6. FWIW, there are a lot of women who enjoy video games, too.

And I'm old enough to remember when the very first pong machines came out. Not sure if that was during the Ford, or Nixon administration.

Also a lot of interesting narrative stuff has been happening in videogames. It's not just all shoot-shoot-shoot, although certainly that is a part of a lot of games.

I think there is a depth to a game like, say, Mass Effect or Bioshock Infinite - philosophical, political, etc - that you're not going to find on a machine you keep putting quarters into.
