Economist Paul Krugman wrote that prior to the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, all the pizza shops in New Jersey had their TVs locked on CNBC for its up-to-the-minute financial coverage. As much as any other analytic, this told Krugman that the stock market was overheated manipulated.
A parallel observation to Krugman’s in the present time has to do with politics in video games, as reported by Hype Break, which says that unlike its competitors, Bioware and Riot Games, Ubisoft chose to rebuff political activists seeking to politicize their games. They chose instead not to alienate customers on the other side of the political spectrum.
Some may be surprised to hear that not even video games are safe from the depredations of the Full Spectrum Dominance PC Police but largely unknown to most who aren’t professionally involved is that video games are a much, much bigger and more profitable business than Hollywood.
