    compound phrases in English that become common or idiomatic tend to follow the path of "two words with space -> two words with hyphen -> one word"

    it doesn't happen 100% of the time, but usually when a phrase remains as two words or a hyphenate it's because they're overly long or the letter combination is weird (e.g. double vowels) or it's a non-noun part of speech

    in other words, if it's not videogames now it will be eventually motherfuckers, give in to inevitability

    This will be the thing that drives me apart from the younger generations. Their strange music and their refusal to put the space in between the two words.

    It will always be videogames in my mind. Anyone who disagrees can fight me in single combat. Loser dies. Winner gets to continue to use the term of their preference.

    4chan says it's "vidya", so that's probably where it's going to end up.

    When I was... a young boy... I was so disappointed by the label of "gaming" on places with slot machines. "Gambling machines are not gaming!" young me protested. Boy, did video games prove me wrong.

    "Video Games" is what's written on electronic gaming's birthing certificate, but to their close friends, they go by "vidyah".

    In 2021 we will retire the term "video game". We will only refer to them as "Bubsys" after the only remaining legal video game, Bubsy.
