Abstract

Recent videogames continue to surprise and impress with their artistic sophistication. Their development, moreover, is credibly seen as something new in art. Games such as the open-world adventure western Red Dead Redemption give the impression of being a kind of interactive cinema where the player imaginatively steps into a fictional world to discover the story of her character, a story that depends on decisions that she makes. The result is a beautiful, complex and meaningful work of art.
