ECA Announces Gamer Video Contest For YouTube Presidential Debates

August 6, 2007 -
ECA to Award T-shirts to All Who Participate!

The Entertainment Consumers Association is excited about the 2008 presidential election campaign as well as concerned about how the candidates view issues pertaining to games and gamers. 

The ECA also notes the upcoming CNN/YouTube Republican debate, which will air on September 17th.

In order to encourage true grassroots gamer activism, the ECA will be awarding a T-shirt to anyone who uploads a video question pertaining to game consumer rights to the GOP candidates for the YouTube presidential debate. Standard YouTube debate rules apply.

One T-shirt will be mailed to each individual who successfully uploads a video question. Mention of the ECA is not required, but is appreciated. A link to your video along with your contact information (name, address, phone and email) should be sent to info@theECA.com. Contest is open to ECA members as well as non-members.

You can also expect to see your video published here on GamePolitics as well as on the ECA's Facebook and MySpace pages

I am going to be making one from GamingAngels.com, and I have encouraged everyone in the forums to make one! Great work Gamepolitics.com and ECA!

I am working on mine as we speak.

[...] The Entertainment Consumers Association’s (ECA) is encouraging people to add videos with a contest to get you, dear reader, to submit video questions “pertaining to game consumer rights” for the upcoming CNN / YouTube Republican debate set to air on September 17. . We think it’s a great idea. [...]

GP: I made a video pertaining to Romney's Ocean of Filth videos. I asked why he feels Americans should back censorship of that sort.

Would that count? It doesn't address game consumers directly, but it addresses government crackdowns.

I had to go and open my mouth...*sigh*

Hey, I already put one up. Do I still get a Tee?

youtube has a crapload of vids, so the chances of my embaresment are less.

if it's on gp, then other people will deffinatly see it.





i've got issues. :)

LOL, Billy. I hear ya. Well, I think that spreading the word via GP, MySpace and FaceBook is part of the deal, so if that is a turnoff for you, perhaps best to re-think the idea.

I should tell this to my friends over on SecondLife. Some of these people are brilliant and could probably come up with a very unique way to approach this.

Billy, If the video is up on YouTube, what's the difference?

what if i don't want it to appear on gp or the eca myface?

im on the work, btw does it apply to non-americans too ?

Cool idea and one I’d like to participate in but alas, I have no video capture equipment. It’s probably for the best though. Due to my size and voice I tend to come off as really intimidating to lot of people.

Guess I’ll stick with letter writing.

MaskedPixelanteNevermind. Turns out when they said "the patch is now live", they meant "it's still in beta".12/19/2014 - 5:07pm

Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.polygon.com/2014/12/19/7421953/bullshit-cards-against-humanity-donated-250k-sunlight-foundation I have to admit I like the choice o organization. congrats to CAH.12/19/2014 - 1:51pm
E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am
ZippyDSMleeAnd I still spent 200$ in the last month on steam/GOG stuff sales get me nearly every time ><12/19/2014 - 10:55am
ZippyDSMleeMaskedPixelante:And this is why I'm a one legged bandit.12/19/2014 - 10:51am
ZippyDSMleeE. Zachary Knight: I buy what I can as long as I can get cracks for it...then again it I could have gotton Lords of the Fallen for 30 with DLC I would have ><12/19/2014 - 10:50am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/12/19/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-leaving-online-storefronts-soon/ Speaking of "last chance to buy", Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is getting delisted from all major storefronts. Behold the wonders of the all digital future.12/19/2014 - 9:59am
MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
E. Zachary KnightInfophile, Tha is why I buy only DRM-free games.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
MaskedPixelanteNordic is back on GOG for one weekend only. And at 85% off no less, which is kind of a slap in the face to people who paid more during the "NORDIC IS LEAVING FOREVER BUY NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE" sale, but whatever...12/19/2014 - 9:28am
InfophileRe PHX's link: This is one of the reasons the digital revolution isn't all it's cracked up to be. There's also the flip side where Sony can block access to games you've bought if they ban your account for unrelated reasons. All power is theirs.12/19/2014 - 8:52am
MaskedPixelantehttp://uplay.ubi.com/#!/en-US/events/uplay-15-days You can win FREE GAMES FOR A YEAR! Unfortunately, they're Ubisoft games.12/18/2014 - 6:29pm
Papa MidnightAh, so it was downtime. I've been seeing post appear in my RSS feed, but I was unable to access GamePolitics today across several ISPs.12/18/2014 - 6:06pm
