• There are some video games out there that are simply gorgeous.

    The level of detail some developers put into their games is astonishing, and they are beautiful to look at. The definition of art is something that is created with imagination and skill and that is beautiful or that expresses important ideas or feelings. : works created by artists : paintings, sculptures, etc., that are created to be beautiful or to express important ideas or feelings. There are a lot of games that are made with imagination, skill and are very beautiful. There are also some maps that have been designed to express certain ideas and feelings to the player through the way they have been made. Note as well that the people who make models and textures and things for games are called "artists" for they made the "art" for the game. Just because it's not some painting of a woman smiling, doesn't mean video games can't be art.

  • Why not ?

    The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power.
    "the art of the Renaissance"
    synonyms: fine art, artwork
    "he studied art"
    The various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance.
    "the visual arts"

    Designing a video game is a creative process. So yeah. It's art.

  • Games contain to art in itself.

    If I say 'Football is art' today, of course in my opinion we can say 'games can be art'. The idea is as the same as theatre, cinema, animation. Because artists made their show at cinema or theatre like and we the people enjoy it. It is as the same as games.

    Cinema also contain film producers, mechanic technic details. Games also contain to ones. Therefore we say 'cinema' the name of cinema. But Cinema is art as well as great art. Because there is populer woman and man artists and there is very important animational artist (as computer artist). In my opinion same stuation. For instance Today very populer a woman artist or football player is front of camera. But very important animation maker or designers behind the scenes. In my opinion in both cases is the same.

    In the manner, If we say 'cinema is art', we can say 'games can be art' of course.

  • Games are not art itself

    Games have artwork, but that is just one of its many components. Some games out there have no art at all, and others have plagiarized. It's like saying should choclate cake be considered as chocolate, even though it has many other ingredients. Games are not art, they are products of programming. That way construction, programming, farming, banking and many other things should be considered art due to their complexity. Sadly, the only things considered as art are still paintings and sculptures.

  • An art tour,

    At best. Computer/video game often have artistic aspects to them. For instance there is scenery and backgrounds that cold be seen as 2D/3D works of art. Many/most also include music so this is another type of art involved. Many include characters that you interact with so these would be examples of performance art (acting). Thing is, just because something contains art does not mean that it is an art it'self.
    You see, art is intentional, not random. Computer/video games are designed to have people/characters move through them to observe and appreciate the different works of art. Seeing that that their path is not intentional by the creators of the art work, yet is an important part of the game, the game itself is not art but just a tour through various themed works of art.
