10 Video Games That Are Basically a Work of Art

Making a video game isn’t an easy task. It takes a lot of knowledge, fantastic writers, designers, and tons of time. Games aren’t really something you should slap together at a moment’s notice, although some publishers aren’t afraid to do something like that. Those that do take their time create something wonderful that fans often love. Sure, we hate waiting as gamers, but it’s worth it in the end.

With that being said, there’s been a common debate about the video game industry – are video games art? Video games don’t hang in museums, but some of them definitely should. We’re talking about the Picassos, the Michelangelos, and the Caravaggios of the gaming world. These developers spend years perfecting every piece of their game for a stunning experience that pulls the gamer into their world. Hours can fly by, and the player wouldn’t even notice.

To those that say, “video games aren’t art,” I say that they clearly haven’t played many games. While there are tons of titles that could make this list, 10 stood out in particular. These are some of the most visually remarkable works of art that we could find. Let us know if we missed one of your favorites.
