Movies, TV and CGI Can't Post

There has been a lot of talk first and last about the CGI in the Hobbit films and CGI in films in general. Seemingly people are concerned that movies are starting to look like giant video games and that this is a bad thing. Once upon a time TV was considered the poor step-child of movie. But now some of the best stuff is done on TV. The comparison to video games is the same. The scorn that a movie receives because it looks like a video game says that video games are a poor step-child to movies. But is that true? Is there a straight line evolution from movies to TV to video games? Are these questions worth discussing?
