there is still no meaningful unionisation of game developers, and still no widespread insistence on or expectation of reasonable working hours. [/quote:9a53dda308]

This is a major mis-conception that people have. In the UK game developers can join BECTU (Broadcasting Entertainment Cinematography and Theatre Union). So while there is no union solely for game developers, there is a union they can join if they so wish.
As for the hours…if a company forces you to do them with no pay, you leave…they’ll soon get the point. Lots of companies are paying overtime now, one way or another…
