By now (unless you have been living under a very large rock) I’m pretty ducking sure you will have heard that Donald Trump, will be the next president of the United States. He will be inaugurated as president on, the 20th January 2017. But what will it mean for the gaming industry?
Trump is no stranger to controversy and rash comments over a wide range of topics, and gaming is no different. He often takes to twitter to voice his opinions and back in December 2012 he tweeted this about video game violence:
“Video game violence & glorification must be stopped—it is creating monsters!”
The debate around violence in the video game industry has been raging for a very long time now. But President-elect Trump’s views are on very shaky scientific ground. Although Trump will become president next year, don’t expect him to make any big changes to the industry. He will have bigger issues to deal with.
Plus he might have forgotten, but we haven’t – he was happy to make a deal with Activision back in 2002 to licence his name for a game: ‘Trump’s real estate tycoon’ the player’s goal was to beat Donald Trump by becoming the most influential business magnate.
Are you a Monster?
