Super Size Me (2004)

Several legal suits have been brought against McDonald's Restaurants that they are knowingly selling food that is unhealthy. Some of the court decisions have stated that the plaintiffs would have a claim if they could prove that eating the food every day for every meal is dangerous. As such, documentarian Morgan Spurlock conducts an unscientific experiment using himself as the guinea pig: eat only McDonald's for thirty days, three meals a day. If he is asked by the clerk if he would like the meal super sized, he has to say yes. And by the end of the thirty days, he will have had to have eaten every single menu item at least once. Before starting the experiment, he is tested by three doctors - a general practitioner, a cardiologist and a gastroenterologist - who pronounce his general health to be outstanding. They will also monitor him over the thirty days to ensure that he is not placing his health into irreparable damage. He also consults with a dietitian/nutritionist and an exercise

People in the U.S.A. may "think" they are buying with a heart and thinking about the poor people in third world countries that they are "helping" BUT....... there is absolutely NO way you can tell who actually stitched that garment, just by looking at the label. I have seen kids in Mexico ten or eleven years old, working in little dirt floor factories. I was sharing that factory with a really BIG brand name retailer, until I made the trip down there, and pulled ALL of my product out of it, then called the other retailer, and told them they had better do the same ! I have also done the same thing in China, Brazil, Philippines, Indonesia, and others, the "key" is catching them in the act ! Because a label that claims the product was made in Factory # 1-347-42, is Sub-Contracted out to these multitude of smaller factories, or even to people working from home (which is Impossible to catch). But any Major Label worth it's salt, will have a team of investigators, that pay surprise visits to the factory, and ask to see the WIP (work in process), they can't show you if it's not there! And, with the exception of a small hand full of Brands, those that produce very small lots of shirts, dresses, tops, shoes, etc. All of the others who produce and sell tens of thousands of product, are all using third world labor.....even IF they don't know it !

So basically a movie about twitter and tumblr warriors who sometimes make some literally-what generic 5 minute long indie walking simulators with a pretentious ''story''.
Nice, i'll consider thinking about it for at least another 5 seconds.

I feel bad for people who is new to game development and have to stare at this abomination and think this is what indie game development looks like. Well, no I haven't watched the the documentary, but by reading this article I can presume it is a drama about first world problems. Well these "devs" are not a good reference for indie developers. While these guys are making drama on twitter, kids are making real money by putting out unfinished games on Steam early access, not to say they are right to do it, but they are much more of indie developers than most of those above. But where is the PC gamer coverage on this? Nowhere to be found, they keep telling us this sad history about indie devs who struggle, and they make games about their feelings and blah blah blah, well hello PC gamer, indie developers are not only these emotionally charged individuals that live on Bay Area.

But if you are an indie developer enthusiast, no this is nothing what indie development is about. Making games is about sitting in the front of a PC screen 10 hours a day, trying to learn new software, how solve technical problems, and finding ways to get your vision done for a game, there is not much drama, actually. Just a lot of hard work.
