Love the topic, although it's never going to get approved.

Language evolves, it always has. Fifty years ago you'd be punished for ending a sentence on a preposition, now can put "txtspk" into an exam and pass so long as what you've written is understandable.

As for video game or videogame, I'd go with the former because the definition stands alone as two words. That's personal choice though and it wouldn't surprise me to see the latter become the norm as the hobby becomes more popular.
