Again, Nell demonstrates one of the many flaws inherent to his argument. In this case, he claims that all aspects of the entertainment industry lack any sort of response demand. He is completely disregarding the entire gaming industry, and specific to my argument, the computer and video gaming industry.

Myst is such an example.
