Games for Change Combats Trump's Video with One Demonstrating Beauty

Don't forget the good that video games can bring.

We recently reported on the video of violent video games posted by the White House. Many gamers responded, believing it to be a poor representation of video games. Now one organization pushes back with their own video, showing how beautiful games can be.



Produced by Games for Change, a nonprofit that highlights the power of games to change the world, the video is the exact same length as the violent one but instead filled with scenes from games that best represent the beauty and creativity of video games. Asi Burak, the chairman of Games for Change, had this to say:

We made it at Games for Change over the weekend. It's more of a love letter to the industry and to the medium. We hope it contributes to the conversation and demonstrates the beauty and joy of games in a way that is very different from the White House video.


The video includes scenes from The Last of Us, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Minecraft, The Last Guardian, Little Big Planet, Overwatch, Celeste, Shadow of the Colossus, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Leo's Fortune, Firewatch, Portal 2, Ori and the Blind Forest, and Journey. It concludes with the message, "To all the game creators and players, thank you."

Fingers are being pointed towards video game violence for the cause of recent world events, such as school shootings. A controversial topic stretching back to the '90s, evidence has (and still is) lacking towards this claim. It's important we recognize all the wonderful and unforgettable times video games has brought to the world. After all, video games are the greatest art form.
