Delaware Pols in ESRB PSA Campaign

October 1, 2009 -

The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has drafted a pair of Delaware politicians for use in its holiday PSA drive.

State Representative Helene Keeley (D) and State Senator Bethany Hall-Long (D) appear in print, radio and retail ads designed to urge parents to check ESRB ratings when purchasing or renting a videogame.

Representative Keeley, (whose ad is pictured left) said:

Virtually all video game retailers have voluntary store policies restricting the sale of Mature-rated games to anyone under the age of seventeen. Parents can show their support for companies that have and enforce these policies by shopping for games at those stores.

Ads will run in Delaware shopping malls and radio stations beginning this month and running through December. The ESRB will also distribute a ratings education brochure to participating retailers for additional consumer education.

 Nice to see another state getting involved with the ESRB.

W00T! Delaware, wooo! First State! Go Blue Hens! Delaware FTW!! Wooo!

....Oh, err...sorry...Delaware native.

However, this is really good news. We're starting to see more and more politicians pay attention to the ESRB ratings, advocating them and spreading the word to unknowledgable parents. Again, Delaware FTW. Now let's see all the other states follow suit...

...Wait. How many states already have politicians who advocate ratings education?

Andrew EisenAs I've said twice already, yes, strides in one area do not absolve anyone from criticism over where else they're falling short.03/06/2015 - 3:04pm
ZippyDSMleeI know I know one thing is not the other. Still worth nagging about.I still do not see why they do not put in body sliders and elt people make thier own body types....I'd do fat/pudgy or chibi befor I do ultra generic prefect body......03/06/2015 - 2:59pm
Andrew EisenAgain, yes, it's dumb that there's no offline mode and that's certainly something worthy of criticism but that does not make any positive moves Blizzard makes any less positive. A bummer that the issue that's more important to you wasn't addressed? Sure.03/06/2015 - 2:46pm
ZippyDSMleeBut...but... but my butthurt!!111 LOL :P03/06/2015 - 2:45pm
Andrew EisenLike everyone else, Blizzard isn't perfect but that's no reason not to give it a thumbs up when it does something cool. It also, of course, does not mean it gets a free pass on everything else.03/06/2015 - 2:36pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen: More poeple wanted offline mode for D3 on the PC tho.......03/06/2015 - 2:32pm

TechnogeekBest case, it was some marketing douchebag who thought they could pander to both sides at once.03/06/2015 - 12:49am
TechnogeekAlso, this was the mistake tweet: http://i.imgur.com/4eLWNHx.jpg03/06/2015 - 12:48am
TechnogeekBecause nothing says "open, diverse gaming community" like buddying up with Breitbart.03/06/2015 - 12:47am
Papa MidnightAndrew Eisen, I believe this is the picture that you seek: http://i.imgur.com/Gdk60pa.jpg03/06/2015 - 12:30am
Papa MidnightSurely, Goth_Skunk, you say that in jest?03/06/2015 - 12:28am

MechaTama31What was the "mistake" tweet?03/06/2015 - 12:18am

E. Zachary KnightGoth, they could have fooled me.03/05/2015 - 11:16pm
Goth_SkunkI don't understand. GamerGate supports an open, diverse gaming community for all as well. Google's statement is contradictory.03/05/2015 - 10:59pm
TechnogeekAnd as far as the Card thing went, I basically balanced it out personal guilt-wise by donating an amount equal to the Shadow Complex purchase price to the ACLU.03/05/2015 - 9:44pm
