The wacky French are at it again

The French government wants to give video games the status of a cultural industry like its music and cinema industries, which are eligible for tax breaks and government support to preserve the cultural heritage of a people proud of their auteur films and passion for the arts.

So what is the government playing at? "I believe that a video game is a true creative work based on a lot of artistic talent, involving script writers, designers and directors," says the Culture Minister, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres.

So the French answer is what some would consider a typically French recipe, blending high culture with lower taxes for French companies, to help them stay in a tough game.

Take it slow and keep your head up. That way you can see the bullshit coming.
And don’t waste my time calling me a racist, cause I aren’t. So there!
