Op Ed

  • IGN - Former Blizzard Developer and ArenaNet, Undead Labs Founder: "We Need Unionization."
    "During my 25 years working alongside talented developers, I’ve heard hundreds of profoundly disturbing stories about their industry experiences. I’ve also seen this cycle repeat itself numerous times, across multiple companies throughout our industry. There has certainly been some positive change, and I do believe many developers and publishers — even large ones — are working in good faith to improve. But those efforts, while commendable, can’t address the chronic issues in our industry systemically. In order to do that, game industry employees need advocacy and representation.

    We need unionization."

Fuck that, unions will only make the industry worst and make the cost of games go way up.

Yes, the cost of products tends to go up when the people who make them are paid appropriately and given proper workplace conditions. For example, products that aren't made by child slaves in Malaysia cost less than products made somewhere like China. Products made in China cost less than products made in the US.
