Art in gaming, the renaissance continues

Jonathan Jones makes a wonderfully high minded claim that todays Leonardos (no, Turtle fans, that’s as in da Vinci) can be found alive and well and working at Pixar.

I can’t argue with that.

What I would add, however, is that the same drive, the same talent, can be found alive and well within the games industry.

If the search for experience, and giving people the ability to access and understand that experience isn’t just as worthy of the “art” tag then I’ll be Pollacksed.

Bioshock, Red Dead Redemption, Modern Warfare – these are brave strides into understanding and relaying the human experience in a way that can be accessed by millions.
