The McDonalds game pokes fun at evil corporate giant

In this game, you get to manage the McDonalds corporation. Have fun injecting cows with steroids, destroying rain forest, growing GMO crops, fearing employee organizing, fighting angry consumer groups and angry environmental organizations. You get your own PR firm, advertising firm and nagging board of directors, so you'd better crank out those death burgers.
If you successfully orchestrate the delicate dance of bribing government and health officials, paying for advertising, managing your store and occasionally diseased cows you might win.

After playing this, if you don't feel corrupt as the McDonalds CEO himself, you at least will feel nauseated by the food, steroids and cow shit.
