Lately I’ve seen ads for games about making money that feature Trump or a parody of Trump. It’s only a few, but the only similarly frequent theme is the ’ my score vs. mom/rookie/dad/etc. score’*.
Trump is a very controversial figure right now, so why would a game developer (an industry which is insanely competitive with lots of companies forming and closing down every week) risk alienating vast swaths of their potential audience like this?
I can’t imagine there are Trump fans who will play a game just because he’s featured in it (or something that could be him, anyway). However, I do know quite a few people who won’t have anything to do with a product that shows Trump in a positive light (or even non-negative).
Please, leave the politics out of this discussion. Let’s just accept that a lot of people think he’s one of the worst humans ever ( the circles I tend run in), while others think he’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
