Why Video Games Will Never Be Form of Art

NEW YORK, NY.- While there are people who consider video games such as Boomtown Bingo Games to be an art form, it is still a relatively controversial subject. Currently, video games are protected by authorities as creative works of art. But one of the famous film critics continues to disagree with it, however, pressing the facts might be.

Video Games vs Art
Kellee Santiago, a game designer goes on to explain why she does not consider video games a piece of art. Art has developed from being just cave paintings to ceiling in the Sistine Chapel painted by Michelangelo. They had the creativity of the artist behind it. Meanwhile, video games have developed from being simulations of already known games like Chess to something much more. Mr Ebert doesn't understand the thought process and the creativity that goes behind a video game creation. For a video game to be a success it needs to connect to the player.

Super Mario Bros
Super Mario Bros is an ideal example. Shigeru Miyamoto, the brains behind the video game has created a classic character, that has successfully been in the market for more than three decades. This also means that he has managed to create a game franchise that has lasted for more than one generation.

Video games are an emotional experience
Not all games are aimed at creating an emotional experience. There are video games that are created just for mindless entertainment. An example here is the Call of Duty video game. This famous game makes money off the multi-player gaming. As technology advances, gaming also evolves. Every game nowadays comes with exclusive artwork, a strong storyline and soundtrack to match. With all these tools in hand, the artists behind the video game work to compel the player to connect emotionally with the characters in the game. Due to this, the games have gone beyond playing and winning to having an emotional experience. An example is the Final Fantasy XIII where you are required to form a bond with characters. Whatever happened to them would affect you since you are the person who put them through it by your choice.

The process of a video game development
When you buy a video game, the first thing that attracts the player to the game is visual effects. Visually it needs to pull the player into the game. Before it goes for development, the artwork needs to be created and finalized for every part of the game. The concept art for the game including the protagonist, the enemy and the environment is created and rendered into 3D models. Another important element is the characters and the storyline. The storyline in a video game is as important as in a film. The story is what helps the player connect with the video game. It needs to be interesting and captivating and having an underlying theme helps your cause. The final part that finishes the bond between the game and the player is the soundtrack. The music in the video game can stir up so many feelings in the player. Be it sorrow or elation or fear, it adds to the video game experience.

If all this doesn't make it an art, then what does. A good art connects with the viewer evoking feelings and helps them come into peace with it. A good video game does the same. Some of the top UK bingo sites provide entertaining online games that keep players engaged throughout the gameplay. Happy gaming!
