“Video Games: the New Art Form” by Nathaniel Bodnar

About this film:

“My family and I were discussing Christmas lists at Thanksgiving just recently. My brother is a graphic artist and asked for a fifty dollar photo print. However, when I mentioned a sixty dollar video game, the standard running price for major new releases, that I had added to my list, I proceeded to be mocked, with questions like “Why do you need to spend that much on a video game?” I created this short film as a way to express my feelings to these sorts of remarks from non-gamers and critics. People always think of paintings, photography, literature, music, and film as art. The film addresses the questions “But why not video games?” The objective of the film is to show non gamers that video games have similar features to their favorite art form.”
