I play video games because they are taking stories to a new level.   
   
I mean, think about it. When you read a book, you imagine the story playing out in your head. You read words and picture something in your head that you think the story looks like.   
   
A movie is like the next level after a book, you don't just read and imagine a story, you see it. You see a story in front of your eyes, which gives it more depth and understanding.    
   
Video games is the next level after that, because not only are you watching the story, you're playing the story. You can even control the story to a point. Take a game like Dark Souls; every NPC you say yes/no to or attack or kill or do things in a separate order will change the story, and can change certain events dramatically. When you read a book or watch a movie, you watch the character make that choice, but when you play a video game, you make the choice. I play video games for plotlines moreso than gameplay or graphics.   
   
Just my opinion :D

Have a thumb!

But I don't see how a movie can have "more depth and understanding". Because, as you point out, you don't just "imagine a story, you see it."
In a good movie you get to know the characters, you know what bothers them, what they like and what they want to get done. You know a lot of whats, but you don't know how they react on an emotional level. I like to imagine it.

In a book you often get to know things from a certain point of view. You don't know whether it is true or not, you just know it's what the things the characters want to tell you. This uncertainty is gold. Also, your imagination can tell you things that never could be seen, things that was never even pointed out in the book.

This post is messy. I could go on, but I think I'll just get to my point. I wouldn't say that a book or a movie are on different levels. They are just different, they focus on different things, and their values shouldn't be compared.

But I agree with the important parts of your post, hence the thumb, so I guess this reply is a bit pointless, really.
Whatever.

I agree but in some cases a I prefer a book because it doesn't tell you what it should look like, it gives you some information and lets you paint the picture in your head instead of being shown what everything looks like.

It was made by a gamer grrl on facebook to say she was, like, totally a nerd too.

And you're enabling this behavior.

So that explains why Altair, Ezio, and Connor are all in there. And Dovahkiin too.

Halo 3 will always be something special to me, but Halo 2 was undeniably an absolutely amazing game.

Games have made me, and countless others, better people.

Besides, you are meant to live your life how you want to. There's nothing sad about it.
