Yes a game should be considered art. But nowadays its only the actual "art" that we find in games, and that is the graphic design.

Otherwise games nowadays are pretty much scribbles by a child.

i agree with LM47 and SS89...it is subjective. personally i do think games like trainers r an artform. those who slog over thousands upon thousands of lines of code to create a visual experience or an emotional experience like games and to enjoy them better like trainers...that's a lot of hard work which in the end results in visual as well as an emotional experience..to me is an artform.

often makes me wonder: how do they do it?

Well such games are pretty rare now. The last decent game I played was Mass Effect 2.

yea..Mass Effect 2 was fantastic. as u said..i have to agree...i consider it an artform because it is a process of creation. u create something out of nothing..its an artform for me. yea..most times it might not turn out the way u expected or intended..but hey..no-one's perfect

Well then according to that definition we'd have to agree that most games that get good responses are art. After all most game designers seek to have their game liked by people, most of them succeed ergo they are art. Those that don't succeed to get the necessary emotion or sense in the buyers I think can be called bad art or faulty art as they failed to achieve their purpose as art.

When some creates a picture it is generally considered art right? So maybe a video game itself isn't art, but rather the contents within the game.

Based on that, any game that someone enjoys is art. That makes almost every game out there art. It's subjective as hell though, but then all forms of art are.

I don't really like that definition though. What is an "element"?

Drugs affect emotions, so does that make them art too? Sex toys affect your senses, is that art? If you want to take it to the extreme, serial killers have a physical and mental need to kill, they experience an extreme affect on their senses by killing. Does that mean killing is an art?
