David Parrish, frustrated by the protracted legal battle over the California video game law, has jumped into the YouTube debate fray with this video...

Hahaha, wow. I have a clone.

If anyone has any doubts, and actually cares, feel free to send the YouTube account this video is hosted on (username is wizardmon5), and I will let you know, via that, that it's me.

*gasp!* There's two of them!

I don't know who the guy above me is, but this is the real David Parrish here. Thanks for noticing me, GP, and thanks to those who agreed with me here in the compliments. And thanks to the guy pretending to be me...I'm flattered.

Excellent question. Keep them coming!

Hey, would you look at that, I made it onto GamePolitics. Nifty.

Also, as someone said, that 30-second time limit is a bit irritating. My original take was one minute and twenty seconds, in which I quoted the judge (where he said the evidence against video games was lacking), but I had to cut that, among other things, out of the final take.

In any case, thanks for whatever compliments I recieved here.

And if anyone thinks I should revise the video (keeping in mind I only have thirty seconds), let me know and I'd be happy to re-submit an altered version. I'll check back here for replies.

@Jack

I only have one thing to say about that:

DO IT.

Nice one Jack,

I want to hear a question from GamerDad, and i want to see him wear a tie!

Thank you Unruly. I'll have to do more research. I want the biggest number I can get to show enough significance.


On a side note heres the question I plan to ask....

Hi my name is (to be revealed) and I work in the field of Subtance Abuse Recovery.

And my name is (to be reavealed) , I'm a substitue teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. We both reside in (to be revealed) , CA.

Many unnesscery video game bills across America have been shot down by the judcial system. So far America's tax payers have dished out $(millions) in legal fees for bills deemed unconstitutional. If elected President what will you do to prevent such trivial events in Judcial system from occuring?

That's actually an excellent question, and it applies to any frivolous bill that wouldn't survive it's day in court.

Of course I expect an equally frivolous answer about bipartisanship or "working smarter" or something, but that's normal.

@Jack

I just did a quick addition of what costs I could find through a rather un-thorough search of the GP archives, and it totals around $1.3million.

The breakdown is as follows -
Illinois - c. $1m for both industry reimbursement and state legal fees
Michigan - $182,349 in industry reimbursement alone
Louisiana - $92,000 in industry reimbursement alone

And that's without the California law getting tacked on there, and with two of those states just showing the reimbursement fees and not their own. I'd assume that the state legal fees would follow the Illinois example and be right around equal to the industry costs, so its probably closer to $1.5-1.6m without Cali in the mix.

This is almost dead-on...

It needs bit of refinement. PHOENIXZERO above said it already, change time to tax payer dollars, and like Jack above asked, find out the exact dollar amount or get a really good estimate.

Are you allowed to submit more than one or revise the one you've submitted?

@ PHOENIXZERO


Do you know the total exactly we've wasted in America? I'm just curious because I'm considering making a video as well.

I didn't know Nebraska had a norfolk

@Raum
"Turtle Jumped On At Zoo, Mario To Blame"

I love that headline. :)

I also agree. We need a second page, as there are going to be a lot of submissions. You can't deny the power of the free t-shirt. ;)

Instead of the wasting time thing, it would have probably been better to mention the wasting of millions of tax payer dollars. Still, much better than the other ones, shame they limit people to 30 seconds since it's hard to ask a real, good question with as many facets as this issue has without at least being able to go into some detail, if just so politicians have a harder time spinning it.

Unfortunately, I don't see CNN taking any of these questions as they're likely to go with some bad/stupid softball questions like they did for the democrats or probably worse since there's such "love" for Republicans outside Fox News the stupidity of the questions asked in previous Q&As.

I can't bring myself to call these or any of these things "debates" seeing as candidates not only get a lot of time to prepare, they don't even really debate anything.

No offense intended GP, but we've gotten 5 videos for candidates up on the front page already, are we going to be seeing more as the next few months go by? Shouldn't we give them their own seperate page and leave the front page forstuff like; 'In UAE, GTA San Andreas Survives Despite Government Ban', 'California 2005 Video Game Law Ruled Unconstitutional' or 'Turtle Jumped On At Zoo, Mario To Blame'?

nice simple and too the point,very unzippish :P

Kick-ass video, in my opinion.

As a side-note, I have the poster right behind his head. Matrix Reloaded, great movie, best car scene in history ever.

Anyone ever use this email account program before? Just curious, I'm looking for software that will mass create email accounts.

Matthew Wilsonits called windows 10, and I am happy to get the start menu back.09/30/2014 - 7:18pm
Jessy HartIs this stuff about Windows 10 legit? Is it actually called Windows 10 or is it just some stupid joke?09/30/2014 - 6:57pm
ZippyDSMleeSo I been trying to play Bioshock Infinite I got all the DLC,ect but do not want the extras to make your charatcer over powered from the start.....they force you to take them which is quite annoying......09/30/2014 - 6:45pm
Craig R.I need to upgrade to an SSD, still seriously debating moving to Win8.1 from 7 at the same time09/30/2014 - 6:07pm
Craig R.Win10 is probably Win8.1 with more cleanup and the Start button back.09/30/2014 - 6:06pm
Sora-ChanAhh, it's just weird seeing someone's post all of a sudden have replies from days prior before it was posted due to that.09/30/2014 - 5:49pm
MechaTama31sora: I broke the ordering intentionally, as AE's and my conversation had squeezed the text boxes down to be quite slim. I replied to an earlier post of his instead of the one I was actually replying to.09/30/2014 - 5:46pm
MechaTama31So, 9 would have been the good one, but they are skipping it to do two crap ones in a row?09/30/2014 - 5:41pm
Sora-ChanSo, judging from the poll post for #gamergate, it looks like too many thread replies breaks the ordering of posts, as seen with the recent post from Infophile.09/30/2014 - 5:31pm
Andrew EisenOr no! It wasn't Y3K compliant. Microsoft thought it best to super future proof its OS and skipped straight to 10 which is Y3K compliant!09/30/2014 - 5:01pm
Andrew EisenJust tell them it wasn't Y2K compliant.09/30/2014 - 5:00pm
Craig R.Looking forward to having to explain to coworkers down the road what ever happened to 9 *sigh*09/30/2014 - 4:57pm
Craig R.2k was crap. XP was solid, 7 is good, 8.1 is actually really good once you make it look like 7 :)09/30/2014 - 4:52pm
Sora-Chan@MP As someone who has used each version of windows since 3.1... I prefer Vista over 7 for various reasons. The only thing I give 7 over Vista is preformance. They really screwed up a bunch of things when making 7. Also, XP was a pain. 2k was better.09/30/2014 - 4:13pm
Jessy Hart@E. Zachary Knight Is that show called Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures?09/30/2014 - 3:34pm
IanCWin 8 isn't bad, it just can't decide whether to be a desktop OS or a tablet OS.09/30/2014 - 2:40pm
IanCI think its a way of getting round giving it free to Win 8 users...09/30/2014 - 2:39pm
MaskedPixelanteWindows alternates between bad and good versions. XP was good, Vista sucked, 7 was good, 8 sucked, therefore 10 will suck, QED.09/30/2014 - 2:18pm
E. Zachary KnightPerhaps they are calling it "10" because on a scale of 1-10 of how awesome it is, it is a clear 10.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
E. Zachary KnightTo be fair. Microsoft has had a bit of a numbering issue lately. What with going from XBox 360 to XBox One.09/30/2014 - 2:06pm
