Actually, I believe that is true. The gaming industry passed the
record industry a few years back, and they are certainly approaching
the movie industry if they have not already surpassed it.
Publicly held game-related companies have performed quite well in
the stock market as well. Electronic Arts (ERTS) and Nvidia (NVDA)
have been mutual fund and IRA staples for a couple of years now. I
personally made a killing on Acclaim Entertainment (AKLM) last year,
even with the September 11 fallout.
Although I don't know precisely how the game industry stacks up
against the movie industry, gaming is definitely a growth industry.
