McDonald's Video Game

These Weird Guys

One of my PWR students wrote his final paper on the McDonald’s Video Game, a satirical simulation that lets you try your hand at running everyone’s favorite multinational corporate fast food giant. I decided to check it out, and was reading through the game’s tutorial. The game lets you operate four sectors/views of McDonald’s food system — “the farmland, the slaughterhouse, the restaurant, and the corporate HQ.” The most humorous imagine in the tutorial is the view of the corporate office. Here’s a relevant screen cap.

I love these little marketing guys. Weird, indeed.
