Swedish movie director Fredrik Malmberg says games are art

Of course games are art. This is a stupid discussion. But the swedish director of the new Conan movie (I had no idea the director was swedish!) voiced his opinion in a interview with Eurogamer.

“Hell, yeah!! Games are definitely an art form. So much passion goes into games, both from players and from people who make them.

Hollywood is seriously looking at games but has a hard time understanding the business. I don’t think games threaten Hollywood; in my experience gamers are usually uber-consumers when it comes to movies, too. Gamers are totally engulfed in whatever they like; they spot a turkey movie like they spot a turkey game. They’re picky customers.

Having worked in both mediums, they are very different but both satisfying in different ways. Why pick one over the other?

We may spend hours gaming and be almost physically exhausted, but a great film is an inspiration both visually and emotionally that can carry long beyond the experience.”
