Maybe one day we can be a heavy hitter in the videogames scene, like America is for Movies, but I dont think that's going to happen unless the government backs the UK gaming industry.

Good news indeed, I do appreciate the irony of 10-20 years ago video games being a subject to laugh at when talking to anyone over 18, a certain snobbery and agenda of fear towards the development, whereas now everyone loves them, the industry is a mature market for international business and yet we are seeing more and more sub-par games flying off the shelf, I can't hope that people in the public becoming more aware of what games can be will cause a demand for higher quality design either, it seems most forms of media are taking a turn for the worse in the UK at the moment, film industry for example, many people will happily go and watch poor movies and TV is pretty much filled with cheap reality shows and documentary's that achieve nothing, even the wonderful recent boom in the stand-up comedy circuit has been fashioned into just another way to make a TV show even if that means allowing a single comedian to ramble on to a crowd about nothing for 30 minutes with exceptionally low production capabilities that generally shine through poorly because these comedians have never had to work along such lines before. Recession isn't just stripping our pockets, it's stripping our media of good ideas. I don't know if games will revive a demand for quality is all.
