Are Video Games Considered Forms of Art?

      From my point of view, I believe that video games can be considered forms art because you use your mind and can be very creative while playing videos games, on the other hand some kids can stay up all night playing video games and might have stuff to do 

and would be very tired the next day. Another reason, would be that staring at a screen could damage your eye sight.

      One reason I believe that video games can be considered a form of art is because you would use your mind to be very creative with what you’re doing. You can be very creative because you would have to strategize what you’re doing because you would have to stay alive or survive in your video game. Another reason is because you would have to figure out what you’re doing in the game in order to beat it, so you would test things out to see if they work and if they don’t you would keep trying so you can beat it. Also you would use your imagination to create things like shelter, food, potions, and tools to keep yourself alive.
     Another way I see it is some kids might stay up very late playing video games and will probably have other things to do the next day like school or a job. Also if you stay up all night playing video games could damage your eye sight because you’re looking at a screen all the time, although there is a good way.

     In conclusion, video games are considered forms of art in some ways but in other ways it isnt. It is considered a form of art because you use your mind and be very creative and use strategies while playing video games but sometimes you get too entertained and don’t sleep and it damaged your eyes. Also, while playing video games you are most likely eating a lot of snacks and just sitting down or laying down most of the times causing you to gain weight and not being healthy.
