#1 Meanwhile, Naughty Dog's boss puts himself in sex scenes in his games.

The industry is as messed up as any other media producer.

#2 I would say that video games are significantly less messed up, only because of the large number of small companies in the field that manage to produce large numbers of quality, profitable, and relatively popular games each year (as opposed to most other forms of entertainment, which are dominated by just a couple giant companies).

#3 Well, the next Ass Creed game probably won't have the 'look to mecca and pray' button. maybe less anti-christian too ?

#5 My wife is the gamer.

I just like to watch the machine-human interaction. It's quite a thing, the way video games are going to be the new netflix, but will reach deeper and actually condition people.

A lot of the 'rainbow farting unicorn' crowd is bad at games, I reckon. They are trying to find an ingress into the minds who are good at games. Which will be difficult.
