Game Theory: Are Your Mobile Games ILLEGAL?

SUBSCRIBE to Never Miss a Theory! ►

I'm sure you've been playing a game or watching a video on your phone when suddenly it is interrupted with an add for a weird and fake looking mobile game. I've seen a lot of channels try out these games to see if they play as advertised, but they haven't covered what I find most interesting about these games. Are they LEGAL? False advertising is a dangerous game, Theorist, so why do these mobile games get away with it? Let's find out!

    Home/Garden scapes are the WORST when it comes to this stuff. They switch their ads everytime some other company has a new idea. I have never seen a Gardenscapes ad that showed the actual game that you would play

    One that I saw is that you would see a woman and a magnifying glass and the magnifying glass would see through the woman's clothes and they would show everything accept her "chest" and at the end it slowly got closer to the woman's "chest" and then the ad would just stop so its basically dragging in thirsty men or thisty 12 year olds (no offense) to play it ad see what happens next. And no kidding after EVERY SINGLE ONE of those ads I would say "Why the hell would you even try."

    If a crime doesn't get prosecuted, it might as well not be a crime at all...? Well, that's why I always tell people to MAKE it a prosecuted, GET IT TREATED like a crime. Even if it's just a written report regarding what happened, it's *the start of a papertrail* and it's a first step. Because if you don't start, that behavior is gonna continue and escalate, until it gets worse and 'too late', and your lack of a first papertrail report means the person cannot be stopped before it goes too far.
