    Gaming is already a bigger industry than movies.

    That's just box office sales. I'm sure movies pass games once DVDs and rentals are taken into account.

    I spend more money in a month on gaming than I have ever spent on movies. I'd simply rather be gaming.

    I buy a lot of cds each month and dl quite a few songs, as well. Listening to music is a huge passion for me. As for movies I go in spans of watching them a lot; lately I've been in a span where I've been watching them A LOT. I, also. buy a few games a year, and I play it every once in a while. For, I guess, it would be music->movies->games I really don't have enough time to spend on games, and besdies I get tired of playing a game quickly now. Side note, Civ2 was the most addicted game ever for me along with the Madden football series and the Sim City games. Good day now.
