    Acording to the figures you posted you are indeed correct in you original assertion that the video game industry has surpassed both the music and video industry in gross receipts. Also, the figures report 2/3rds of the US population plays video games (though how they could know that is a bit shaky, sounds like someone is spittballing for advertising effect).

    Personally I find it's like the stats that the porn industry trumps all other entertainment media - sad.

    Well, what do you think? Society had long associated video games with: 1) laziness 2) Childishness 3) Excessive violence and nihilism. This advertisement targets all three suggestions. Are you really believing that the target voters are video game players, or even more specifically, not potentially weirded out by online gaming culture? It can be a side, small issue. But if you can get people thinking about it in the back of their heads, well, it works out for her opponents.

    and just when you thought it could not get any worse....

    "An estimated 211.5 million people, or about two-thirds of the population, play video games in the U.S"
    Did they mention what server he plays on and what his arina ranking is?

    Well gee I hope you've never read a book, gone to the movies, watched a TV show or played a board game.

    You know you actually don't own Pennsylvania Ave in real life when you play Monolopy right?

    No, it would be the world where people actually build stuff and do things with their life rather than wasting it playing couch potato.

    I bet you'd burn more calories with the crooked stick then with a +4 sword of geekness.

    I just find it hard to believe that no one you know plays any sort of video game unless you live in some cloistered community. Do you count video poker? Maybe some of them secretly play The Sims for hours each night but hide it to avoid persecution by the local community.

    So you are claiming that conservative leisure activities are always constructive? Please see my above post referencing golf and horse dancing.
