The 10 Most Heinously Corporate Videogames

"Consumer culture is a mixed blessing. We have cool gadgets, free network TV and junk food available at every whim. This utopia comes with a hefty price tag, though, and it's not just free will or individuality or whatever the hippies like to argue - it's awful videogames. Capitalism is alright most of the time and gamers understand that their precious platforms ain't a charity - it's all about supply and demand, which is why historically, the number of games touting established licenses practically merits its own genre.

i actually owned Mick and Mack on genesis. It was fun as hell, and the product placement was minimal. At the end of each stage Ronald would show up and it would rain mini arches. It was a good game with Mcdonalds tacked on.
