All business investment is inherently risky, I don't think the video game sector is especially worse than some others, whether that's banks or start-up companies. If you are elected to bring in work and encourage businesses then one of the ways you can do that is by making loans, and in the UK at least the video game sector is considered a good asset to support as we generate a lot of employment and exports through it.
