If video games are art, does that mean all video games should be pleasant? (Because art should always be pleasant).
>>
>art should always be pleasant
But that's wrong.
>>
who says art should always be pleasant

a FAGGOT that's who.

that video of a girl shoving spaghetti-o's in her cunt isn't pleasant and it's apparently art

I'm pretty sure he's making a joke regarding the whole Hatred shitstorm.

Why does it matter if video games are considered art? Artfags are pretentious and intolerable.
>>
>>275919781
it's not art. it's "art"

>Because art should always be pleasant

I could spend all day explaining why this is dumb, but instead I'm just going to post one of my favorite works of unpleasant art.

Is Grave of the Fireflies pleasant?

Not all art is pleasant, it can feature a wide range of emotions, including negative ones, anyone who at least took basic art classes knows this. Sometimes art can even pop up from absurdly terrible things, like loss edits and dick jokes.

That said, like any medium, video games have the capacity to perhaps be art- But under no circumstances do they HAVE to be.

I don't know man, I have a vore fetish so that's pretty damn pleasant to me.

Holy shit this. The amount of retardation in this thread is fucking insane.
>>
videogames are videogames and should strive to be videogames. they should be critiqued as videogames by videogame enthusiasts, i.e. people who like videogames
>>
untrue. if Hatred comes out, it'll make a huge joke of games and invalidate it as an art style. it's similar to how The Human Centipede made a huge joke of movies and invalidated it as an art style, nobody takes films as art seriously anymore
>>
>>275919692
thats also who makes the art
>>
>>275919949
this is actually a good explanation

Insanity isn't the same thing as being retarded. You're a fucking idiot dude go back to Reddit

Some of them can be, the issue here is that people are FORCING them to be their definition of art meant for other mediums. They try to force it into a narrative and static definition instead of allowing the creation of it's own natural definition that takes into account what makes a video game so different from other mediums.

These faggots try to make 'muh deep art' with the wrong medium, like trying to use a canvas for movie production, and yet they have the gall to blame the medium instead of their own shallow views on what they can and cannot do, and instead of growing as a person they drag down everyone else to their level.
