The Entertainment Software Association Reiterates the Importance of Games as a Business

| | Comments (0)
The Entertainment Software AssociationAccording to research done by the Entertainment Software Association (The ESA – a game industry trade group), "The computer and video game industry added nearly $5 billion to the U.S. economy in 2009." The ESA is, obviously, biased; eager to demonstrate the importance of the game industry, but that doesn't mean their information is wrong. The ESA highlighted that the game industry directly employs around 32,000 people with an average annual compensation of $89,781. Their point simply being, games are important to the U.S. economy, and are not to be ignored.
