ECA Announces Gamer Video Contest For YouTube Presidential Debates

August 6, 2007 -
ECA to Award T-shirts to All Who Participate!

The Entertainment Consumers Association is excited about the 2008 presidential election campaign as well as concerned about how the candidates view issues pertaining to games and gamers. 

The ECA also notes the upcoming CNN/YouTube Republican debate, which will air on September 17th.

In order to encourage true grassroots gamer activism, the ECA will be awarding a T-shirt to anyone who uploads a video question pertaining to game consumer rights to the GOP candidates for the YouTube presidential debate. Standard YouTube debate rules apply.

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.

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

I am going to be making one from GamingAngels.com, and I have encouraged everyone in the forums to make one! Great work Gamepolitics.com and ECA!

I am working on mine as we speak.

[...] The Entertainment Consumers Association’s (ECA) is encouraging people to add videos with a contest to get you, dear reader, to submit video questions “pertaining to game consumer rights” for the upcoming CNN / YouTube Republican debate set to air on September 17. . We think it’s a great idea. [...]

GP: I made a video pertaining to Romney's Ocean of Filth videos. I asked why he feels Americans should back censorship of that sort.

Would that count? It doesn't address game consumers directly, but it addresses government crackdowns.

I had to go and open my mouth...*sigh*

Hey, I already put one up. Do I still get a Tee?

youtube has a crapload of vids, so the chances of my embaresment are less.

if it's on gp, then other people will deffinatly see it.





i've got issues. :)

LOL, Billy. I hear ya. Well, I think that spreading the word via GP, MySpace and FaceBook is part of the deal, so if that is a turnoff for you, perhaps best to re-think the idea.

I should tell this to my friends over on SecondLife. Some of these people are brilliant and could probably come up with a very unique way to approach this.

Billy, If the video is up on YouTube, what's the difference?

what if i don't want it to appear on gp or the eca myface?

im on the work, btw does it apply to non-americans too ?

Cool idea and one I’d like to participate in but alas, I have no video capture equipment. It’s probably for the best though. Due to my size and voice I tend to come off as really intimidating to lot of people.

Guess I’ll stick with letter writing.

Matthew Wilson@zippy there is no way they are going to merge with capcom becouse both companies are not in good shape. sony, Nintendo, and square are the only companies with enough money to pull it off in japan.04/27/2015 - 4:27pm
ZippyDSMleeCutesy name for motherboard. My 300$ mobo fried itself one night...04/27/2015 - 4:23pm
Andrew EisenNo problem. No idea what a mobo is but it's easy to overlook stuff in the Shout box.04/27/2015 - 4:18pm

ZippyDSMleehttp://www.polygon.com/2015/4/27/8503893/konami-delists-itself-from-new-york-stock-exchange This just in Konami and Capcom merge so they can ignore more IP's.04/27/2015 - 3:50pm
E. Zachary KnightNot really. I think people are overly critical of other game projects. Delays should be expected and shouldn't be considered a major failing and worthy of the crap they get.04/27/2015 - 3:09pm
Matthew WilsonI agree that Double Fine gets off way too easy compared to others.04/27/2015 - 2:40pm

E. Zachary KnightMatthew, delaying games has been amassive point of contention for games that raised a fraction of what Double Fine did.04/27/2015 - 2:14pm
Matthew Wilsonand yes they went way way over budget from what I read.04/27/2015 - 12:33pm
Matthew Wilson@AE if they cancaled it there would be massive outrage, but people tend to be ok with a delayed game.04/27/2015 - 12:32pm
IvresseBleh, can't edit shout on my phone :-/04/27/2015 - 12:32pm
Andrew EisenHell, the Kickstarter itself raised WAY more than DF was asking but I saw no accusations of impropriety.04/27/2015 - 12:31pm
Andrew EisenA little over three years later (two and a half years after the estimated delivery date), the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter finally delivered the game. Oddly, I never saw anyone accuse Double Fine of scamming or conning anyone.04/27/2015 - 12:30pm
Ivresse@PHX Corp: Not only that, but Konami have just delisted themselves from the NYSE:http://polygon.com/e/826793404/27/2015 - 12:28pm
Matthew Wilsonwhile I felt bad for everyone outside the US who wanted to watch the HOTS finals, the fact it was on espn 2 in prime time is a major major step forward for video games.04/27/2015 - 12:14pm

Papa MidnightI also hope that legislation holds the individual(s) who initiated the action is criminally liable for any and all harm that may come to persons involved (whether it be the cops or the victim(s)), as well as any property damaged suffered by any party.04/27/2015 - 8:16am
