The Lester Bangs of Video Games

Esquire:Feature Story:The Lester Bangs of Video Games: “There are still people in America who do not take video games seriously. These are the same people who question the relevance of hip-hop and assume newspapers will still exist in twenty-five years. It’s hard to find an irrefutably accurate statistic for the economic value of the video-game industry, but the best estimates seem to be around $28 billion. As such, I’m not going to waste any space trying to convince people that gaming is important. If you’re reading this column, I’m just going to assume that you believe video games in 2006 are the culture equivalent of rock music in 1967, because that’s (more or less) reality.”

Amen, brother.
