Video Games: The Eighth Art Form

Video Games are an art form. I am not the first person to think, say or type this statement. Stephen Totilo has called video games the fourth medium. I’m pilfering this blog’s name from a presentation Dennis Dyack gave at Brock University entitled “Video Games: The Eighth Art.” We can argue about graphics, design choices and features, but when we can have emotional experiences with a controller in our hands, there is no argument. Games are art.
