* The gaming golden age?

Yahoo News has an editorial - Are we in the golden age of video games?

Gamers find themselves having to make tough choices involving time and money. Sean Eppel, 21, a Mankato (Minn.) State University student, recently fixed his PC and has been trying to finish another blockbuster game, Doom 3, out since August, before he buys Half-Life 2. After that, he's looking forward to Knights of the Old Republic 2 and Need for Speed Underground 2.

"Probably the one and only downfall to all these games coming out in such rapid succession is finding time in between all my classes to play all these games," says Eppel, who typically plays 15 to 20 hours a week. "This is definitely a high point for video games (and) will help to let people know that the gaming industry ...should be taken more seriously."
I can't really say whether this speaks to me or not - there are plenty of good games this month, but it's after a few months when no games were coming out that were worthwhile. In fact, it's safe to say that every November/December season is like this.

As for the "golden age" of games... nah. We're not there yet.
