The Game Theorists

SUBSCRIBE to Never Miss a Theory! ►
I'm sure you've been playing a game or watching a video on your phone when suddenly it is interrupted with an add for a weird and fake looking mobile game. I've seen a lot of channels try out these games to see if they play as advertised, but they haven't covered what I find most interesting about these games. Are they LEGAL? False advertising is a dangerous game, Theorist, so why do these mobile games get away with it? Let's find out!

I have a six y/o brother that's barely learning how to play games on the phone and he downloads EVERY game he sees on an add because he thinks it's gonna be something different. So far i think he gave two phones (Both of my parents') viruses because of it so yeah, i think they should fix that.

There are two reasons convergent evolution occurs. First, because there are physical constraints--there are only so many ways to fly through the air, and fluid dynamics dictates that if you want to go fast in the water you need to have a certain shape. Second, because you're copying something else--the king milk snake looks a lot like a coral snake because doing so keeps the milk snake safe. A bit of both is likely going on here. Regarding the first, the type of user that's going to spend money on in-app purchases in a game like this is likely not a very broad segment of the population. There are likely key psychological aspects you can target. We're all familiar with Skinner Boxes, but it goes deeper than that. Second, these development companies are keeping an eye on each other. If I see that your app is doing well, I'm going to copy it--why waste my money when I can outsource my R&D to you? This means that the actual amount of R&D going into this stuff is likely much smaller than we would otherwise expect.

Thank god, finally someone addresses those issue. I have been wondering how this is legal for a LONG time now.

They do bad ads intentionally. Kefir's Last Days on Earth and Frostborn have weird ads, but they're actually good games.

For apps that are currently compatible, but the ad software is stuck in 2016, PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ADS TO 2021! Also, make them skippable, or I will buy something to disable ads

Can we also talk about how sexist these ads are? guys get these ads with saving people or epic worlds with epic battles, while we girls get sultan palace dramas where we're supposed to backstab everyone to become queen and take care of random children found on the street. Idk, it could be just me, but I'm not into that youtube! stoopid.

The false advertisement may not been monetarily detrimental to the consumers, but such as the case of Project Awakening, surely it would be to the producers of the actual content? Same with banished And if false advertising is effectively just allowed, then what’s the point of having it be a law in the first place when literally nothing is done about it? Like it takes the ENGLISH authority to be the only one to do anything, against something that violates AMERICAN Federal Trade laws I get that we’re better with, well a lot of things it seems, but it just seems so stupid to do nothing, if not surprising they don’t just make it fine able to do so and take for themselves a cut of the revenue

The worst ones are the ones with fake Xs in the corner. You think you're closing the ad, but it actually takes you to the download page. Once I accidentally clicked one of these and it actually straight up downloaded the game right there. Didn't even open the play store or anything. It just installed another app from inside the first app. Needless to say, I uninstalled both pretty quick.

Honestly Google Play Store should be more active in policing the content. Be it the blatant false advertising to the hundreds of games that steal existing game graphics to use for their Play Store icons.

It surprises me mat didnt talk about the gambling ads. Gambling was stopped in pokemon because well it advertised just that to children. Do the ads about gambling not do the same, especially if they're those super fake ones showing fake PayPal accounts getting fake money (and then sometimes a person irl with a lot of money.) This sounds illegal in every way
