Videogame Executives Are Pointless Parasites (The Jimquisition)


The sheer amount of money hoarded by videogame executives is astounding, especially when you're constantly told that videogames are too expensive to make.


Bobby Kotick just "halved" his pay, but is still in line to make hundreds of millions of dollars on top of the billions he has, and CD Projekt RED's five board members just gave themselves enough money to cover over 800 people. The way in which this money is accumulated is often corrupt in and of itself.


Meanwhile, employees are abused and underpaid. Videogames cut more corners and add more predatory economies. We're told there's not enough money, but the truth is there's MORE than enough. It's just constantly sucked out of the industry by parasites.
