That’s funny, I don’t ever recall teaching my child that name brands are important. It annoys me how this game lacks the number of options people have in real life. I could very well get name brand shoes from a discount store for much less than $100 (if I even wanted to get my child the name brands).
While this game tries to show what it’s like having a very low income, it continues to put a negative stereotype towards being poor. It points shame in the direction of poor people and the message I get is, “if you’re poor, people will look down upon you,” which I think is untrue and efforts should be made to promote the opposite. I personally think that being poor can have some positive aspects. Examples:
- Many college students/graduates, after being broke at some point or another, learn ways to manage their expenses.
- When you’re poor, you don’t have the means to buy into consumerism and so you avoid buying shit that you don’t need. When you’re not surrounded by shit you don’t need, you can focus on more important things in life.
So while I think this game is interesting, I think it’s incredibly biased and negative.
I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
