"The video game industry might end up shutting down indefinitely if negotiations with SAG-AFTRA fall through."

LMAO. Clickbait bullshit. Gaming isn't going anywhere.

"Indefinitely" just means we don't know how long the strike would last. Considering the studios they're targeting, this would severely impact both Sony and Microsoft's first- and third-party releases and push back a lot of games.

They're not wrong, they're just being inflammatory.

Anyway I support the union and hope the studios meet their demands for fair compensation and protections against AI voice sampling and facial capturing.

Same. I would not be cool giving away my voice and likeness to be replicated by AI, for a studio to use indefinitely, while i get paid for one day. Actors and Voice Actors need to be protected from this

the only thing more ridiculous than letting these strikes continue is these click bait titles. lots of games will be affected but there will always be games that don't require actors or voice actors.

"shutting down indefinitely"
Gaming isn't going nowhere , this affect nobody but the greedy companies who refuses to pay and give union actors the respect that they deserve and this is a good thing for the industry that there's finally justice for those who does VA for a living and get shafted by companies .. so far Capcom has done it the worst and a lot of voice actors for iconic Resident evil characters came out speaking about Capcom greedy practices picking cheap non-union voice actors and replacing them against union voice actors out of spite
