Just found a nice quote from the Chesterton story I noted a few minutes ago. It's the mysterious character, describing the limitations of a certain cultural product:

""It has continually struck us that there is no element in modern life that is more lamentable than the fact that the modern man has to seek all artistic existence in a sedentary state. If he wishes to float into fairyland, he reads a book; if he wishes to dash into the thick of battle, he reads a book; if he wishes to soar into heaven, he reads a book; if he wishes to slide down the banisters, he reads a book."

Replace "book" with "computer game."
