It's a debate that's at least as old as our 2005 poll on the subject
(which ended in a statistical dead heat
) -- should the term "video game" be one word or two. Copy editors
, and journalists
have all weighed in on the subject (as well as a certain book author
and blogger). Now, finally, we have an official answer from a well-respected, authoritative source: the fine fellows over at College Humor
The video does a great job of skewering the self-importance of those that obsess over such a pointless argument (present company included). But then they link to an official petition
(currently down) that purports to support College Humor's preferred, one-word spelling. Are they taking themselves too seriously, or is it just another layer of the meta-joke? We report, you decide.
