The Most Beautiful Game

The biggest gaming event in the world is going to happen in a couple of weeks. And I’m not talking about the E3 or the GDC. We often forget that games aren’t exclusive of the digital industry and that they had existed for ages in different cultures around the globe. Sports are games as well, and the World Cup is one of the most extraordinary global events that unifies mankind in a one month celebration thanks to the grace and beauty of one single beautiful game: Football*.

As a game developer I still can’t believe how my whole country turns completely mad when the world cup is about to begin. How the media from the whole world -except USA- starts talking and wondering about how some talented athletes from around the globe will play their game.

Do you need any more proof than this to discover that games are one of the biggest cultural practices we have? Games are art, Football* is art.

* Soccer Smile.
