Depreciating ART HAUS Games

One of my best kept secrets (nope) is that I paint. Is it fancy and artistic? No. This is because I am literally the worst at using metaphors and similes, like a parrot with its wings clipped. Does that make sense? No? See? So while I’ve spent so much time loving what I dub “ART HAUS” games, the reality is that 99% of the time, I have absolutely no idea what they’re about. They’re the ones that try to drive a message using its story, visuals, and gameplay. Since I believe all games are art, the reason why I call these specifically “ART HAUS” is because I can imagine them going to a Friday night poetry slam together. I think they’re so important to video games because they prove that we too can be just as pretentious and artsy fartsy as other mediums, but I always walk away wondering what the hell I just played. Watch the video above to see my interpretations of some of the most famous “ART HAUS” games. It’s all in good fun, and just because a game is great doesn’t mean we can’t all poke a little fun… at myself for not understanding them. Full list of ART HAUUUUSSS after the jump.
