Posted March 6, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

There's a recession on...or it's coming...depending on who you believe. Either way, lots of people are threatened by what will happen to their jobs and lifestyle as the sluggish economy continues its downturn. Well, apparently, among the people that need not worry are those in the videogaming industry, which many economic analysts consider to be a recession-proof industry.

Any why, might we ask, is that? It's because, even in times of financial crisis, people need a diversion, and games are a good way to get a lot from a comparatively minimum investment. It's like going to the movies...a cheap way to take your mind off of the lack of money in your pocket.
