Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision-Blizzard does not like videogames – or the people who play them. What he does like though is the revenue generated by the people who pay for them. Considering how much he personally made from us last year, it’s easy to see why. The head honcho at the world’s largest evil videogaming mega-corporation – responsible for the Warcraft, Call of Duty and Guitar Hero franchises – made a heck of a lot of money last year.

Forbes, the magazine that focuses on people with far too much money has revealed just how much – and it’s enough to swim in, Scrooge McDuck style. Apparently trying to bully Sony and needlessly increasing game pricing nets you 14 million dollars a year. All you World of Warcraft nuts? Bobby Kotick thanks you.

Were I in his position I’d surround myself with Swedish hookers. and yachts.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • All mega-corporations are evil.
    The hippies say so, so it must be true.

  • easy

    it wasn’t all that long ago that EA were topping the gaming communities most evil list… apart from the grand daddies, MS and Sony (forever shall you be hated for no apparent reason)

    a most fickle industry

    banking is clearly the better industry, with more reasonable salaries and way better consumer ethic :devil:

  • are you a hippie

  • Of course he is, havent you ever met the man?

  • Q121

    I love how we all will bitch and moan… But if we were offered a $15 mil salary a year I can guarentee you that we will all find a way to justify any evil.
