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.

Infophile@Matt: Apparently Dan Aykroyd actually is involved. We don't know how yet, though, but he's apparently going to be in the movie in some way.08/02/2015 - 4:17am
MattsworknameI still hold that not having the origonal cast invovled in any way hurts this movie, and unless the 4 actresses in the lead roles can some how measure up to the comic timing of the origonal cast, i just don't see it being a success08/02/2015 - 12:46am
MattsworknameMecha: regardless of what you think of it, GB 2 was a finanical success and for it time did well with audiances ,even if it wasnt as popular as the first08/02/2015 - 12:45am
MechaTama31I think they're better off trying to do something different, than trying to be exactly the same and having every little difference held up as a shortcoming. Uncanny valley.08/01/2015 - 11:57pm
MechaTama31Having the original cast didn't do much for... that pink-slimed atrocity which we must never speak of.08/01/2015 - 11:56pm
MattsworknameAndrew: If the new ghostbusters bombs, I cant help but feel it'll be cause it removed the origonal cast and changed the formula to much08/01/2015 - 8:31pm
