On the Value of Art (Gaming)

I’m curious. Do you think video games are art?

I think they can be, but I actually don’t think very many of them really clear that bar for me. I don’t think Destiny is. Most games certainly have artistic aspects, but very few are actual capital A Art.

I think that if I simply it down to the bare bones, yes, video games are (or at a minimum can be) art.

Perhaps the creator's intent needs to be considered as well? The bigger/more complex/more commercial games and movies get, the harder it is for me to define THE THING as art, versus PIECES OF THE THING as art.
