I'm a fan of both.

As I get older (i'm 34) I tend to prefer photography over video games, because you're able to go outside and enjoy the world and see new things.

Video games these days, though impressive, take way too long to complete and are nowhere as fun as they used to be. Also, the fanbase is often very young while photographers are more my age and have a variety of things to talk about. Video games, online, is a random crapshoot of swearing juveniles.

However, I'm glad I kept my SNES games in mint condition. Their value keeps going up, especially as we head out of the "physical game disc/cartridge" paradigm and into "cloud gaming".
