I'm on the side of games here at least in the area of computers and at
least over the last maybe 30 or so years.
Games should be expanded to "entertainment" I think that's a more precise word.
While productivity has pushed some innovation, I don't think it pushed
as much as entertainment.
I think the argument that because people wanted to use computers to be
platform for entertainment, this drove a lot of innovation is valid.
