RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)
By KevinS
Posted on 08/14/14
Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The Game of Politics

Posted on Tuesday, February 5 @ 21:11:29 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Today in the U.S., 24 states have their presidential primaries, so by tomorrow it should be pretty clear who will be the final contenders. But who are the best candidates for gamers?

Ex-Revolutionary Ben Silverman did a gaming roundup of all the front runners for Yahoo Games, and his analysis is worth a read.

While there's no clear pro-gaming candidate, most of the folks don't seem like they'd be likely to censor games.

Barack Obama is young enough to have friends who game, and he supports the ESRB, but he also mysteriously turned down a donation associated with the ESA. While Clinton fell for the anti-video game hysteria for a while, and helped to author a unconstitutional video game censorship law, she seems to have changed her mind and has recently done television spots for the ESRB to try and educate parents. And while a conservative, one of John McCain's major backers is an avid gamer and owns a chunk of a startup game developer.

And then there's Mitt Romney. His statement is pretty frightening:

"I want to restore values so children are protected from a societal cesspool of filth, pornography, violence, sex, and perversion. I've proposed that we enforce our obscenity laws again and that we get serious against those retailers that sell adult video games that are filled with violence and that we go after those retailers."

Whoa. If you haven't voted yet, get out there and do it.

And what? No Ron Paul? Someone forgot to tell Ben this was the internet.
