Are video games art? It's a debate that will rage on until dinosaurs are resurrected from amber, are placed in a theme park, then break loose and kill all mankind. While we're waiting for that to happen, mobile app Prisma (which is now available for iOS and Android devices) lets you turn video game screenshots into actual artwork.
We've taken some of the best snaps from world-renowned video game forum and international piss-boiling bait takers NeoGAF and transformed them. Look on in wonder.
Uncharted 4 is already one of, if not the best looking games ever made. Put it through one of Prisma's filters and you get this. Quite wonderful.

God of War 3
God of War is an incredible looking PS3 game. It looks so good, the PS4 remaster holds up pretty well too.

We don't all love Bloodborne here at VideoGamer.com, but we do appreciate its art style. Run it through a filter and you get striking images like this.

Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour demo
The Resi 7 demo got a lof of people talking, mainly about a mannequin's severed finger, but it's also a pretty (if you like the aesthetic of murder houses) game.

Red Dead Redemption
As the only last-gen game in this feature, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption still holds up well when pushed through the Prisma app.

Doom is perhaps the most impressive 60fps game on consoles. It looks great, and the sci-fi style translates brilliantly to this artistic style.

Say what you want about the Xbox One, but Quantum Break is one of this generation's most impressive looking games.

Far Cry Primal
Ubisoft is on the end of a lot of criticism, mostly centred on visual 'downgrades', but its games still look great. Far Cry Primal is no exception.
