In this week’s episode, Sonny broaches the topic of China and gaming with Colin Moriarty, founder and CEO of Last Stand Media, the world’s most popular fan-funded gaming podcast network, co-host of Sacred Symbols: A PlayStation Podcast, and 20-year veteran of the game industry. Colin has first-hand experience in this field as a game developer and tells a pretty interesting story about the chilling effect China can have on the art of gaming. Furthermore, there is much to consider about the dangers of mergers and consolidation. Does the government have a role to play in preventing Chinese Communist Party-controlled companies like Tencent from dominating the gaming space? Should the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States play a stronger role? These are some of the questions we ask, but don’t necessarily have answers to, in this week’s episode.
