Art for the Digital Age

This article looks at different aspects from how the computer has affected the gaming system to how it affects children. The graphics have changed and will continue to do so as time goes on. More and more kids want to become video game designers rather than filmmakers. Games are a new lively art. The game environments are so realistic that they convey a powerful sense of mood. Games are becoming more and more important to children because it’s not like the old days anymore where all the kids go out and play until they are told to come home. There is no more grass to play on and parents don’t want their children playing in the street, therefore they have taken to the media and video games. They can play by themselves or in groups which can develop leadership and teamwork, or make a kid that feels unwanted, wanted. However, video games can get a bad reputation for their violence which some people may think has caused tragic events. This phenomenon is most defiantly an art form from its incredible graphics to the emotions we feel.
