Are video games really seen in a low cultural light?

No, especially with the emergence of xbox kinect video games can be the life of the party and is definitely a way to enchance family game nights.

I know many people including my family that pulls out just dance during get togethers and all age groups join in. The males that I know young and old play the sports and war games even online and I constantly see lines at gamestop when a new popular game is released. I even know some who excercise with wii and xbox.

I don't see where gamers are looked down upon actually it is the opposite most household have a gaming system, here in NYC there is Dave and Buster's and ESPN Zone both are full of men and females of all ages enjoying the video games.

It actually seems to me that video games lately have had far more attention paid to them as pieces of art than soaps ever have. Granted I only play a few a year (I was a big fan of the story based Sierra and LucasArts adventure games as a teen and kid, but that genre's more or less dead now, aside from a few decent games like Heavy Rain and Jane Jenson, a one time Sierra designer, and her self published Gray Matter).
