Op Ed

Gamasutra - Legitimacy For Game Developers.

No, computer gaming is not in the mainstream, although I see how you can get that impression if you only hang out with gamers. Example: the question "Read any good books lately?" is commonly heard, but "Played any good games lately?" is only asked between gamers.
