Are video games art?

http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6895146/yay-or-nay-are-videogames-art

I frequent collegehumor.com quite a bit. I mostly go to find random, funny videos because I am easily amused (obviously). Anyway, I came across this video that asks the age old question: Are ______ art? In this case, are video games art?

HowToBasic – Why is this so popular?

Can someone please tell me why these videos are so popular? My boyfriend showed me these videos and while he was falling over with laughter, I was sitting there with the most confused look on my face.

This guy’s channel has over 100 millions views and countless videos of him showing people “how to” do basic things. Except, it’s just him more or less making a huge mess and smashing eggs on everything.

I don’t get it.

If someone can please explain to me the fascination of these videos, I am very interested to know.

Here is the link to the channel. Enjoy!

It’s moments like these that restore my faith in the younger generations to come

To see a child retain vast amounts of information and look like she really is interested in what she’s learning, well, it just gives me hope. Even if it is just answering Superhero trivia.

I can only hope Andrew and I can bestow such knowledge to our children so we can, one day, record and post a video for all the world to see our awesome child.

Just kidding. But seriously, I love seeing videos like this because kids these days need something else to cling to and be entertained by other than Yo Gabba Gabba and Diddlybops or whatever other weird kid shows they have on television these days. (Seriously, have you seen some of these programs??)

Side note: I have no idea what Diddlybops is. I think I made it up.

Anyway….

Nothing beat waking up early on a Saturday morning to watch cartoons, GOOD cartoons. Oh, the 90s…what a wonderful time it was…

Awesome parenting at its best! Kudos to this father for enlightening his young daughter. She will be cool, most definitely.

Watch “E3 – Weird gamer guy” on YouTube

I came across this video while on college humor.com and I must say that this must’ve been extremely uncomfortable for that poor girl.

And this video only furthers the stereotype that gamers are weird, which is definitely NOT true.

I dunno.

The Last of Us – Story Trailer

I know this story trailer has been floating around the interwebs from quite some time and while this is totally my boyfriend’s realm, I felt it necessary to share my excitement for this game. I’m not a huge gamer. I’m what I like to call a “selective gamer”. I like what I like and I like this. I won’t say much more, just watch the trailer and visit http://www.thelastofus.com/ for more awesome info!

Release date: June 14th, 2013

Review to follow shortly after.
