Two: The video game industry makes more than the movie and the music industry. It’s an integral and irremovable piece of the global economy. Bungie’s new (somewhat boring) game Destiny was made for half a billion dollars—that’s larger than any budget for any creative project ever. The game sold over $325 million in the first five days. That doesn’t include revenue from merchandise and new downloadable content that the company will roll out in the coming months. The numbers are staggering and only getting larger as the world develops and more people plug in. Many of these hit games are made here, in the United States. Locally, Bethesda Softworks is a leader in the industry. Video games are one of our major exports, not just as a commodity but culturally. This includes passive, mobile games that you have on your phone or tablet. This includes sprawling roleplaying games that eat teenagers’ attention for months at a time. This, luckily, includes Minecraft, one of the healthiest game worlds for young, creative minds.
