Twenty years ago, video games were a niche hobby. Relegated to the back rooms and bedroom TV’s, they were seen as toys, and if you continued to play with them after a certain age, you were labeled a nerd or a geek. The players of video games were the spiritual successors to the old Dungeons and Dragons players of the 70’s.
However, technology advanced and video game consoles were able to do better and brighter things, luring people in with their seductive spell. The final blow that shattered the wall separating gamer from non-gamer was the Nintendo Wii. Apparently motion controls were all that were missing for mainstream approval. And almost everyone knows someone who’s a hardcore World of Warcraft player.
The video game industry now makes more money annually than even Hollywood. Mainstream film actors often lend their voices to games, if not downright produce the games themselves, like Jack Black and Vin Diesel. In short, video games are an acceptable hobby loved by millions, persecuted only by the clearly crazy.
Of course, with any booming industry, you get lots of little peripheral industries to go along with it. Such as industry news sites.
