I agree, but it's interesting that you don't give a shout out to the Grand Theft Auto series, which really opened the doors for video games to become the 'moral panic medium' of the 2000s with everything surrounding GTAIII around 2001.

You could really add to your argument with the dominance mount that happened this summer: "A few Hollywood producers have set precedent by beginning to browse video-game release dates to check for conflicts due to Grand Theft Auto IV's potential harm to the May 2, 2008 release of Iron Man." (from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_game_consoles_(seventh_generation) )
