would you eat at a restaurant if you found out the chef and his cooks not only did not receive tips from the waitstaff, but worked 12-14 hours a day standing up, with no health benefits, in a hyper-macho prison-like social environment? thats the culinary industry. dont take my word for it though. find a chef and find out for yourself. at least the game programmers can sit down in an air-conditioned room without threat of being knifed in the ass "accidentally". the worst thatll happen is an aspergers outbreak among the cubicles... -0.

seriously, the answers to this question are as facile as a 1st semester comp-sci major espousing the benefits of LISP as it pertains to programming thats functional. its too bad there isnt a Slashdot for the cultural elite. because, unless you have an MFA you have no "business" even attempting to answer this question. i wish i could go point for point, and eviscerate the logic of every single one of your arguments, but im too busy Creating Work to care. -0.
