10 Days Left to Submit Your Gamer Question to the CNN/YouTube Presidential Debate

November 19, 2007 -
Is there something you'd like to say about video games to the Republican presidential candidates?

Time is winding down for the Nov. 28th CNN/YouTube debate. As you may recall, the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) is supporting (with free T-shirts!) gamers who submit game-related video questions to the candidates.

We're really hoping one of the gamer videos is selected for the debate as it would help bring game consumer issues front and center to a national audience.

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. Standard YouTube debate rules apply.

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

You can view all of the previously submitted videos here.

You should ask why the democrats want to censor videogames, and what the fuck is wrong with my party when a republican candidate wants to censor them too.

Because the Republican party, the vanguard of the Christian conservatism, has tradionally hated anything that contradicts their absurd right-wing value system. The fact Republicans cater to such bible thumping morons makes them far, FAR, more likly to assault the freedom of media.

Suggestion: Get a line of 15 white males, all dressed in Gestapo colors, and offer Romney a Heil.

Ask how he will strike down the freedom of adults in matters concerning entertainment for the "betterment" of America. Be sure to include a short list: film, video games, internet, porn.

Give the facist Bible thumpers the salute they deserve, imo.

@pandralisk

The religious base is only turned to when the Republicans need a boost. Usually they go for the "conservative" base, namely the "hands-off" government types. It's only lately that the neo-cons have polarized things into "you're either a Jesus fan, or Bin Laden's bitch".

The religious crowd is such an easy sway, they're usually taken for granted unless the race is close. Then it's "an attack on Christianity" call to mobilize the masses...

If I feel like using my crappy webcam, I'll ask them why they target only games and not other violent media, as well as point out that only 8% of games released in the last year or 2 are M rated, as well as point out that you don't play the games cause you give the wrong description of it.

Oh jesus,

When speaking of the current cultural whipping boy, you do not ask which party is whipping it, only which party is whipping it harder.

I am glad that I made a video. I don't really have time to make another, but I would have loved to do this when the Democrats held their Youtube debate.

But for all those who want to but haven't, it is worth it and the t-shirt is fab. But remember to list you t-shirt size in your email if you want one that fits. Mine was a size too big, but it is still great.

@brokenscope
The democrat party is whipping it as hard as possible, believe you me.

I'm not happy with the fact that republican candidates aren't talking about enough.

I just checked out some videos and thought that you made one of the best when it comes to making a point about the rights of video games.

I see that you have an interesting site about games that I would look at more when I get a chance later on.

One of the classes I am taking next semester at college is a game design class.

I am hoping that more people will stand up against people like Jack Thompson and show the real truth that video games are not the real problem.

I know myself well enough that if i did a video I would probably insult the candidates. but I insult everyone. I just know that any answer will be complete BS.

Someone should make a video asking how may video games do they own or better yet have they ever played or owned one.

@Austin Lewis:

I'd vote for you, but you're a Yankee fan. =)

If I felt like asking, "So what's your favorite game system? What's your favorite game to play?" Then I'd put the time in since I know that's EXACTLY the type of question that will be allowed to the candidates.

Not to mention my question would be a loaded one just waiting for the typically retarded, politically correct, omghowdoikeepallthevotes answer since those are so easy to see coming.

I realize I'm being very cynical, however how can you not be after what's been known for years gets underlined with the Clinton campain?

Before everyone skewers me let me say I'm not for any of them... I know that her campain just got nailed publically first. They ALL do this.

*buries soap box*

If you had to play a game over and over and over would it be pong or the latest Sci Fi First Person Shooter to save the world?

This would be my Q but my cam is out of commission
