Four is a trend

Apparently I do have a cultural line across which There Be Monsters, and that is this New York Observer story on writers quitting fiction to write video games. I am not against all video games, nor am I against authors writing for video games which indeed can be very elaborate (though I'm going off my experience beating my head against a wall trying to beat Myst... remember Myst?) A working author is a working author! But I am not convinced this is "the way the industry is going," and if it is then we need to turn this minivan around.
