Gaming Gets Political

Posted on Tuesday, January 15 @ 22:17:48 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
It's the sign of an industry growing up when it finally joins in the creepy political old-boys network. The Entertainment Software Association has just formed a PAC.

As reported in the New York Times this morning:

Michael D. Gallagher, chief executive of the Entertainment Software Association, the industry’s lobbying arm in Washington, said last week that the group’s board approved the PAC’s creation last fall and that the committee would be up and running by the end of March. The association represents major game publishers including the Walt Disney Company, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony.

The (long overdue) idea is to contribute to the campaigns of pro-game, anti-censorship politicians. Hillary, no check for you!

“We will be writing checks to campaigns by the end of this quarter,” Mr. Gallagher said. “This is an important step in the political maturation process of the industry that we are ready to take now. This is about identifying and supporting champions for the game industry on Capitol Hill so that they support us.”

This follows the ESA's creation of the Video Game Voters Network last year as a way to mobilize voting age gamers. Which is a hell of a lot of us.

Anyway, it's about time we played on a level playing field with the other media, even if the system itself is a bit suspect. If I may plug for a moment, you should join the Video Game Voters Network. It's free. I've been a member myself from the day it launched.
