Moreover, it is quite a common practice, which simply does not speak, preferring to remain silent. Union of game developers, as such, no: there is nobody to complain, so nothing will change. However, the desire to make faster and cheaper has led to the fact that games have become worse: people begin depression, families are ruined, spoiled health, loss of joy of life. All this is reflected in what they do. So, if you also want to go to the game developers, think three times before to make a choice.
