For the record, that’s way cheaper than a movie with popcorn and a drink in NYC, big ass nude so that’s just good money management right there. Since UX should be the concern of everyone, and that a UX strategy and culture cannot be accomplished without having the top management on board, UX practitioners need support, and game studios should define their values and consider having an ethical committee, preferably open to public scrutiny. To prevent users from making actions that could have a negative impact for them (e.g. closing a software after having been working for two hours in it without saving first), it is usually a good practice to increase the “physical load” (i.e. adding a click in the process) via a confirmation screen to ensure that this is really what they wanted to do. The confirmation screen in WoW where players have to type in ‘DELETE’ is good UX: players can spend hours, weeks, months, or even years developing a character, it’s thus important to add extra steps to avoid accidental deletion. Of course, if the character had a sad face or was crying on this screen as the player is about to get rid of it, then we could argue that the emotional guilt trip would make it a dark pattern.

Guilt tripping. For example, when users avoid choosing a paid option or a more expensive one (e.g. a character that cries if players do not buy it, or do not buy gems to keep playing after losing all their lives). And in the case of games that were initially targeted to adults but are rated T for Teens or E for Everyone, and it turns out that many children are playing it, then a reassessment of the monetization technique is necessary if the company cares about ethics. If players are not in the game at a certain time, or do not play enough, they will miss out on something (such as a desirable loot) that is available only for a limited amount of time. Eager to moan louder and brushing the smooth skin, sliding his hardness of his pants and hard enough, saluting, breathing. For example, if the players want to obtain a very desirable item (character, skin, emote, etc.) they have to play everyday for the duration of a season in order to obtain it before it’s gone forever. For example, letting players invest time in a character or environment for free first, then asking them to pay otherwise they will lose all of their progression.

As a result, many studios often copy a business model (e.g. seasons) or feature (e.g. loot boxes) that seemed to work well in a certain game to keep it afloat, without asking themselves if it’s ethical or not. If they care for you they’ll make it work. So, are they adding additional steps to make it harder to delete a character, just like Amazon makes it hard to unsubscribe to Amazon Prime? And if these games are targeted to children or teenagers I would argue that it’s more clearly unethical given that, as I mentioned earlier, this population does not have a mature prefrontal cortex which makes it harder for them to resist temptation. In fact, videogames were found not to be associated with aggressive behavior in teenagers (not even among “vulnerable” populations). There is a common concern that violent videogames can make players more aggressive in real life. Her family have told of the torment she has been going through during the investigation into the father of her child and the sordid details of his double life it uncovered. Web turns into a necessary piece of our life and we can’t really think an existence without it nowadays. Whether you like being an angel or a devil in the bedroom, you can find a Valentine’s Day piece to entice your partner today or all year long.

Are videogames exploiting our brain limitations for the sole purpose of making benefits at the expense of players’ well being? This is why UX practitioners, while not solely responsible for being the guardians of ethical practices, can raise awareness and point out possible unethical practices when they spot them, in the same way that they are advocating for accessibility, inclusion, and fair play in games. Companies who think about users first, in a win-win mindset (beneficial to both users and the business), then they are leaning towards a UX strategy and culture.
