The Daily Beast - Gamers Want to Game: Video Games Arenít Blockbuster Movies. Thanks Matthew.
People who make and play video games need to realize that movies arenít their competition. TV and film are competition for each other, but anyone who wants to play a game doesnít want to do either of those things. Every medium is at it best when itís doing something no other medium can do. TV shows are at their best when they tell a massive story over dozens of hours and really flesh out their characters and their world. Films are at their best when they can compact a story down to its essentials.

Video games are best when they allow a player to experience something new or interact with another world in a meaningful way.
