Is it just here in North America that every other commercial is one for one of these games. Also with some big name celebrity in the commercial?

It's not NA only.
Turn on any sports channel anywhere and there it is. Endless commercials on pay2win garbage falsely advertised as free. I actually stopped watching Eurosport because of those insults.

What happens in P&R stays in P&R … We can shred each other mercilessly in there and still dig each other's music, games, movies, books, and humor out here in the real world …
