Shigeru Miyamoto "Nintendo games are not art but products"

I will definitely say I enjoy games that are meant to be games far more than games trying to be art. I guess this explains why I keep buying Nintendo "not art" products.

I'll just copy/paste this from the other discussion about gaming and art:

Video games as a product themselves are not art. Everything that goes into them is the art. You can certainly have a game that is incredibly artistic, but it's the people that put the time into creating the audio and visuals of the game that are the artists, and where the art actually comes from.
I'm not going to flat out say that video games aren't art, because that discredits the people who put so much work into it. Video games as the medium that you play is artistic, but it's not a painting or sculpture.
And I will go as far as to say the same thing with movies, as much as Ebert will disagree. Gone With The Wind and Dude Where's Your Car can't be both lumped into being art, the same way ICO and Mortal Kombat can't be.

He is kinda right. Video Games are a product, however like any product you can make an artistic statement with it in some form.


Well said. These things are mass produced and that immediately lowers their value. Music, movies, games, its all art, but not in the same sense of something that someone spend some time on making with their own hands.

A rare sculpture or painting that someone slaved over will always be significantly more valuable and appreciated far more than anything that was produced for the public on a mass scale.

Miyamoto is a hollow shell of his former self?!

Aren't Japanese people really humble?

the exact opposite

they have quite the superiority complex, especially in regards to non-japanese

Well yeah kinda. The above things you mention still have art merits though some are higher then others and few can be juvenile at best (The Fable series and Duke Nukem in a nutshell)

But there has been few games going for actual art, I think only like indie games try that.

Compared to all the other bullcrap that is considered art, to me it is.

Wait, don't games like Okami, Limbo, and Braid use different art styles?

indeed Nintendo games may not be art but Nintendo is still enjoyable for little kids.
