Photorealism In Gaming As An Art Form

Art as an evolving form is changing across many platforms based on the need of the audience, perhaps the most seen form of modern art is within gaming as graphic development has moved extremely quickly over the past two decades or so - long gone are the square are triangle polygon based shapes in favour of high density textures that have become an artform of their own.

We’re moving in to a period of time where modern games are pushing many boundaries in terms of artistic design as we head into a period of photo and hyperrealism, looking at side by side images of games that were released even a few years ago shows a huge difference in aesthetic and many of the visual elements that are seen now have the potential to be examples in future to show just how far both technology and artistic ability have come - whilst many may be computer generated images, there are also a great number of recent additions which have been done by hand.

This is a form that will only continue to increase over time too across all platforms - many of the recent examples of what has been seen has been done on older hardware that is starting to push the limits but as we see changes in modern mobile devices and the next generation of consoles that are set to release later this year, things are looking promising for the way graphics will be developing over time. This of course extends to modern PCs which are doing a lot of the heavy lifting in progression here, and just as quickly as the other platforms are progressing so is this with the future of what’s possible across many markets is looking more incredible by the day.

As mentioned the next big change to be seen will probably be within our mobile devices - mobile gaming is the fastest growing market as more than 50% of all gaming is done on our smartphones but they are a little trapped in the past in terms of aesthetics, largely as hardware is trying to catch up to other platforms - but there’s now a lot more funding going in to mobile gaming which could help it close the gap. Of the most popular genres, mobile gambling is quickly rising to the top because of the changing audience and despite recent regulation and initiative changes to prevent many of these services from growing too big, these betting sites and casinos are still very populated and pulling in huge numbers.

It’s an exciting time as a whole if you’re a gamer to see the progression of how aesthetically pleasing these games are becoming, but even more so if you’re a fan of modern art as we move forward in to our digital age as much of what’s being created now could stand the test of time and be used as examples of key changes over the course of the digital age.
