whose role is to hinder the protagonist in way they can. Video games for a visual representation of what one thinks and it expresses the depths of the imagination and creative skills, for making a "good" video game isn't easy in the least.
A great of example of this is no doubt Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, While Kojima himself said games can't be art.
Another is Arkane's Dishonored, both games have amazing stories,audios and visuals and this is what makes them art in my opinion, this will be even more obvious in the future
Of course art is subjective to some people, but you'd only have to look at a video game (not even necessarily play it) to see that it's art. There's a lot of work that goes into the story line and more than that the graphics are getting progressively more beautiful. If that's not artistic, I dont know what is.
Art is what helped Noah create the Ark to survive the flood in the Old Testament. Yes, he was commanded by God, but that was all God did- command Noah. It was art that helped him to create the giant boat and carry the animals of earth to safety. The same goes for video games- the writing, drawing of concepts, voice acting- they are all a type of art. People pursue these careers because they want to use their skills in something they enjoy, which is art.
The question has been asked for centuries: what is art? Many definitions have been proposed and many counter-arguments put forward. However, it is widely accepted that only the mind's perception can create beauty: the information about something is given to the brain, which processes it and then decides what it is. Therefore, art is anything that at least one mind calls art. Since many people think of computer games as art, computer games are art. Art is not the thing itself, but what the mind thinks of it.
They incorporate sound, cinematics, narrative and story in one multimedia package and the definition of art according to the Marry-Ann Webbster Dictionary is "one multimedia package." I would argue that video games are actually a higher form of art than any other medium because it again incorporates so much and demand's the user's interaction which makes it that much more unique and engaging.
Seriously? 100%? I mean come on. It is just another form of media.You hear about your favourite actors, directors, musicians, etc. but that doesn't make them artists. I did art when I went to middle school, and believe me, THAT was real art. We did drawings and sketches, etc. Children these days are lazy and trying to justify playing video games. I hope my grandson will not fall for these silly habits!
