On that subject, do Canadian arcade games still charge what they used too? When I was in Canada a few years back, arcade games that would be fifty cents here where two Canadian dollars. Have they been adjusted, or are arcades making incredible amounts of money?

Arcades? The only arcade that is still around here is actually built inside an Empire Theatres (movie theatre for those of you unfamiliar). It takes Tokens, which you can buy 3 for 1$... and everything either takes 2 or 4 tokens.

To answer your question, to as if they make money, two words.

MONEY. GRAB.

with lazy- unhealthy, wasteful, fat, geeky, and a bit weird

Just curious
Mm its interesting that you associate game careers with the stereotype of the lazy game player - is that not like thinking that people who write and direct films are lazy wasteful people who sit in front of films all day?

I guess a career in creating games requires a diverse range of skills, from creative designing to technical computing. And who cares if you donīt make a million and that people think you you are weird if you do something you love AND that is so popular as a form of entertainment!
