Check out my latest Blogcritics post on “Why Gaming is Serious Business.”

Here’s an excerpt:

The death of E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) as we know it notwithstanding, the future is bright for gaming, which is already a big business and will continue to grow in the years to come.

According to DFC Intelligence, revenue from interactive entertainment (that’s electronic games in plain English) will reach US$42B in 2010, up from US$28.5B in 2005.

I’m convinced that gaming will become one of the leading means for communication and social interaction among people from all over the world, becoming a new common ground in the face of the decline of mass media.
