Well I read somewhere that's it's in third place, behind movies and music I think it was.

Gaming is already a bigger industry than movies.

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.

that's because all of your money goes into the catalyst of your destruction (the souped up yamaha blaster that is going to kill you)
