Welcome to TechRaptor’s Weekly Respawn, a podcast dedicated to gaming and technology. Each week, we’ll respawn with a brand new cast to talk about relevant topics and products. This week, Travis Donnell is respawning with Andrew Stretch, Will Meeks, and Don Parsons to talk about video games as art and to share examples they consider relevant. Over the last few years, some people have come out to claim that video games are not art. What do you think?

We covered a few different topics:

  • What constitutes art
  • Are some genre of games more “artistic” than others
  • Examples that we would present to someone who thinks video games are not art
  • How games have challenged our ways of thinking and presented new ideas
  • Travis mispronounces Suikoden and Andrew likes Fez
