You know, we're not called Game Revolution for nothing. There are a ton of places for you to read, watch, and talk about video games. TONS! But we want you to know that when you talk, we listen.
The People Speak was originally a weekly feature that would highlight a specific topic each week and let the community go nuts with it. Despite the consistency of the feature, I was disappointed with one thing:
It offered you, the readers, no choice.
We live in a time of great upheaval. If you've been paying attention to anything outside of the world of video games you'll have noticed the uprising in the Middle East. I thought Game Revolution, the community, and new readers like you could benefit from a little bit more freedom.
That's why The People Speak is now going to feature the best from everyone in the community, across comments on reviews, previews, manifestos, and news as well as in the forums and on user blogs and reviews.
How am I going to cover all of this by myself? That's where you come in. I'll do my best to keep track of all the awesome stuff from the community each week but you can also nominate comrades for recognition. Did someone say something funny? Send it to me in a PM. Did someone comment on a news post with particular insight? Send it to me in a PM.
Every weekend will see five community members recognized for their words here at Game Revolution. Hopefully this will drive a little competition. To sweeten the deal, at the end of every three month period, I'll select the community member with the most featured comments, posts, etc and give them a prize. I haven't yet decided what this could be, but if you have ideas you can start your push for the top by commenting in this post with your ideas. See you next week!
