Forced Ads Need to Stop

 

 

Cordova, TN; August 14, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is requesting a clean up in aisle video games. Too many companies are forcing too many ads on gamers and families. The Wii U Gamepad will flash blue and use up what little battery power it has to try and get owners of the system to see an advertisement. This happens on a nearly weekly basis from Nintendo. It needs to stop, and stop right now. This kind of invasion is offensive to many gamers, and many families. If Nintendo wants to advertise to us, they need to pay us for our time. Not take our money and then try to get us to spend even more money on them thanks to their invasive and generally despised advertisements.

Forza Horizon 2 does something even more insidious than the Wii U. An advertisement banner comes up on the screen and partially blocks the view of the screen. That is until the family member goes into the advertisement and watches it. Going into the advertisement and quickly backing out does not remove the advertisement banner. This is horrible. Again families and gamers are not being paid to be shown this Microsoft advertisement. It is another example of video game companies and their unpaid invasive advertisements. This also needs to stop. Family Friendly Gaming has not been able to discover any opt-out options of these invasive video game company advertisements.

An advertisement in a football game, basketball game, baseball game, soccer game, or other sport is part of the stadium or coliseum. After all that is exactly how that court or field actually looks. That is one thing. Those advertisements are part of the background and actually help fund the development of the video game. The invasive advertisements from these companies is something entirely different. The only way Family Friendly Gaming found to get rid of them is to keep the systems disconnected from the Internet. That way these companies can not push down the invasive advertisements that they pay families and gamers nothing for. All the while trying to brainwash all of us out of more of our money. Don’t they have billions enough in the bank? Haven’t they fleeced consumers enough with their greed?


God bless,
