video ames do a thing that no
er industry does...
But you can be bad at playing a
video game. and the video game
will punish you and deny you access
to the rest of the video game.
You' never been reading a
book and three chapters in, the
book has gone. "What are the
major themes of the ooh so tar?''
You' never been listening to
an album and attentoin songs. the
album has gone. “Dance! Dance!
Show me your dancin is good
You cannot be bad at watching
a movie. You cannot be bad at
listening to an album.
And you' gone. "Well,..
Oh, for ***** sake!"
And you go. "is this good
enough?" and the album goes.

For most games, the singleplayer mode is for telling a story. Everyone should be able to finish the game, but only a small portion will 100% it. Unless the game is intentionally being extremely difficult, then it's pretty bad if the average gamer can't finish it.
#98 to #86 - badpeace (12/20/2012) [-]
A game is not at all bad if you cannot finish it. The ideal perfect game will be following: If the game has the right learning curve and hardness, you will have to learn from your failure and by trial and error become better, so that you can progress. The game will reward you for doing the objectives correctly, it will give you new features and unlocks perhaps, maybe just story progress, and you will feel the feeling of accomplishment that you very rarely feel in games nowadays.

That's the perfect game, singleplayer or multiplayer wise.

final fantasy 13 is beautiful. the soundtracks, the stories, the graphics, all have artistic values. the soundtracks are well conduct music, the stories have a healthy balance of sci-fi, action and drama, and some of the quotes from the game, especially the narration, are as beautiful as literary fictions. And so why we do not call them an art?
#95 to #88 - anonymous (12/20/2012) [-]
because the essence of the game is not the separate parts that make it up, it is the experience of playing it.

the visuals can be art
the music can be art
the story could even be art

but the experience of playing that game is not art, it is simply playing a game. you go out and do missions, solve puzzles, and unlock doors all to work your way to the next objective or to meet some goal. playing the game is not art, it is playing a game.
User avatar #85 to #71 - thisotherdude ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
Art by definition:

The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination

That's not even what I consider to be "art" but still, I can assure you that games (at least some games that is) are indeed an art form.
User avatar #82 to #71 - supamonkey (12/20/2012) [-]
Video games are more of an art form than those paintings that are merely paint ******* against the canvas like the arterial spray from a Vulcan that's just been stabbed in the neck.

That isn't "art" it's "the art of conning people into giving you money for what is essentially nothing".
User avatar #79 to #71 - esmebuffay (12/20/2012) [-]
Art is really up to interpretation, one might describe art as anything pleasing to one of the senses, in which case video games would fit in that category, so would food mind you. Some might describe art as anything that's aesthetically pleasing, video games fit in that category as well. So video games are basically art, but again, what constitutes art is up to interpretation.

bakka! a video game is a combination of music, playing, the visuals, etc.. thats why it is called audio visual
User avatar #91 to #90 - cloudatlas (12/20/2012) [-]

#93 to #91 - anonymous (12/20/2012) [-]
everyone seems to want to justify the argument by breaking up a video game into one or a few specific parts, that aren't the game itself.

the visuals may look good and the soundtrack may be amazing, but the game itself, the experience of playing it, is not art. it is a game.

a chess board and its pieces may be wonderful pieces of art, but the game being played with them is not.

Nice, I did not know that. I must say it was a good soundtrack and I am glad to see this medium starting to get some severely deserved recognition. My favorite score from a video game has to be Oblivion though.

You have to suck pretty hard to be bad at video games today. The market has shifted to casuals, so they have turn the difficulty down to a level that a baked potato could play comfortably. Difficulties have become like soda sizes at McDonald's; Insanity:Hard, Hard: Normal, Normal:Easy, Easy:HURRDURR.

You're looking at it the wrong way. The game is making you get better so that you can advance. You finish reading the book or listening to the CD and you're exactly the same as you were before, whereas the game forced you to improve one skill or another (reflex, strategical or logical thinking, or whatever else). Additionally, having been required to improve to finish it often translates into feeling a sense of gratification when you finally beat it. How often have you gone " **** yeah, I finished listening to this new album!"? But you've probably done the same thing for a game, because it actually required some level of skill in order to do it.

TLDR: Different mediums are different.
User avatar #30 to #19 - Loon (12/20/2012) [-]
I would say that when you finish reading a book you are that much smarter, especially if it is non-fiction, but either way, you probably learned something, and that is never a bad thing :)
User avatar #55 to #30 - asschwitz (12/20/2012) [-]
What if you're reading Twilight?
User avatar #56 to #55 - Loon (12/20/2012) [-]
Hehe, yeah, you would almost expect a paradox, but I still say you learned not to read Twilight books, and you are now more aware of the relatively simple mindset of teenage girls ;)
User avatar #57 to #56 - asschwitz (12/20/2012) [-]
My 45 year old mother read them, I went to see the movies with her. Not because I liked Twilight, but because I don't usually get too much time to spend with her. (Plus there is a gamespot on the way out of the theatre ;D )

You also can't improve a disorder through practice and repetition.
Skills and disorders are NOT directly related and therefore cannot be compared.
People can get better at games. They can't get better at being blind or deaf.
Minecraft itself blocks off endgame content until such a time that you have relevant skill to access it. If you aren't good enough at minecraft to gather and keep enough resources to reach places like the neather or the end, then you can't participate in that content. Your own logic is flawed, this comedian makes a good point.

The difference lies in that it is the NATURE of video games to restrict your access to further content, any video game that did the opposite (like the newer mario bros games) are labeled as 'easy' or 'casual', because it doesn't warrant the same dedication.

By the same coin, if you were to watch a TV series off and on and out of order, rather than watch the episodes as they premier, you wouldn't be getting the same content enjoyment out of them as the people that did. Just like the mario games reference, understanding the intricacies of the story and sub-plots of a show requires dedication.

You can be bad at those things. If you just enjoy movies to look at sideboob and explosions, you are limited from seeing the good stuff, like story and that **** .

Bu... But... You CAN be bad at reading. And you can be blind, or near-sighted and have difficulty watching the movie...

I see you're a 12 year old band wagoner, Nickelback are good and didn't do anything to derserve being hated, I'm not forcing you to like them but don't be a dick, some of their songs are good and I don't find any reason to hate them.
#42 to #7 - farfigschiter (12/20/2012) [-]
Some, very few. I can think of two: burn it to the ground and that one they did with Santana. The reason I hate Nickelback is because they do nothing spectacular. They give off generic, catchy tunes with no lyrical significance to any philosophy, message, circumstance or event. I'm not saying that all songs have to be amazing lyrically but the instrumentals are unoriginal, repetitive and entirely unimpressive; despite all this, they were named band of the decade. This furthered my discontent. I view them in the same light as I do most pop stars that are only there to sell. Or (in terms of relatability), they are the Call of Duty of the music industry.

I think Rockstar was pretty good, the video could be hot and funny at times.
#8 to #7 - anonymous (12/19/2012) [-]
No bandwagon required. They are legitimately terrible, all of their songs sound the same, and the only thing they have going for them is they are not Creed.
#10 to #8 - hvacian (12/19/2012) [-]
Nickelback and Creed are decent bands. I like the Bee Gees, Moody Blues, Imagine Dragons, Celtic Thunder, Finley, Adam Lambert

Hey, people like all kinds of music, you really can't condemn a single artist because you don't like them. Somewhere, someone does, and why not? If you don't like a band or a song, don't listen to it.
#14 to #10 - dudeski (12/19/2012) [-]
Adam Lambert?? ****** ... Adam Lambert? Really?
#16 to #14 - hvacian (12/19/2012) [-]
Yup, really.
User avatar #9 to #8 - andnowducks (12/19/2012) [-]
In my opinion Nickelback's songs sound different, but hey, if you don't like them then don't listen to them, their songs don't get into the charts much any more anyway so just stop putting the hate on them.
