Video Games are an art form.

Why Video Games Are Works of Art by Kyle Chayka explains how Video Games are an art form just like Movies, Television, Music, and even Physical Art pieces fit into the category of Art. Chayka makes the argument that as we play any video game we take time to enjoy artistic form, and how we take into consideration its visual beauty.
"But video games are nothing if not experiential. They are visuals and music and poetry all wrapped up into a single package. A video game isn't just a game-it is a controlled passage through an overwhelming aesthetic experience." (Chayka 397)

  2. I also don't see how you're going to use it in your essay :-/
