ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

July 27, 2009 -

If you're a regular GamePolitics reader, you know that President Barack Obama often refers to video games as something to be set aside in favor of presumably more worthwhile pursuits. In the most recent example, Obama, speaking at the NAACP's 100th anniversary dinner, counseled African-American parents to put away the Xbox.

Now, the Entertainment Consumers Association is urging gamers to let the President know that there is a lot of good in video games. Brett Schenker, Online Advocacy Manager for the ECA, writes:

Throughout the Presidential race and continuing into his Presidency, President Obama on numerous occasions has said "put the video games away." As a gamer and a voter, [the ECA is] asking you to email President Obama to point out some of the ways that video games have empowered and educated you, as well as their power to build teamwork and make people healthier...

We know video games can promote fitness. We know games can educate, because we've experienced that first hand. Video games are also not solely consumption entertainment as we're being challenged to create content for some of our favorite games. We're a part of the new global choice for entertainment and the community it's spawned.

 

We're asking you to speak out now and put a positive face on our community. Make sure to let the President know what we experience every day. Take a moment and make your voice heard.

To assist gamers in contacting the Prez on this issue, the ECA has set up an online action campaign where gamers can personalize their message and have it forwarded to the White House.

 Your right like all those Bush is Hitler Rants that went on years and year here and a good number of Bush flash games, hey where are Obama flash games? Bias? Oh I noticed Whitehouse.org is no longer up since there guy won ;)

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Maybe the site will go back up if Obama does something stupid on an epic and historical level of stupid.  Like invade a country to find nonexistant weapons.  Of course giving away our tax dollars to these failure corporations so they can continue to fail is close.  But really nothing says historical douche like outright invading a country.  Ask Rome about that one.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

I'd just like to interject that this should not start into an Obama doing good or bad flamewar. This is about his misuse of video games (and really media in general) in claiming it is the cause of obesity. There's nothing wrong with wanting to improve in whatever way he believes is correct. But it is wrong to misrepresent an entire industry to push those ideas.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

I agree, I wonder if when Obama refers to video games he's thinking of "Brain Age" or other puzzle games.

I also wonder if Obama would be so willing to say "Turn of the DVD player." It's just this mentality of videogames, ALL videogames, as not being worthwhile pursuits.

Certainly there are some games that are just plain old pointless gratutitous fun. But there are movies like that too (Saw, Hostel, most romantic comedies) and then there are movies like "Saving Private Ryan" or "Citizen Kane." I know the biggest thing I hear from my mother is:

"Video GAME, it's a GAME, you wouldn't play it if it wasn't for fun and I don't think you should be having fun playing war games while we have soldiers REALLY dying in Iraq."

When I point out that you don't go see a movie like "Saving Private Ryan" or "Black Hawk Down" to have "FUN" necessarily she replies with "but those aren't GAMES."

 

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

 Obama is too busy telling women that there mothers who are too older under his forced national healthcare that instead of getting surgery they need to extend life they should just, "eat pain killers"

This is a waste of time Obama does not listen to people that is why is approval ratings are under 50% even George W Bush had higher ratings them him at this point. Your savior has failed you all

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Not being funny, sometimes you make valid points, but the moment you start talking about Obama as 'Your Saviour' and other such ridiculous statements that sound like they've been ripped off from Anne Coulter, it really does reduce the validity of anything meaningful you have to say.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

"Obama is too busy telling women that THEIR mothers who are too OLD under his forced national healthcare instead of getting surgery they need to liVe they should just "eat pain killers"."

Try using spellcheck next time.

You are an idiot. He was suggesting THE POSSIBILITY of her not needing the surgery. OH DEARS.

 

"This is a waste of time. Obama does not listen to people; that is why is approval ratings are under 50%. Even George W Bush had higher ratings thAN him at this point. Your savior has failed you all."

Continue to try using spellcheck next time.

Thus, it bears repeating that you have as much brains as a bag full of ramen. His current gallup approval rating is 56%. It would be nice for you to stop drinking the shit coffee peddled at Fox News and actually SOURCE YOUR CLAIMS.

Also, go back to drinking paint.

Sure, I am sorry I have to disagree with your Messiah but sadly even the most trusted polling reports, report him as below 50% sorry if I do not watch MSNBC

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

"Most trusted" hahahaha. Gallup has approval at 56%, higher than bush at the same point in his presidency, before 9/11.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Gallup is far more trusted than Rasmussen; you're going to have to pull a better one than that, my dear sir.

Also:

1. Nobody thinks Obama is the messiah,

2. I don't watch MSNBC

3. Learn to English.

4. STOP DRINKING PAINT, IT'S BAD FOR YOU.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Paint doesn't produce that effect; it's paint THINNER.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

The overall poll show 49% approve and 50% disapprove. Of course, a statistical margin of error of 2-3% means that its a statistical dead-tie.

It could be anywhere from 46-53 to 52-47.

Additionally, as the article points out, the Rasmussen poll samples "likely voters" not "registered voters" and not a generalized random sample.

Obama's most enthusiastic supporters are young adults who have the lowest voter turnout. They did, however, turn out fairly significantly in the last election. That has not, however, been reflected in the "likely voter" since they are still statistically the lowest turnout.

The HIGHEST turnout is among senior citizens who tend to skew conservative. These voters, as the "most likely," are disproprotionally represented in the poll.

So what you have is a poll, which overrepresents the people who are LEAST likely to approve of Obama STILL showing a dead 50/50 tie (statistically speaking).

Makes you wonder what the result would be if the people who actually turned out and voted for Obama were appropriately represented doesn't it? A poll weighted to be anti-Obama (through no fault of Rasmussen, polling likely voters is perfectly acceptable) still turns out a 50/50 tie.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

"but sadly even the most trusted polling reports, report him as below 50%"

Sorry, but I trust Gallup more than Rasmussen reports as far as polling goes.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

1) You are talking about a nation that still has a great amount of racism. 2) Conservative supporters wouldn't like a Liberal president, even if it's a good one. And you have a lot of conservative people. 3) The economy is in a recession. Historically, presidential ratings are usually low at those times.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

1) You are talking about a nation that still has a great amount of racism.

Really? You really think this is a big reason for his slide in approval ratings? Racism exists, no denying it, but it is hardly as rampant as you make it out to be.

2) 2) Conservative supporters wouldn't like a Liberal president, even if it's a good one. And you have a lot of conservative people.

I disagree. The most hardcore of the conservative folk would support Obama openly and freely if he actually accomplished positive goals while in office. Making it mandatory for people to have insurance is hardly a positive goal. Neither is creating a value added tax.

3) The economy is in a recession. Historically, presidential ratings are usually low at those times.

This is true. It is the biggest complaint people are having with Obama right now. Even though the president has next to nothing to do with the economy, the concept of just shoveling money into a broken system with a 'trust me, this will work' attitude has won him no fans when it did absolutely nothing to fix the problem but did cost trillions of tax payer dollars. I would say this is where he got the bulk of his negative criticism. That and the fact that he is spending so much time overseas instead of trying to stay state side and iron out problems. His latest actions in criticizing the police have gotten plenty of people pissed at him too.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

You'll be surprised how bad racism still is in the US. I live in Canada, and I admit that there is still quite a bit of racism. You will hear a racist joke here and there. But when I went to the States, there was such a clear line of where the black people are, and where the white people are. When my family was walking down the streets full of black people, we were stared down the whole time. That didn't stop till we got to the white people area. This was all too common through out our trip from New York to Washinton DC. Baltimore was the worst. I felt bad for the black tourist who were stared down since everywhere that was nice was white dominate.

Then there are people who are in denial about racism. The most laughable comment I heard was "Us American's aren't racist. As long as they know their place".

I saw all this only in New York and Maryland. I could on imagine how bad it would be in the southern states where it's well known for the racism.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Yes, the rampant racism is still so bad, it will still be many, many years before we ever elect a black president.

 

Right? If we won't move beyond this lame ploy now, we never will. 

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

"You're savior has failed you all"

He's only been in office 6 months, he hasn't DONE anything yet. All the legislation and policies he has passed haven't started yet. They won't for a few months even. The healthcare legislation wouldn't start until at least a year after it was passed and it would be a slow phasing process.

As for the "health insurance not health care" comment, if you don't get how not having health insurance affects someone's healthcare you're in a MUCH better financial position then the other 95% of America. Even with current private health insurance many people can't afford proper healthcare. Part of Obama's plan (if it ever makes it through legislation) is to cut back on the amount of money doctor's are able to charge for thier services, especially when it comes to being paid through medicaid. They want to implement a system which basically says if your treatment didn't do anything to help the patient, you don't get paid. That would reduce the costs for all americans and it would force medical professionals to really offer better quality care.

 

Frankly people that are judging him this early are still sadly stuck in the bush/cheney are god/jesus mentality and need a reality check.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

They want to implement a system which basically says if your treatment didn't do anything to help the patient, you don't get paid. That would reduce the costs for all americans and it would force medical professionals to really offer better quality care.

Actually it'd force medical professionals to not see patients with the government insurance. When faced with the prospect of spending assloads of time to manage diabetes patients that don't want to take insulin, only to not get paid because the patient didn't do what the doctor said, most doctors will simply not see that patient anymore.

-Gray17

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Three major things that are either ignored or discounted by the government when it comes to healthcare reform. 

1 - Health insurance companies also have anti-fraud practices which accounts for higher costs.  The government does not which has affected its various affliated healthcare programs like the VA.  Private industries find it a necessity to have these measures while the government can continue to raise taxes to cover its costs.  You think $1400 hammers was bad, imagine people trying to game a bloated government healthcare system for a living.

2 - If someone elects for an experimental or low success rate treatment, why shouldn't the doctor be paid?  Under a government program, due to a nationwide coverage these treatments will have to ruled out just because they're not cost effective.  I'm sorry but I think if it's someone's health then it's their call, not the government and the medical professional should be paid for their services whether or not the treatment works.  To do otherwise retards the medical process and prevents those that are willing to take the risk from being treated/cured. 

3 - How about a cap on medical malpractices suits and other frivolous lawsuits.  Doctors/hospitals need insurance with as sue happy the American public has become.  How much of a hospital's budget is spent on lawyers, insurance, and other legal necessities to defend against lawsuits that can be considered as a morbid kind of lottery.

Also, just because I'm critical of Obama and his policies doesn't mean I'm a fanboy of Bush/Cheney either.  If I see a cliff coming up, I'm going to try and turn before I get to it instead of running head long over it like some Looney Toons character in the hopes that there's something else there.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

All I can say is that I've lived under the British system for twenty years and the US system for twenty years.  The British system gives better care faster and is much cheaper.  Anyone who argues that a single payer plan will be wasteful and inefficient has never lived under such a system.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Which is why America has the highest cancer survival rate, and why I only pay 75 dollars whenever I see a doctor, no matter how many tests they run.  Oh, I also pay 1/100th the costs of any procedure.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

So you have insurance great. I don't. When I had to go the hospital a couple years ago with a temp of 103.8 due to influenza I got charged $1200 for sitting in a fucking waiting room for 6 hours and another $500 for a shot of antibiotics (that does fuck all against a virus) so $1700 out of my pocket for NOTHING but a piece of paper saying that I couldn't work for 4 days.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Question.

1) If you can't afford insurance, how can you come up with 1700 in one sitting?  I know people who have decent health care for 42 dollars a week.  Hell, I know people who have FREE healthcare, but that's a different story.

2) If you couldn't afford it (which it seems you could), why didn't you turn to medicaid or medicare?

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

1) I couldn't i was making $150 a week/$600 a month at the time. That being before bills like rent, food, power,water etc etc. It took me 2 YEARS to pay it off.

2) Aparently 150 a week was too much to qualify for medicare.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Don't forget that pharmecutical companies, that profit in the billions every year, charge between 50 and 90 percent of the price of their bigger drugs as a "future research" cost, meaning you're paying for the drugs AND covering the cost of research for a multi-billion-dollar-a-year industry.  Obama's health care plan does nothing about this, yet is going to bankrupt our nation to cover illegal immigrants, but NOT all of the uninsured citizens of this country.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

I think you can take it one step further.  Because pharmaceutical companies have to fall under strict price controls in places like Canada, they can't spread their future R&R costs all customers, meaning that a disproportionate amount falls on US consumers.  And before anyone even mentions the idea of US price controls, you have to think of the affects it would have in terms of developing new medication.  If you want cheap drugs, stick to penecillin and aspirin.

I would normally agree with you, but charging people hundreds of dollars per bottle to cover the cost of future research while posting billions of dollars of profits a year isn't cool, period.  Profits come AFTER paying for research, so I'd have to assume they could trim some of that cost down for the consumer.

There's more cheap drugs than that. That's why a number of pharamacies these days have a $4 drug list. Sure it's generics of stuff that's been out forever, but it's there.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Are you retarded?  He's entirely a political tool.  He'd ban anything if he thought it would win him re-election.  He's beholden to the lobbyists and interest groups moreso than any president I've seen in a long while.  My proof?  He's talking about health INSURANCE, not  health CARE.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Pandering to the lobbyists has made Obama slightly right of center, politically speaking, in his actions. So while he is not being the amazing guy some people make him out to be he is not exactly rocking the boat in congress either.

Many people on either side of the spectrum are having a hard time believing this and think he's going to be something huge, either for better or worse.

GameSnooper

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

He isn't rocking Congress because Congress is a (supposedly) filibuster-proof Democrat majority, and most of them want Obama's policies put into place.  Obama isn't right-of-center in any way, at least from the American perspective (which, as a matter of American politics, is the only one that matters, as it is American lives that will be affected the most).  He is a liberal Democrat, as his rhetoric and proposed policies prove.

However, you're absolutely right on your last point.  He isn't going to be anything huge either way, because if he goes too far left, the 2010 mid-term elections are going to put in a lot of Republicans to Congress, and he'll either have to be more centrist, or be made a lame-duck President.

Oh! Could I play the race card too if anyone disagrees with me?

Sorry, not everything has to do with Obama's skin color or his mixed heritage.  Because someone disagrees/criticizes/attacks his policies and character, to attempt to dismiss it as a racist attack cheapens and retards any attempts at meaningful discussion.  Also, it marks you as a jackass that should be ignored in books.  It's about as idiotic as the "think of the children" or "if it saves one life" arguments that are used as a retort. 

If you want truncated psuedo-logic stick to reality TV or your party games on Wii.  If not, come back with something meaningful to say and we'll have a debate.

I wasn't referring to anyone being racist.  I was responding to Shahab calling AL racist because AL doesn't agree with Obama's policies.  I want Shahab to explain that point (knowing he won't because he's obviously a moron).  I think the confusion is from the haphazard nesting on GP.

Also, that proof was relevant to him being the bitch of special interests.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

Let me explain it better then.

Observe; if one wanted to make REAL, meaningful health care reform, one would say that healthcare was free to all (as it often is if you can't afford procedures; there are miles after miles of groups that will pay for you in almost EVERY state.)  However, he won't do that; he wants to provide 'insurance', which will decide what care you can and cannot recieve.  And why?  Because the other way would put the insurance groups, one of the very powerful groups that donate money in every election, out of business.

This isn't about change, really.  It's about maintaining the status quo while redistributing the wealth.

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

See, the thing is, both sides have been talking health insurance not health care all along starting from the presidential debates. This is not something new. So you holding it up as proof he's in bed with special interests isn't particularly impressive.

-Gray17

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

They've been talking health insurance not health care since the presidential campaign. Go back and look at the debates, both McCain and Obama talk primarily about how to help people with health insurance.

About the only difference now is that Obama's starting to cave to the Hilary Clinton "universal health care" crowd.

-Gray17

Re: ECA: Tell President Obama How Games Have Benefited You

 Why do people keep injecting Republicans like McCain? I don't even know how he won as he did. Like I said when he won and it was still between Obama and Hillary whoever won a Democrat would come out. 

McCain might as well join the ranks of the Democratic Party. What they thought since he was favored by the media people would go towards McCain? Why did the media love McCain because he always went against Republicans and then when he went against the choosen one well we all know what happened.
