Alex Pham is doing a great job in the L.A. Times of explaining that the video game industry includes genuine businesses with real jobs and grown-up careers and proper salaries and everything. You wouldn’t think this is still news to anyone, but I often have this conversation with skeptical friends whose kids want to enroll in something like USC’s demanding BA in Interactive Entertainment program. I first had it over the course of many months at the Hollywood Reporter when I was introducing coverage of the industry to its pages in 2001, against the wishes of the publication’s more entrenched editors.
