I think this topic is skewed if you come from the perspective of the gaming industry. Just about everyone I know who plays game, wants to have a job playing games.... Everyone who actually writes software for a living knows that is not what we do, but as long as the idea that working for a game company is somehow more exciting than writing line of business code... you'll have an unbalanced demand to work at those companies. I've known a few people in the game industry, and you only make good money if you are one of the starters, the rest don't make a lot of money or get treated very well because there are a million replacements ready to take your job.
If you want better pay/treatment, leave the game industry.
Just my two cents.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
