Kids prefer video games over TV, toys

LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- Teenagers deem video games a more meaningful form of entertainment than television, executives said Tuesday at the What Teens Want conference in Beverly Hills. And the medium is appealing more and more to younger kids, too...

Boys aged five to 12 spend more time with video games than they do with traditional toys, said Steve Schnur, worldwide executive of music/audio at Electronic Arts, the world's No. 1 video game maker.

I would really like to know why the media and the general public still to this day do not see video games as the market that it is. It is baffling, it truly is. I have seen different sources state that the video game industry has out-grossed the movie industry. Yet video games is still a "fringe" market to most of the media, and therefor the public.
