I'm sure you've been playing a game or watching a video on your phone when suddenly it is interrupted with an add for a weird and fake looking mobile game. I've seen a lot of channels try out these games to see if they play as advertised, but they haven't covered what I find most interesting about these games. Are they LEGAL? False advertising is a dangerous game, Theorist, so why do these mobile games get away with it? Let's find out!

I do enjoy watching theory videos, makes me realise that I'm not so strange to research the loving bajesus out of something. One game theory(ies) that I haven't seen you and the team cover yet is the Little Nightmares series, there's another youtuber who has done ALOT of work on this is Tericho, but I think you could give a different view to his... Anyways, yes banished is a good game to chill out whilst playing there's also Chef

To be honest for me before downloading a game I would check if there was a gameplay of it that way would i know excatly what the game had in store even if the developers were lying about the content in the ads

And that’s exactly why I turned off targeted ads. Since then my RUvid is experience improved by a lot. No more cringy ads that make me want to die 🥰

Anyone remember when those static ads up on the top right were all nude fnf characters with amogus pop its blocking a small snippet of it? Ya just gotta love RUvid’s hypocrisy when it comes to ads.

Wait, Mobile game ads appear on RUvid? All I get are ad “Smoking is bad” ads, movie trailers, and sometimes ads with that is MatPat! I never watch any ads and I keep forgetting to watch the ones that has Mat in them.

Aren't there also anti-gambling laws? Most of these mobile games are basically gambling apps with gameplay thrown over it.

This is fax I saw a roblox mobile ad and it was nothing compared to actual gameplay they made millions of the game and they did that that’s rubbish

6:16 biology is completely different from human behavior. What happened is that they saw how profitable the first guys who did those fake ads were and decided to copy their homework. Or perhaps they're all being done by the same contractor.

If they aren't illegal, they should be. And places that show ads should be legally required to police the ads they show.

That and the ads are rotated out fast enough that by the time one is caught, its out of use. There is a bit more on other facets of mobile advertising here: ruvid.net/video/video-61PzqMLUf14.html. He does bring up points that this one hasn't, though its a bit outdated now.

9:29 same with RUvid, people take someone's video and use it as their own. not even putting something new, but some fail, some don't.

Yeah like garden scapes literally could’ve made an add out of a recording of them playing the game instead of making a whole new add. It would’ve been better for us and easier for them.

The worst things they do are not the ads for games. It takes just a couple downloads to figure out that they are all lying anyway. It's the rigged gambling RNG inside of the games to milk whales and every one else.

games like those are all just cash grabs nothing more nothing less thats why they do the can u solve this and do it wrong so u want to beat all levels but there never what u want it to be and game theory is the best

Anyone else here get ads which have narration? I've seen so many of those it's actually hurting my brain to the point were I go "Yeah yeah sure your games great NOW GET OFF MY BLOODY SCREEN I'M TRYING TO WATCH MINECRAFT" or whatever game I'm trying to watch when I get one. At least on computer I can have an adblocker and on console these ads don't show up at all! Anyways, thanks mobile ads for being cringey nonsense you are. JUST KIDDING, GET YOUR COMPANIES TERMINATED! If you can't tell, I hate these ads. I haven't seen one in a long time though, so there's that.

I started playing gardenscapes back when it had actual ads showing gameplay and made me interested in the "build a cute garden" aspect. I stopped playing at some point when the stages got too difficult and it felt like I would've needed to pay for powerups to get through them. I was pretty damn confused when I first saw one of their newer nightmare ads, like "why are they torturing the wholesome butler character D:" which made my already lessened interest plummet to zero.

At one point a saw an ad advertising a ripoff Minecraft game, and they showed a Minecraft youtube video from an actual RUvidr!! (This one in particular by Portemay ruvid.net/video/video-mEIqOiEwJJ4.html )

I report all the games as offensive. Since as a gamer I feel qualified to say it's offensive to my culture to try and pass that stuff off as a real game.

I use the RUvid app a lot, so I see these ads. A LOT. But, suprisingly, since moving to Sweden, about a month ago, I have not seen a single one. Before I saw at least one a day. Thought I’d share.
