I would normally agree in the case of paying lip service

Because a lot of men and women are treating game companies like they are their good, trustworthy friends. I really don't think I have ever seen this phenomenon from the gaming community. They don't see them like any other corporations whose sole purpose is Mut 21 coins only to get your money. If you changed the name from EA to CDPR, strangely enough the remarks here will probably be a lot different. They still release trailers for them? It is Madden, who does not understand what they are getting from the item? Same reason that Coca-Cola still spends a ton of money on advertising, even though everyone understands what Coca-Cola is. (And of course, it's worth noting that there is a reason that everyone knows what Coca-Cola is...) That is the very corporate-ese Ralph Wiggum"I am helping" bullshit I have ever seen. This is because there are far more important things happening and they won't get the clicks and views they have been relying on becoming because people's attention is elsewhere. Haha okay EA, I'm sure this has nothing to do with the cash you would like to create from the sport and everything to do with encouraging the victims of pleasure. There's a lootbox/looting joke in here somewhere.Just because it has the EA name attached to it. Same would happen if it had been Epic or Activision. If CDPR, Valve or some other cherished company did the same, remarks would be wholly different. Edit: Sony did the same and the general reception on these comments are mostly positive. Stay fresh, Reddit. I don't think so. If their primary customer base is African American is does not make sense to market to them right now. As they won't be spending right now, as games isn't on there minds right now. Not about respect imo. More or less they're not moving into the shops immediately to make purchases. Now with use of advertising they could use this as a show of solidarity with this marketplace. Maybe this is the cynical part of me. A wonderful gesture, but aren't these the same people who censored Colin Kaepernick's name from a song in one of the past Madden games?

I will preface this by stating that I do not think it's a bad thing for them to bring awareness to the situation. It is important that it can not just be ignored by looking away from it. With that said, I do hold a certain amount of doubt towards multi-billion buck multinational corporations paying lip service to significant social issues. They are in the best possible place to do more than simply put out a press release or public announcement. Obviously, as a capitalist business they're under no obligation to do so, and it rings hollow when they attempt to stand in solidarity with all the common men and women. Currently there are businesses out there that are doing things and this is the opportunity to highlight those attempts; to show that they're more than simply words.

I would normally agree in the case of paying lip service to social issues without also placing money and support to advocate for change or implementing it to the company and their job at the very least. That said police brutality isn't exactly something that a company like EA throwing money at the problem does much towards fixing. At best they place money towards the attorneys and groups that struggle to see justice after the fact or lobby to get laws changed that at the present government won't. It has systemic issues within authorities of not reporting their particular and holding them accountable rather staying silent and with the authorities unions that allow it all to happen or in ways even encourage it from the consequences being a slap on the wrist followed by being hired in another precinct showing them there is no consequences. Before even getting to legislation and rulings such as qualified immunity which shield abusive cops and permit them to misuse their power . The majority of that EA and most capitalist companies aren't able to perform so much about making it unfair to buy Madden nfl 21 coins say they are in the best possible place to do more.
