Videogame Art

‘Making games combines everything that’s hard about building a bridge with everything that’s hard about composing opera. Games are operas made out of bridges.’ – Franz Lantz, ‘Hearts and minds’

Videogames have developed so much over the years. But are they capable enough of having artistic merit? OF COURSE THEY ARE! They include many forms of traditional artistic expression from initial ideas in notebooks to sketching, sculpture in the form of 3D modeling, illustration, narrative structure, and music. All of which, combine to create something that anyone can truly sit and enjoy, either playing or watching!

Video game art is very important in that, it is living history of how technology has developed. This blog is only highlighting a few games where the visuals are simply breathtaking. So in no particular order please do enjoy discovering the wonderful world of game art.
