 The Video Game Revolution: "Eight Myths About Video Games Debunked" by Henry Jenkins | PBS

 Wikinfo | Computer game
A computer game is not necessarily a video game, or vice versa; for instance a text-based role-playing game could be played verbally by a blind person, which is clearly no longer a "video" game, and the first generation of video games, such as Pong, used dedicated electronic circuitry not even remotely resembling a computer.
Computer games will typically feature a wider assortment of direct controls exploiting the full computer keyboard, while video games tend to use more layers of menus, or motion sequences (up-up-down-left, etc) via the game controller.
Video game manufacturers usually exercise tight control over the games that are made available on their systems, so unusual or special-interest games are more likely to only ever appear as games on general-purpose computers.

 Video_games - The real meaning from Timesharetalk wikipedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)

Gamers, as is the collective term used for computer and video gaming enthusiasts, have created a vast body of their own neologisms, fan fiction, and fanmade games.

How a simple, text-based game (based on a nearly 20 year old DOS game) that is downloaded over the Internet, played on Palm Pilots, and features no graphical imagery is contributing to the very real issues of violence is questionable.
What's missing from contemporary debate on gaming and culture is any naturalistic study of what game-playing experiences are like, how gaming fits into people's lives, and the kinds of practices people are engaged in while gaming.
The challenges of using games in educational contexts highlight many of the problems with arguments made by game critics who posit that games with violent imagery are "teaching" our kids to become aggressive or increasingly violent (See Grossman, 2000; Provenzo, 1991).
