When video games are as much accepted as movies.

Are they not as accepted as movies?

Well not by the media IMO. Remember how the media went berserk over the Mw2 mission that had you play as a "terrorist"

Edit: Not to mention Six Days in Fallujah

Edit#2: @ Chuck yeah, you're right it's part of the general culture but I think it can be much bigger. Video games have a lot of potential because you're in control of the story and the ending can be different depending how you go through it(heavy rain).I don't know if that's just me. I just hate how much heat video games take from the media, that's about it lol.

well, just because the media doesn't like certain content in the material doesn't mean it isn't part of the general culture
Edit: I mean even movies are controversial because of their material, but that doesn't mean movies aren't accepted as a genre.

Mario Bros 3 made more money then Jurassic park, and Nintendo and pac-man had cereal 20+ years ago. This is old news imho. Jimmy fallon just jumped on the badwagon.

i am a little worried.... well really worried about this because people and especially kids and teens are more interested in video games, movies and internet and less on History.

Jimmy Fallons show sucks. he is a terrible host. TRY to watch it when hes not talking about gaming

I record it on my DVR and skip through till the parts I want to watch so I don't have to waste a whole hour.

Awookie2946d ago

Yea, and since when is Jimmy Fallon mainstream? hes on the same time as the Magic Bullet, Miracle Juicer etc which are way more entertaining than his show

it's big but not as big as it could be.we still have pitiful award shows that concentrate on celebrity idiots than the games themselves.the producers and directors aren't getting their recognition in the media.we have news media concentrating on the negative games than the positive games because that's not news to them.good news?oh h#ll no.

in america,gaming would have to be more like japan and anime.they accept it likes it's a huge part of their culture.they make live action movies,they make songs,they make food based on's pretty much everywhere.they are even making real robots that look like what's in anime.

once it gets there and not just at late night with some half funny comedian,then it will be mainstream.
