    yeah, that’s walking the line of a sweat shop, probably don’t make much. Besides they’re kept up in their rooms for long amounts of time. Unless your a game programmer or tester, should be something relaxing and fun.

    I have mixed feelings about how to react to this. I think its easy to put NorthAmerican standards on things and see things from an un-informed point of view. The conditions these gamers live in is similar to what Chinese Auto workers do for 8 month stints (considered a good job), 10 hour days doing heavy labour and living dormitory style (i saw a 1 hour doc on tv about that). its just normal over there. These gamers probably think they are doing pretty well seeing as they do games instead of real work!!

    Not all mass-workplaces in developing countries that pay way less than we do are “sweat shops”. I know north american back-packers that actually work in Indian call-centers in-between treks, you see a dollar in India will get you 35 rupees, and 16 rupees can get you a pretty good restaurant meal (i was in India living as a super-budget volunteer/tourist, I could live there for 250$ US a year, problem is the plane ticket!!))

    (cigarette factories in Indonesia, THAT would be a sweat-shop!! i.e. WAY WAY WAY worse)

    I’m not trying to be a jerk about your joke, but that was a seriously ignorant and racially insensitive statement. Also, American Ramen is like scraping the bottom of the barrel as far as instant noodles are concerned… that’s why its so cheap.

    …on a different note

    Wikipedia – Virtual Economies

    MMORPG.org – Why do MMORPG publishers REALLY hate the Chinese Gold Farmer

    CNN – China Restricts Virtual Economies

    Businessweek – Virutal Worlds, Virutal Economies

    Gamestudies.org – On Virtual Economies

    But seriously though, its an unstoppable force. Just look at second life!

    not racist considering im married to an asian women, and i think we should be able to poke fun at all races (not in a mean sense) including mine / your own. im 1/2 itialian and 1/2 german if you want to call me a greasy arian i will laugh right along with you as long as you’re not doing it as a true insult :D

    i think people are too uptight about our racial differences and need to joke about them…as long as its in good fun.

    im not one for political correctness or “racial sensitivity” or any other libreal mindsets but nor would i ever stand for someone really insulting someone based on thier race. i can honestly say that i have very close friends in many races, black, indian, asian, latin… and im certain that none of them would call me racist or insensitive in any way. i think our differences should be celebrated and laughed about not used to take offense.

    I am not a gamer at all, this is a truly alien thing when Faith and Fezzik Showed this to me in June.
    It is so strange, a virtual economy! I cannot comprehend it except in terms of manipulation. Somehow this game: WOW has so many young people in America in chains, big bad virtual chains. and now the effects of it are enslaving young Chinese men as well. The Enemy has so many youth and even grown men addicted to this entertainment. Oh gosh the Enemy is entertaining them to death. many are already dead to this world….aaaaah weird.
    and through a video game. Oh gosh We need Help Jesus!
