If you are a video game enthusiast like myself, your first thought reading this title was probably… “Of course, it is moron!” Best believe I’m on your side but that’s not the end of the conversation. There is a large pocket of people that after 40 years of evolution can’t seem to wrap their heads around a video game being “art”. Why is this? It’s not just older people either. You have people that grew up in my generation that think the medium could never be art. So, what I’m going to do is explain why video games are not only art but have been ever since their inception into our society.
