Lol that playing games = not having a life. Drinking wine watching netflix until you fall asleep every night isn't a life either.

My mum only plays lego games and tells me video games are mindless fun that doesn't teach you anything, and that one should read books insted. I respond with: “Oh ok, so 50 shades of grey is a genuine masterpiece of literature and a real gem for mind and soul as it deeply engulfs the reader in deep philosophical controversies? Mum, just because you haven't played good games that doesn't mean that there are none.“ (Lego games are really not what they used to be...)

I play video games primarily because tv sucks these days and movies are almost as bad. I don’t care what my family says. I’m a gamer at heart. It’s my brother’s fault for exposing me to games in the first place.

I have to say my little brother had trouble at school making friends and our family was really worried he played far too many games to make any. Until we realised he had half a dozen friends he spoke to everyday. All online but still. We were scared he was lonely yet he had a better social life than most of us.

Here’s another two my actual mother use to say: “Videogames will rot your brain” -If this is true, then how come I learned proper english with them. Also, I am more creative thanks to those. “Videogames will damage your eyes” -If that is true, then you should stop watching movies and soap operas then.

The points about games being art or not was marvelous. I've been annoyed by this discussion for years. "Art" is not an evaluative term. And who cares? Games exist, and should be appreciated as such without trying to lend them credence by applying false labels. Nicely done.

It's funny when you realise things are going to get interesting once our generation gets to retirement age. Care homes and retirement villages are going to become hubs for gaming tournaments. I've decided I'll go into either willingly if they get a giant tv, the latest console and a high spec laptop to keep me company, haha.

Video games dont have to be considered art to be valid but video games are at least 3 diffrent types of art together
I'm a gamer and l love it and I will still gamer for ever 😤😁😌

I hate going to a friend's house and they just want to sit there and watch a movie. I generally check out and head home. Video games are so much more interactive than passively watching a movie.

The only problem with this video is that most people watching it are gamers. It would be nice if non gamers watched this but I doubt very many would unless a gamer showed it to them.

Art is creative expression. You telling me that video games arent a creative expression of the team that made it? I have to walk past an old pier every day that's has been torn down and rejigged into a spiral... I get told that rubbish is art all the time. If that pile of rotting wood and rusted metal is art then the masterpieces like the Witcher 3 the original bioshock or horizon zero dawn have to be. These titles represent the creation of a cohesive world that doesn't just tell the story of its characters but world its self tells a story just by walking through it. I've never been all that worried about graphics it's the world that's created that amazes me it's like JRR Tolkien books its not the story so much as a person's creativity literally birthing a world.

you forgot "video games are for boys" luckily my parents never thought this and my brothers and i all shared a console but whenever i walk into a gamestop i get stared at by the customers (the employees know me and are always very nice and don't care) because i'm a female. why do people think that because of the gender i was born i can't enjoy something?

The most horrible thing is that none of these criteria are ever used against other forms of entertainment. We've accepted watching sport for hours as entertainment, but that isn't art, doesn't teach, requires no imagination, and by tournament definition must be the same thing every time... Books are not social, and often teach as little as tv and games do... Just lay off, I don't needlessly criticize your obsession with sitting by a lake for hours waiting for an undersized carp to bite!

Thank you so much for this Rob!!! The misconceptions get harder to bear and more insulting when you are female, married and have kids. Its like a dirty little secret I have to keep around other moms, or just blame it all on my husband whenever I have guests over and they notice the two ps4's, the two xbox 360's and so on.... ugh..

video games are not art they are a museum full of it
Paul Davidson (5 months ago)
I really loved your interpretation about whether games are art or not. I have always considered them art, from Final Fantasy to Conkers Bad Fur Day to Shadow of the Colossus to Halo to The Last of Us to the classics, Super Mario and Zelda and the like. Not every single game has to be incredibly poignant, be deeply introspective, or even totally thought provoking. They are interpretations of someone's imagination, given to a format which is just as unique as books are unique, movies are unique, paintings are unique, weavings are unique, carpentry, masonry, literally every art form is unique. They have crafted something using their imagination to express someting to the world, whether it be emotionall, or cerebral, or psychological, or visual, or something simply primal. Obviously, not every expression of any given form is amazing, great, good, or even ok. But that freedom of expression is key, and that is one of humanity's true few talents; making jumbled thoughts into coherent means with which to communicate in important and usually unexpected ways

Video games make you violent. They've actually made me less violent as I've been able to take out my anger on enemies by imagining that they have John Duffy's face. If it weren't for video games, I probably would've slaughtered my classroom by now.

Ok: wait. Video games need to be legally considered art, so that they can’t be censored like other non-art things.

I started gameing in the early 80's with the atari. Now i'm 45 and i still love to play videogames. I let my kids play in another room with games that don't have the m rating. Yeah i'm strict but i'll let them play the mature games when they are 15, so in some ways i break the rules lol. My wife tried to play games but she had trouble decades ago trying to get past 1-1 in super mario brothers. She will watch me and the kids play and try to give pointers.....and i thought backseat drivers were anoying.

Yeah they teach you something to degree but it's you who have to research if you're interested in it. Persona 3 introduced me to taroth and the many legends the various persona have. It also gave a interesting insight to phycological make up of a human. Heck even gamers found a cure for a desease many professional doctors have been searching for years in a desease puzzle game and it only took the guy 3 minutes. Point is games initialize the curiosity of the human phyche to know more of it.

My dad has all these misconceptions especially the anti social one and is anti-gaming. He blames video games for the fact that Im an introvert and have only a few close friends as opposed to being the popular extrovert that my party loving non-gaming brother is. I also had to secretly buy all my gaming consoles and make sure he never found out. He still thinks I play the PS2 he got me when I was 10 as an exception, and that was 15 years ago. He doesn't know I have a vita, ps4 and a bunch of Nintendo handhelds stashed away in my room despite having them for years.

Eh when you're not a fan of online gaming due to racism, homophobia, sexism and trolls then i'd say yes they're quite anti-social. Also for 7, I learned a lot of large words from reading all those jrpgs back in the day. Lexicon upgraded! Solid essay mate.

I've seen a lot of videos like this but this one actually said something new in terms of the imagination and the art.
