Attention Gamers: You're getting played.
The video game industry is a capitalist marvel, four times bigger than movies, five times bigger than radio. They rake in $160B a year and have plenty of juicy profits for shareholders. And yet, almost every video game you've ever played is a communist regime.
That's right we said it. Video game companies play hard in a capitalist world and win. But the worlds they build for you, dear gamer, are more communist than North Korea.
Sure you can buy things in Fortnite. That seems capitalist enough. But think about it. Everything you buy in Fortnite is planned by Fortnite, manufactured by Fortnite and sold by Fortnite. Chairman Mao never dreamed of such total control.
Worse, when you turn over your hard earned greenbacks you don't actually own anything at all. That sweet banana skin you just bought... you don't own it. Don't believe us? Try to sell it. Try to take it off Fortnite and use it somewhere else.
It's a state of madness and like the citizens of any good communist state, we're so used to waiting on line for toilet paper that we don't notice anything is wrong.
