What’s happening in the video game industry matters to America | Rare: "Gamers have fought not to be controlled by a group of people who believe they know what’s best for everyone, which the right should also understand.
Their biggest mistake was underestimating the size and fight of the dog that is the gaming community. In short, it’s big.
The video game industry is a massive, multi-billion dollar industry that habitually outperforms Hollywood as the top cultural medium. Currently, the most watched person on YouTube is a guy who records himself playing and commentating on video games.
The video gaming community has its own professional leagues with sponsors. It has generated charities that have raised millions of dollars. Games are even being used more and more in schools as a teaching tool.
This is all due in part to the fact that video games have become more than just getting Mario to the princess or shooting your friends online. Video games have become the great story teller of our time."
