Default Should I put unpaid game programming experience on my resume?

I have no internships and minimal paid experience (just a part-time tutoring job), and have been out of graduate school for close to 2 years by now, but do have programming experience from a game-related project I've done (and am still doing, though not as much as I used to). Will putting it on my resume be an advantage (as a form of programming experience and example of taking initiative), or a disadvantage (as association with computer games would seem less professional)? Or should I try to use a more generic description to include it without mentioning that it's game-related?

Thank you.

Have you done any programming projects in graduate school? Why not summarize those into your resume?
