Corporation for Public Gaming editorial

A Corporation for Public Gaming (CPG) could be established that would operate on a model similar to its broadcasting equivalent, providing grants to develop a diversity of games for the public good. Like CPB, the goal of the CPG would be to provide high-quality games, which “inform, enlighten and enrich the public.”

I find this idea really interesting. IMO, PBS' Frontline is the best and most professional news program on US TV, far surpassing the "look! something blew up!"-style news coverage of CNN and FOX News. If similar results could be produced for gaming, that'd be pretty cool.
