Gaming business has surpassed the Number 1 entertainment industry spot which previously belonged to porn. So I don't think its dieing anytime soon.

If sales of games are going up over the years then video games are far from dying. Im not even going to read the article because it doesnt deserve a hit.

Games this gen have begun rivalling movies in story and experience. Hell look at the mass effect 3 controversy, If it was a movie it would have been forgotten about already. Look at the COD vs BF3 stuff going on nearly 6 months after it started.

So basically short answer... NO.
