Video games have become more and more popular over the last 30 years, changing from something only a few total dorks spent time on to something everyone is doing.
Games are taking over everything, from TV to movies. All the commercials are for videos games, or are based on something from a video game. They're everywhere!
If you're playing video games, that's great. If you're taking these games past the point of the game into something completely new, are you still playing or are you creating something else?
