Task: Video to 4.7.7

Talk about it

TL Taylor argues that computer games will become mainstream, that they will become a normal part of everyday life like music or films. Do you agree? You must be able to argue for your point of view.

Write about it

Write a short essay (300 words) in which you discuss whether computer games might be seen as an art form in the future. You might find inspiration in the movie critic Roger Ebert who, in 2005, claimed that he was:

… prepared to believe that video games can be elegant, subtle, sophisticated, challenging and visually wonderful. But I believe the nature of the medium prevents it from moving beyond craftsmanship to the stature of art. To my knowledge, no one in or out of the field has ever been able to cite a game worthy of comparison with the great dramatists, poets, filmmakers, novelists and composers. That a game can aspire to artistic importance as a visual experience, I accept. But for most gamers, video games represent a loss of those precious hours we have available to make ourselves more cultured, civilized and empathetic. thegamecritic.blogspot.com/2007/10/video-games-as-art-form.html
