Capitalism would have been a fine economic system if people were different. But people are people, so a system that's so easily exploitable will be exploited. That's just how it is.

This touches on why I enjoy Le Carre novels, and BBC movies based on them so much more than the explosion and killing a minute, what Le Carre has said "films reduced to primal grunts and groans", current major films. Now it is of course possible for game designers to create games that value intellect, cunning and adult like scientific patience and self control that enables defeating enemies and major real world problems. But that would create a generation of intellectually engaged children and young adults who would do math and science in vast numbers, and so negate the exuse for our 1% for importing millions of immigrant STEM's they use as mercenary pawns to kill middle class wages. So no, we will not see games that value thought over irrational emotion filled violence - that like most current media is designed to make the populace non-critical dumbed down vulnerable consumers of high profit margin junk, made with overseas slave labor. A populace unable to figure out and oppose all manner of manipulation and deceit used by our uber leaders to squeeze ever more wealth and power out of us - like the post- medieval serfs, that chop each other up in sword and hatched fantasy games.
