I don't get his complaint at all. In-game advertising is a cynical money grab and annoying to those who already paid for the game (obviously exempting F2P games). Having characters, planets, or other things named after the largest donors (without whom the game very likely would have never been made) isn't the same at all. I don't get his reference to socialism at all either.

It truly seems odd. Art, Games, and participation in game development I don't see as an issue of equality.

Game Developers usually just name things however they'd like, no one is demanding that power is given to the people. All of the arguments he would make against a kickstarted game would apply to the traditional publisher model, but I don't see him taking issue with it or expecting others to do the same.

All of the 'points' just fall flat for several reason, the most outstanding reason being that luxury goods part of a luxury service don't really determine social equity. At least, not in the way he seems to imply.

The only valid point he makes is P2W games are lame, but I think most people were already aware of that.
