Video Games! Art! Finally!

Last month the Museum of Modern Art announced they would be including a permanent collection of video games into their museum in March. 
PacMan, Tetris, The Sims, are just a few of the titles that will join famous Picassos, Pollocks and Warhols on the walls of MoMA.

This video by PBS Idea Channel discusses their acquisition and talks about his picks for the 5 most artful video games.

 That begs the question, are video games art? If not, why not? If so, why so? If you had to list what you think are the Top 5 Most Artful Video Games, what would you include on that list?

    It was weird to see video games turning into art. Mona Lisa head was Mario's.

  2. I feel that a video game is a work of art because videos were made out effects and I feel effects are a work of art.

  3. I think that video games should be art because you need to have good color skill to make the objects in the game pop out. Also you have to be a good drawer to make the objects look real.

  4. I think that was creative.
