There’s no ‘one size fits all’ take when you’re dealing with millions of diverse gamers

It’s a good explanation on what is really going on with that. It’s not a good regulation, but it isn’t some Orwellian thing like I’ve been seeing people say either.

Not to mention people will just use their mum’s ID.

I’m hopeful that no games means people will go outside and services will cater to that, but in reality I expect more singleplayer and offline games.

That is kind of the point. More offline games is fine. There’s no ban on those now. Under the new regs there’s nothing preventing you from downloading and playing an offline game. Or installing MAME and playing a million classic video games. Or even hosting a LAN party at your home.

All that’s been lost is the Skinner Box games ruthlessly tuned with the assistance of psychologists and sociologists to target malleable minds with the generation of addictive personality disorders.
