The article pointed out that we gotta do something about advergame before it become worst. However, we should remember that advergame is a tool for advertising so there is also good and bad sides.

Thank you for posting this article. "Catch them while they're young" huh! McDonalds does this a lot. I feel it's unethical for kids who can't process these games as what they really are - marketing strategy. I still think advergames directed at kids should be brands/products that will advance their health & well-being. e.g. healthy snacks. Advertisers owe this much to society.
