The best game ever made
X, XII, VI, V, etc etc etc etc etc etc***
especially when it ends up coming down to how pretty a game looks (Ico or Okami), how much it apes movies (LA Noire) or how it integrates music/movement with a synaesthetic result (Rez).
There's no real way that you can say that one game is a work of art while saying that another isn't.
I'm not sure it really makes sense to question the artistic qualities of chess, or tetris or streetfighter. The 'art' bit always seems like a bit of a red herring.
As interesting and rewarding as the puzzles are, the aesthetics are what really mark it out as something special. Such a quietly brilliant game.
The visual style of it is brilliant.
Not Smackdown vs Raw. Shame on all of your houses.

That was art, right?
Drummond's former protege Julian Cope was unimpressed, claiming that Drummond still owed him money. "He burned a million pounds which was not all his, and some of it was mine. People should pay off their creditors before they pull intellectual dry-wank stunts like that
In case anyone wants to play The Worst Game Of All Time TM
Plus some other pretty good 2600 games (try Stampede)
the sad thing is I know how to actually play this game and I got 3 ship pieces before I got bored :)
Grim Fandango in particular comes to mind.
The atmosphere, the sound work, and the... well... art were stunning in that game.
I could write a whole thesis on rez. what I love about rez is that you pretty much have to make your own story (there might be an official story) but like art, there's so many ways you can interpret it. It's all about evolution but in what context? You have to decide yourself really. Blows my fucking head wide open and always will be my fav game of all time.
dude get marble madness if you like that on XBOX live, it's sort of like that... you are marbles and you have to collect these diamonds right and it's like multiplayer and you dash around and push other marbles off, it's well fun and cheap (like 400G) so buy it so I can rape you
That's the game you're likening it to.. what IS it called? Marble Blast Ultra? That looks a bit like Kula World (also art, also about £60 on the ps1!!!)
it's like a cross between Kula World and Marble Madness, highly recommended
One man's labour of love created over a number of years. It's an absolutely beautiful homage to classic 8-bit gaming and well worth a download. It's freeware, just google Cave Story and you should be able to find it easy enough.
i genuinely loved just wandering around vast locations that didnt serve any purpose than to look pretty. wonderful
jet set radio
marvel vs capcom 2
the last blade
You control a dolphin in various world to make music. For the time (1998), it was pretty stunning.
