We'd rather cut back on food than games, say Americans

Responding to an MSNBC column about how games are recession-proof in the US, readers have said they would rather have less food and clothes than less videogames. We hope you're taking note of this, history.

Improbably named contributor Michael A Ratajczyk, said, “During a recession, I’d probably buy more games and go out to the bar or dinner less for my entertainment.”

“If people don't want to face reality when times are good (at least for the overall economy) then I don't see them wanting to face reality as things get worse,” said another reader, Matt Ellington.
