If the economy is so bad, why do we spend so much on junk?

Video-Game Industry Sales Slow In July -- InformationWeek OK, so the record-setting pace, has slowed to a record-setting pace.
Video-game sales in U.S. retail stores rose 28% from July 2007 to $1.19 billion, and console sales were up 17% to $446.9 million, the NPD Group reported. For the overall market, which also includes sales of software and accessories, sales for June rose to $2.4 billion from $1.9 billion a year ago.
I suppose if we can't afford to drive to work, we may as well stay home and play video games.
