James Knowlton, a 28-year-old millennial from Minnesota, took to Facebook to voice his disapproval.
He told CNN the game is an insult and that it's never "good to kick somebody while they're down."
"This is one of the biggest game/toy companies in the world making the fact that property ownership is impossible for most people my age into a jeering tag line. It's patronizing," he said.
"The whole thing feels out of touch with what my age group actually wants or likes."
Knowlton added, "I feel like something like this would have been more well-received coming from an independent publisher who was poking fun at Monopoly itself, but this is the successful rich Uncle Pennybags who owns everything, sticking his tongue out at you."


James James James... So much pain...
