Somebody Gets It

Those chaps at the Economist have a well-reasoned and well-researched article on games, bringing some much needed rational thought to the whole Hot Coffee brouhaha. The concluding paragraph sums it up nicely:

Like rock and roll in the 1950s, games have been accepted by the young and largely rejected by the old. Once the young are old, and the old are dead, games will be regarded as just another medium and the debate will have moved on. Critics of gaming do not just have the facts against them; they have history against them, too. “Thirty years from now, we’ll be arguing about holograms, or something,” says Mr [Dimitri] Williams.

I was just saying the same thing the other day.
