Video game stocks have crushed the market this year and a top Wall Street firm predicts the sector's strong performance will continue.

Credit Suisse shared its best interactive entertainment picks going into earnings season in a note to clients Monday. Analyst Stephen Ju shared why he is still bullish on the sector long term:
