Although this type of art isn’t usually featured in art galleries or in the classic books people read, there is no denying that video game art is important to many people in the modern world. In fact, it can be the difference between a good game and a great one.

Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but visually pleasing games tend to dominate the conversation in the gaming world. Some video game art focuses on a strong theme throughout, while others jump between various themes as the game progresses. Likewise, killing robots are prominent, flesh-eating zombies are spookily accurate, glorious backdrops are pleasing, and a whole lot more. Essentially, video game art is hugely important to gaming communities.

Video game art can also be unique to a particular style of game, too. For example, sports games tend to offer real-life stadiums and players that aim to replicate sport in real life. Likewise, combat-focused games tend to feature similarities in terms of the video game art on show, be it the blood on a fighter’s face or the graffiti on the walls. Even when assessing casino slot games, themed creations, such as the legendary collection of Age of Gods slots, offer a strong Greek mythology theme thanks to the immense detail that goes into creating the gods in games, while other inclusions add more to the game’s theme, be it the weapons they possess or the ancient backdrops. Ultimately, video game art is key when it comes to the success of a game’s particular feel. If video game art isn’t up to scratch, gaming communities will certainly let the makers of products know about it, too.

With some impressive examples of video game art in recent times, let’s take a look at some top gaming products and the art they possess below.

Elden Ring was lauded for its impressive art

One of the most popular games right now, Elden Ring’s pleasurable gaming package is largely down to the glorious artwork that is on show throughout. From the colossal golden trees to the crumbling ruins that are so prominently featured in this hit PlayStation 5 game, the visual experience that is on offer in this particular game is certainly pleasing. Even the inclusion of rivers and underground forests are in a beautifully unique style, while the characters and the weapons they boast are impressively detailed. A game that is packed full of detail, wherever Elden Ring takes you, you’ll be exposed to glorious art styles that have clearly contributed to the success of this hit release.

While newer releases are also offering gamers plenty of art to enjoy, sometimes more unique offerings tend to stand out even further. This certainly applies to Okami, a colorful masterpiece that offers gamers with a Japanese ink-wash painting art style that certainly gives the game some originality. For people who enjoy Japanese art, in particular, this creation is an undoubted success, with everything from the character’s movements during battles to the pretty plants that are featured throughout helping to add to the game’s likable theme.

Psychonauts 2 focuses on surrealism

A game that certainly thrives on surrealism, Psychonauts 2 serves up some of the most appealing video game art ever. With no two areas looking the same and the art constantly changing around gamers as they progress through the game, this ever-changing product clearly nailed its aim of finding magic and strange beauty in an unusual or unconventional setting. For people who played the game, the quirky art style helped make Psychonauts 2 what it is.
