Yes, As Every now & then , we are able to see Masterpiece ! Borderlands Series, Bioshock Series , the two i mentioned are FPS ones, yet they have pretty different feel in them. All the Assassin's Creed Blended history with Stunning City life, you can enjoy small , yet quite much the feel of the place. Hitman Series, Tale of Agent 47, is not a man entangled in Struggle,but also a smooth artist to get out of that. Metro Series shown us how can Post-Apocalyptic world be. These are just fe. As An Artist has his on mark, they differ in style,they have their theme by, which they breathe life into canvas. Its just points to Artist with Paint skill. As the game world is vast, The Art is also, so you can only give example, but hey ill never be enough. Even nature is a well known artist. Just imagine Rain after pretty hard dry days. You guessed it life, it gives new hope to the outer.

Video Game as a medium depicts human life and expresses human emotion which are difficult to express otherwise.It combines the traditional forms of art (words, sound, video, images), and uniquely connects these art forms together with interactivity. So yes video game are a form of art of the modern society.
