This is why I don't like monetization schemes. Idiots at EA Games have been caught red-handed and now they are asking to get sent to slaughter. Any company that employs any form of Micro-transactions on any 60$ game should be held accountable for pulling stunts like EA did at the UK Parliament with the statement of "Surprise Mechanics".. WTF?! Rot in Hell EA. ROT IN HELL. That goes for other Dev Companies too. 100% in agreement with this youtuber.

Well, it's pretty simple.
If you are not LLC, you are already dead. Because you don't exactly choose investors, plus investors decide the fate (Even if they got "non-voting" shares, nothing prevents them crushing the price of company by dumping batches of shares as sign of protest if things don't go their way) and investors mostly care about ROI, not the product made in the process of generating profit.

This continues to get worse. The Publishers and Developers continue to get caught and they keep acting so dumb. They really don't get it. If they care about their "Indefinite Growth", They would be smart to stop this crap right now but we have idiots like Andrew Wilson aka (scumbag) and several others who are just want to suck customers dry as there are evidence that states that its exactly what they been trying to do.

Just stop blaming companies for these cheap tactics, no one forces people to buy this stuff, yet they buy it in enough masses to make it a valid monetarization Modell, Blame people with too many money wasting it on such nonsense.
Not a Single development studio would spent time to code such nonsense if there weren't any money in return.

Thanks to EA and other "triple AAA" publishers/ developers. State control of rampant, predatory monetazation in games are unavoidable.
The electronic entertainment association or whatever that rules over many known gaming companies, are led by greedy suits, which dont care the SLIGHTEST about peoples gambling problems and want to see the companies squeeze you dry for money in any ways possible. Rich get richer. Rampant capitalism is not constructive at all.

This shits happens when the gaming/ entertainment industry cant regulate themself!

Letting the states regulate, seeeems like a good idea, coming senseful gamers to the rescua against ravenous publishers and developer lackeys..
Until you realize that many state heads can be oblivious and have little to no experience what gaming and its environment is like, besides playing some obscure "game" on their smartphone thats just built like a slot machine, trendy time wasters. In effect making things worse if they dont know what the hell they are doing.

EA
Activision
Ubisoft
2K
Ten Cent
Rockstar
Bethesda

I advocate all I know to NEVER buy from thes but some are sadly oblivious and cloud minded to care. Still I dont buy, hope that counts for something, hah!

The lists grows bigger, these companies needs to get their "kneecaps" shot of. I want them to fall hard. Yes, loss of jobs, but those employees scared to lose their jobs due to bad working environment and exploitation may find other fairer gaming studios or create new one from the ashes.

I advocate for everyone to buy the stuff that they like!
I'm not gonna hold myself down because of gambling addicts and incompetent parents.
This SJW boycott behavior may be your cup of tea but most gamers don't want that bull they just wanna play games that's fun for them.

Dont misunderstand me Alexandra. Im all for people choosing what they want, but they could be a bit more aware, have a bit of background check on any developer, publisher. So they dont get hooked unto and ripped. To "advocate" might have been a wrong word to use, advise to would be better.

Dont get me started on the SJW nonsense going on in media, it infuriates me as much as facists/ those racist facists fearmongering. And whats mind boggling that peepes over the pond dont want/ dont know the difference between socialist and liberalists.. You can have social liberals, social conservative, conservative capitalists ( state capitalism ), liberal capitalist ( free marketeers ) And a blend of em.

Im all for socialism but certain groups are just nuts and tarnish what it means, ****** and misusing definitions ifor their own gains.
SWJ are forceful in regards of equality and diversity, and hilariously enough are racist against whites/ males and get totally ballistic if they dont get what they want. Equality and diversity needs to come naturally, in the mean time the rights to say equal wages and such needs to be implemented stage by stage and not bum rushing it all, at the cost of sanity. Creating fear to change the order of things, be it extreme left, right, up or down or whatever.

I often watch videos of Laymen gaming ,YongYea, Jim Sterling, Geeks & Gamers, Upper Echelon gaming, Angry Joe and some others. And their reports on SWJ nonsense and ravenous out of control capitalism including making people addicted to gambling, no matter the cost is kinda terrifying..

Parents indeed have their work cut out for them to teach children about what they are getting into. And gambling addicts need to be shielded against those who want to exploit them like cattle.
