If I were Reggie...

Given the absurd position of the Parents Television Council on video game companies supporting elected officials, I think Reggie should be pulling out his check book right now, and rattling off as many $5000 checks as he can justify, just to prove a point.

In case you didn't see it, PTC president Tim Winter said,
"Let me be clear of our intentions: Any public servant who cashes a check from the video game industry will be exposed by the PTC as taking a stand against families, and his or her actions will be communicated to constituents in his or her congressional district."


Go for it Reggie - dare them to justify Nintendo as "against families."

The full statement is on the ever-vigilant Gamepolitics.

But that would be asking business people to stand up on principle. Sorry to rain my cynicism on your rather brilliant idea, but I forsee nothing but pussy-footing around by the majority of the industry.

Id o sympathise with those who wish to protect children against extremely violent media in any form - and I even agree with them on many of their points. However, their style of slash and burn, leaving everything in their dust is reprehensible. Were they to be reasonable and say things like 'We need to find a way to stop ten-year-olds from playing Manhunt 2' I would be much more amenable to a debate. Children need to be taken care of as a special case, simply because they have underdeveloped brains.

But not only is this argument not theirs, it's not even in the same ballpark as theirs. Their argument is based on the idea that NOBODY should be taking part in such violence and immorality. And that's when they cross the line.

Dammit John, now i've got to write a huge blog about this again. You bastard.
