GAMING AS ART: PERSPECTIVES ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ART AND DIGITAL GAMING

Frank G. Bosman, Archibald L.H.M. van Wieringen



 

Video games are a relative late arrival on the cultural stage. While the academic discipline of game studies has evolved quickly since the nineties of the last century, the academia is only beginning to grasp the intellectual, philosophical, aesthetical, and existential potency of the new medium. The same applies to the question whether video games are (or are not) art in and on themselves. Based on the Communication-Oriented Analysis, the authors assess the plausibility of games-as-art and define the domains associated with this question.
