What's Better: Playing Video Games or Going to the Movies?

May 21 2009 - 3:45pm

I know, in a perfect world, you'd never have to choose, but a recent study found that more people said they had played a video game in the last month than had gone to the movies [1]. Well, to that I say, doy — we're in the middle of a recession where people are cutting back on entertainment, but if you own a video game, you can continue to play it.

And also, even though you are not going out to the movies and buying tickets, you may be renting movies and watching them on TV.


The study results seem to indicate that video games have gotten more popular than movies and maybe they have — but I don't think it's because people are less interested in the movies. I am an avid gamer, but I like a controller in my hand as much as I like a tub of popcorn in it.

So in light of the survey, whether it makes sense to you or not, I'm curious — you pick: video games or movies?
