THe problem is : The "industry" is just *not* trating video games as "art".

Cheap DVD cases, online DRM, DRM in general, no printed handbooks, talking or even defining "games" merely as "SKUs" …

Just everything points towars the "industry" ingnoring this "games are art" thing completely … For them, they are merely tools to get money/profits …

There is a definitive, distinct hiatus between how gamers see games and how "the industry" see games.

If the industry would *really* agree to this "games are art" principle, they would treat them differently, I'm sure …
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
