The Invisible Statue: Will the future get to know about us?


Isn't it pretty fucking inspiring how this is turning? Imagine what the people far in the future will think of these creations. We commonly relate anthropomorphic sculptures with the adoration of gods. What would these gods be interpreted as, exactly? Our gods of technology? Judging how extremely attached we are with it today, I would agree. Legend says of a giant statue known as "The Colossus of Rhodes" which represented the god of the Sun, "Helios". Why can't other representations of humanity stand tall adored by the millions of fans everywhere? Heck, Mickey Mouse already has a bronze statue with his creator Walt Disney on Disneyland, that is pretty damn immortalized already.

In conclusion, I believe that if we want to consider video games as a fundamental artistic leg in society, we should think of ways to immortalize it. All these ideas, the magic behind of video games is known by obscure sources today, and very rarely, intellectually discussed in actually printed media. Sure, all of this would take a long time to develop, but Rome was not built in a single day either. And you already know how well known the basic history of Rome is.

About Monodione of us since 10:46 PM on 10.15.2008

About time I updated this freaking thing!

For those who already know me, I am Monodi. Those who doesn't, well, I am Monodi.

I got such a growing passion of gaming through the years and now I am currently in college starting my courses of Game Design as well!

I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy from all my life, but I have been much more in contact with titles for PC recently. Not that I am abandoning one, but I think it pretty much could cover the best the industry has to offer.

I am up for the philosophy that gameplay is more important than graphics, but I think graphics and technology are also a crucial part of the industry and experience even.

Half-Life 2 (PC/XBOX)
