Modern games and technology - an art form or not?

NEW YORK, NY.- As technology marching forward at a tremendous rate, new forms of art arise. New ways of expressing or deliver a message, a value or a feeling, has developed over the last couple of years. Video games and interactive casino games, alongside web design and other modern ways of reaching out to people is closing the gap to the more classic art forms - If you’re ready to accept modern technology as a new art form? The website Dreamz have created this content based on their view on this controversial topic.

Billions of people interact with this form of entertainment each day, and the number increases day by day. Due to this popularity among so many people, alongside new technology that expose your brain with mind blowing graphic designs that many modern games offer today, a new debate in the world of gaming and modern technology has evolved. If these kinds of products of modern technology could be called an art form or not. Could the design of a website be art? Video games? Interactive casino games?

Definition of Art
First, let’s take a closer look at the definition of art itself. If you ask 1000 people, you could get a different answer for each and everyone. Philosophers and artist through time have been struggling to define the true meaning of art and have various answer to the question as well.

If we have a look in the dictionary, we find following explanation; 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.

All in all, it seems like it’s a hard nut to crack, as there are so many correct (or wrong) answers, thus the ongoing debate. If we look at the definition that the dictionary offers, where the product of art is primarily based on the beauty or emotional power. Basically, the feeling the object, painting or performance gives the spectator. Even though video games have key focus on user experience, the visual aspects combined with the music is created to touch the soul of the user on many levels – to give the spectator or user an emotional journey outside the reality.

Art in modern technology is based on the same value as another art form. What really separate a painting with the visual art work in a game or website? Both is crafted with the aim to touch the spectator in one way in another.

Work of art in games and modern technology
If there’s something modern technology have evolved to, it’s to truly reach the heart of the spectator or the user. Playing a video game creates emotions on so many levels. New modern games have developed to state where the design, music and storytelling reach, or even beat, the quality of a motion picture.

So, the question is, why can’t this be classified as an art form. The design and graphic of a game, isn’t that art? In my opinion it’s as any other painting or sculpture. One difference between art and games, that the other side of the debate highlights (Roger Ebert), is that you can win a game. It often based on points and objectives – it has an outcome. Art should be experienced, not won.

I my mind, it’s just an extension of the experience of an art form. A new level of art itself.
