Excellent Wolfenstein 3D sequence. I like that you see the steady decline in health and ammo just before the victory leap with the key aquired.

In Batman: Arkham Asylum, the Joker laughs at something only he can understand as he is hauled off to asylum.

A quiet, reflective moment in Trine as the wizard gazes towards the cavern's waterfall before he pulls the lever to the drawbridge.

JT, have you thought about turning these into an art collection and trying to get them shown in a gallery? I find some of these absolutely gorgeous examples of what is possible within virtual worlds.

Thanks for the compliment, but since the real art comes from the artists that made the game, I would feel like a hack exhibiting screenshots. I suppose if I could do a gallery show with some of the games' artists present where we printed up my screenshots and gave them proper credit, then that would actually be a lot of fun.

Actually, that was more of what I had in mind. Use games you have permission to use and show images that reveal the potential diversity within video game art, ranging from the realistic to the ridiculous. Use it not as a means to claim personal benefit but instead to further push the idea of games as art by revealing what developers have created, using their games for poetic, interesting, entertaining, or disturbing imagery.

I think it's a good idea because it's the kind of gallery show I would want to go to. :)

What do you mean "ridiculous"? I'm being completely serious right now.

One of the beauty of games is that their design is limited solely by the rules set forth in the creator's mind, allowing for unwholly realistic possibilities. For instance, a game like Gungrave or Katamari Damacy is so seperated from reality as to be ridiculous. Now they both conform to the realities of the worlds they exist in, but those worlds are not our own, and the rules of games can sometimes be broken quite easily.
