THERE'S MORE THAN ONE REASON!
In my last post, I shared my history with video games, that it was an outlet, an escape for me, and how wanted to do that for someone else.
But besides my history, I also have a firm BELIEF that video games are more than just "games". Here are 2 more reasons why I want to create video games.
1. An Art Form
Nobody questions painters, writers, graphic designers, or photographers on why they want to create art. As human beings, one of our innate desires, I believe, is to create. Something. Anything. I have told people that video games are art, and they have looked at me weird. What I don't understand is, how people can think that video games are not art. It has design, story, music, visuals, and a whole other level of interaction. I think video games are the ultimate art.
I have always been an artist, in some form or another and I want to bring all my artistic abilities together to create this true form of art.
