I don't get the problem
Just because you don't like the game doesn't mean somebody else can't. Air Control is cool.

The problem is - this costs real money. If Air control was free there would be no problem.
you just don't like planes

I have to agree with OP here slightly. Air Control is only a problem because of the people in the community making it a problem. Now, I'm not supporting this game, but I'm just saying that sitting here screaming "OMG THIS GAME IS TRASH, COSTS REAL MONEY, COPYRIGHT OMG" isn't doing anything. Trust me, everybody knows. Nobody is going to take this game seriously. In fact, what people are doing is giving it MORE publicity, which results in more people buying it (buying it as a joke, gifting it to a friend for a laugh, etc). That's where the saying comes from, "Any publicity is good publicity." The negative reviews are already out there; no need to keep spreading them. Any smart consumer will do research before their purchase and see all the negative reviews and hopefully won't touch this game.

Steam's marketplace isn't forcing anybody to buy anything. Ignoring it is much more powerful than spamming the forums. Reporting it may have been necessary in the beginning, but Valve already knows the community dislikes this game, and hopefully they're aware and investigating the cases of copyright infringement. The best thing to do as of now is just to forget about this game.

I totally agree with this whole post. Now, I wrote a positive review for Air Control, but I really do understand the problem some people have with this game, at least originally. I was told after writing the review that the Greenlight page for Air Control did not drop any hints that it was the sort of absurd game it actually is and only showed screenshots that would be passable for a real flight sim. That page doesn't exist anymore, and I can't find an archive of it anywhere, but I'll take his word for it. If people bought this game only knowing that information and without any of the screenshots or videos that are available now, then yes, I can see why you'd be upset, and rightly so.

So, if that's all true, and the game was originally fraudulent in that regard, then it deserved to be reported, which it has. But here we are, months later. The game is exposed for what it is; a bizarre parody of simulation games. It's in the screenshots, in the trailer, and has a let's play of it linked to on its news page. For better or worse, it doesn't look like Air Control is going away, but at least people who might buy it now can make an informed decision based on the reviews, screenshots, and countless youtube videos.

But the response to this game everywhere just seems to be so apoplectic that of COURSE people are going to want to try this out. This is the angriest I've ever seen the internet get about a video game, and that's gonna draw attention. At this point, what's done is done: the game's sitting there in all of its dumb glory, and if people want to buy it now, they should damn well know what they're in for after all of this. It's been reported for what it did, but even if it doesn't get removed it doesn't hurt anybody by it being on the store. Bad games for sale exist. Bad games for sale on Steam exist. No one has to buy them. Relax a little.

I like how everyone who doesn't hate this game is either a troll or someone being paid by the developer, apparently.

i know right

I meant that in the sense that I like that's what everyone seems to assume because they think those are the only two possible explainations. Because, you know, god forbid someone actually thinks it's weird and kinda funny.
