A fantastic achievement for a deeply under-appreciated medium.

What interested me the most was the reaction of people.

Some of them out and out dismissed it as "video game incidental not worthy of this list" blah blah blah. These were generally the people who then went on to say "Films are in, but they're popular," so they obviously didn't realize just how big a business this is.

But generally, the worst reaction was "It's not for me, but it obviously deserves its place." The best, and more common than I thought, was "I'd never heard this before, and I'm glad I got to."

As a group, we're often led to believe that society looks down on gamers and on games as a whole. That's because the news likes to run so many anti-gaming stories. But then you read something like this and see people's reaction, and you realize most people really don't care either way, and at best are willing to learn more about the medium if they're exposed to it.
