All of this.


To BillW’s commentary, I would add a few thoughts.  Video games are evolving and society is evolving.  The games have become waaaay better than ever before, and we have no reason to assume that trend will reverse.  Simultaneously, our society has made it far more comfortable to be destitute.  Being broke isn’t nearly as boring and dangerous as it once was.  Those two factors working together make it easy enough to foresee a future with even more gamers completely absorbed in their virtual worlds.
