Simulation - McDonald's Video Game  - Making money in a corporation like McDonald's is not simple at all! Behind every sandwich there is a complex process you must learn to manage: from the creation of pastures to the slaughter, from the restaurant management to the branding. You'll discover all the dirty secrets that made us one of the biggest companies of the world. This game is not affiliated with the actual McDonalds company and does parody that company. Nonetheless, it also gives a great idea of what it takes to run such a company. There is reference to cow dung using the "s" word so this one should only be used by older students. PG13 or better.
