20 Most Powerful Images In Gaming [VIDEO]

Still think video games aren't art?

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x24om7p_20-most-powerful-images-in-gaming_videogames It's a sad reality that some people still don't see games as an art form. There are those out there that don't count it alongside film, art or literature, but it would be a lie to say that gaming doesn't have just as much (if not more) of an impact on it's audience as those mediums. Just like we get all starry eyed when we remember our first book or cinema experience, if you were to ask any gamer about that first time they picked up a controller - they'd be able to tell you when it was, what it was and where they were, they'll remember all the little details - not just about the game, but about their life at the time. It's a defining moment for many of us. Gaming can and does affect people on a personal level. By that alone, it is a form of art. Given the sheer amount of interaction that the medium of gaming demands €“ it goes beyond the realms of conventional art. By choosing to play a game, we're choosing to immerse ourselves in narrative, we're buying into a world, and we're being led to take part in an experience that has been carefully crafted for us. We may spend hundreds of hours within a game, but it's no different from watching a film, staring into a painting or reading a book. Whether it be in-depth renderings of alien worlds, the remastering of a classic franchise in an entirely new dimension or the final breath of a beloved character, we've searched far and wide to bring you the 20 most powerful images in gaming. .
