Game devs respond to Trump with video highlighting games’ art and beauty


President Donald Trump showed a reel of video game violence last week during a meeting with the game industry as part of an attempt to find solutions to gun violence. And this week, the game industry has responded with an 88-second reel — the same length as Trump’s video — showing the beauty of games.

The video comes from Games for Change, a video game nonprofit that highlights the power of games to change the world. If Trump’s video represented the worst of video games and a reason to blame them for gun violence, this response video could be seen as the best that games have to offer.
