Treating us like criminals

 

 

Cordova, TN; September 3, in the year of our Lord 2018--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is addressing an important issue in the video game industry. Too often there are too many video game companies that treat their customers like criminals. We have talked about the manipulative control freak nature of too many of these companies. Maybe they do not like streamers and Youtubers. Maybe they want to squeeze every dollar out of their games and demand to get paid for used video game sales. Recently Family Friendly Gaming reviewed a game where the video game publisher would not let us play the game unless we gave them our account username and password. Actually they do that to all people who purchase that game. Why?

The only thing anyone of us at Family Friendly Gaming can think is to make sure no one makes videos of their game. If you make a video of their game, they can go into your account and removed it. That kind of freaky control does not belong in the hands of any video game company. As the years progress these companies are getting bolder with their control freak ideas. Not enough gamers are standing up to them. Family Friendly Gaming has stood up to them for years. We have been punished a variety of ways for standing up for you the consumer. We believe in consumers rights here at Family Friendly Gaming. We believe when you buy a video game it is your property. You can use it how you see fit as long as you are not copying it and selling those copies to others. Where are the other gaming media outlets on this?

The silence from the other gaming media outlets is deafening. It is shocking and stunning. I wonder if they are cowards who fear companies black listing them. If every gaming media outlet stood up against this evil the video game companies would have to reverse their policies. How can they punish all gaming media outlets? After all they need us to get the word out about their games. They need us to make more money. If the video game companies abusing power black listed every single gaming media outlet they would see a drastic drop in sales. Plus objectivity might return to too many of the bought off gaming media outlets. This would improve the video game industry, and the image of the gaming media outlets. What do you think? Is it time to stand up to abuses from the video game companies? Is this part of the swamp of corruption in the video game industry?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.


God bless,
