This poll is now closed.
The Oxford English Dictionary defines 'art' as "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power"

Though saying what art is and is not is one of the most controversial questions in the history of our species...

Didn't some powerful governing body officially define video games as an art form?

I remember Todd Howard mentioning that when he closed his DICE keynote thing, the one with the gamejam and stuff.

museums are even starting to put video games in them.
so yeah, anyone denying video games are art, is pretty dumb.

You missed "Yes. Just like all videogames." as an option for the poll. Seems more fitting then some of the options you did give (especially since there's a couple there that I'm not sure what you mean for them, since they seem to be just "no" but worded differently).

I thought about it, but I think that would be unsustainable. Not all painting, music or writing is art; it'd be odd if videogames were different.

it doesn't have to be good to be art....

Twilight IS art. its awful terrible art, but its still art.
