CDPR Story Director Doesn’t Think The Witcher Is a Work of Art

Earlier today, we’ve reported on CD Projekt RED’s sold concentration on a story when building games.

But there’s another partial of a talk published by Culture.pl that’s good value highlighting. That’s where Story Director Marcin Blacha explains that he doesn’t trust a diversion like The Witcher to be a work of art.

I’ve participated in such discussions many times, nonetheless we was never quite assured because, to tell we a truth, we don’t know. we know that games are an critical partial of enlightenment – this is undoubtable. But either they can be art or partial of it? we theory so, though not en masse, definition not each diversion is a work of art… And there are cases where a diversion is a work of art or scarcely a work of art. With a diversion like The Witcher, we don’t consider so, though there are artists who demonstrate themselves by formulating games. It’s a identical form of countenance to portrayal a design or essay poetry.

Film or visible humanities are opposite from games in that they are destined from a really commencement to a really end. There positively are such forms of art – generally complicated art – that assume a grade of interaction, that play with a audience. But one can assume that normal art is most reduction interactive than games. In a box of games, artists are scriptwriters, though it is a gamer who is a ultimate director, since it’s a gamer who decides about what will eventually occur in a game, and in what form events will happen. This is a argumentative issue, we don’t feel efficient adequate to plead it, though we can see a certain transparent disproportion between Bergman’s films – contend Wild Strawberries – and a game. Firstly, a diversion is customarily not designed with a goal of apropos a work of art. Secondly, we have a gamer who creates a ultimate decisions on how a diversion will follow.

What do we think? Is The Witcher, in sold a third and final game, a work of art? In a meantime, a Blood Wine enlargement is destroying a foe in a ‘Best DLC’ difficulty of our Reader’s Awards 2016 poll.
