Why The Game Industry Is Smarter Than Hollywood – And Must Stay That Way To Survive

In Hollywood, there aren't any small players that can act independently from the rest. "There are hundreds of independent filmmakers," the studios would say. But who must those filmmakers work with to ensure that us, the viewing public, are aware their films exist? "The Internet is changing everything," is another gimmick you hear. In truth, Hollywood has sunk their teeth into that as well.

But the video game world is different. It's not corrupt by dispersion and multiple core competencies.

Video games better than Hollywood's movies and network television these days? Nooooo, I can't see that...pff, yeah right. TV and movies have been on the down and out for at least half a decade now, and with larger budget games like Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, Assassin's Creed, and a myriad of others, I'm hoping Hollywood's days are numbered. Games are superior to those other entertainment mediums by a large margin.
