Art is an integral part of many videogames, but its importance is often debated. From cartoon style characters to high resolution environments, art sets the stage for game play … but is the quality of the art important to you?
Welcome back to Topical Tuesday! Every week we ask the community a question related to our weekly magazine topic. Our goal is to begin an intelligent discussion based on a topic that’s uniquely relevant to us as gamers and nerds, and the industry we love. Opinions are welcome, but please justify your claim with support-such as quoting information from one of our featured articles-even if that requires a little research before posting. Please use examples to back-up your opinion.

Is quality art important to have in videogames?
What videogames do you feel have the best art? (please use [spoiler] tags if posting screenshots)
Ladies and Gentlemen, to your keyboards and discuss!
