Can computer games be art?

World creation has never seen so robust a medium as video games. You can create, navigate and interact with entirely artificial realms.

But yeah, to @linebaugh 's point, most of it is uninspired, unsophisticated compared to the more established media of world-building, e.g. film.

Death Stranding is perhaps the most sophisticated video game I've played, the one most deserving of being called art.

Plenty of other video games can be called art, in the sense that graphic design is art, i.e. making cool looking stuff.

Yeah its more technical than poetic, a pseudoscience of aesthetics.

I just had my first graphic design gig, as it happens.
