I was just sitting here thinking gosh, "video game" does sound a bit silly, even though we're all completely used to it now and it's probably fine. Still, other mediums have such simpler names with a certain reverence to them now - books, movies, music, art . . . video games. It's no sillier than "motion picture" was before being simplified, but it's never quite rolled off my tongue nicely.
So . . . what would you call them? Is there even a better name?
