    Sometimes the most entertaining aspect of these games are the actual reviews.

    It would be interesting if bum was a playable class in MMO's.

    Some of those people make good money.  Have cars and homes.  Lots of YT videos calling people out, scamming for handouts.

    Not talking about the ones with mental illness, PTSD, or have had really tough breaks.

    Vast majority have substance abuse/addiction issues and spend all money on food first (yes not drugs and booze but those usually come 2nd after food).

    Very few are able to hold onto their money and save it for cars and homes.

    82% of panhandlers are homeless - the rest live in assisted housing. 

    So those that are "well off with houses and cars and are faking it" is a really tiny fraction of a percent - an exception and not the rule.

    So when you say "some of those people" you are talking about a complete anomaly.

    A Youtubers life after de-monetization

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Some have commented that it may not be right making fun out of what is an appalling life. I think of it as educational, get no qualifications, learn no skills and here is where you can end up.

    I used to think like this, until a couple of years ago when my youngest daughter dragged (at the time it was dragged, I really didn't want to get involved to be honest) me into helping out at a Christmas Meal for homeless people at the local church.  You should try doing something similar, think of it as educational ;)

    You would be surprised how many homeless people are educated to a decent standard and skilled but have through circumstantial changes in their lives, fallen through the cracks in society.

    Yes, but if you just sit on your arse in school you greatly increase the chance your life will have such a poor outcome. That is not to say misfortune will never bring someone low.

    Of course but that doesn't make the game educational, lets be honest, using the word Bum in the title tells you that the game isn't going to educate anyone on the plight of the homeless

    I guess its a matter of perception and perspective. As a non American, I could look at the much publicised mass shootings in the US and think oh I guess all Americans must be like that.

    Or I could use my common sense and see that there are good and bad elements to every part of society. Certainly in the UK, these type of false beggars (yes they do exist) are in the minority.

    There are many here who cover up the fact they are completely ignorant with spouting shocking BS.  As far as a game like this goes it is in bad taste and do not understand why anyone would play it but to each their own.

    Why do people play FPS games that are nothing more than murder simulators? We could question a lot of things gamers do but the bottom line is, most of it is for entertainment purposes.

    It's a difficult situation to be sure.  A lot of people are just a few paychecks away from being homeless if they don't have family to take them in after layoffs.  A serious illness that's not covered by insurance can take away a persons life savings and home in the U.S.  Things really got bad when the government started closing down state run mental health facility, forcing the mentally ill into the streets.

    It's sometimes hard to tell a persons real situation just by looking.  Even people who run surveys can be lied to by scammers thus skewing polling results.  Not an easy problem to solve.
