If You Like It

 

 

Cordova, TN; June 1, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is addressing a recent trend within the PR industry. How do we know about it? The PR contacts are saying it to us. It has been cropping up from Christian movie companies, and the worldly video game companies. It is also a trend that can be heard in a variety of other places. What is it? The phrase: “if you like it.” What is wrong with that? By itself nothing. What follows is where things get problematic. What is it that follows? Go tell everyone you know about this product. Also tell everyone on the selfish social media sites. Also make as many purchases of our product as you can. Notice the self centered nature of it?

That is not even the worst part. Plenty of people have told us: “if you don’t like it, then be quiet.” So they are trying to ensure the only news, reviews, previews, videos, and everything else of their product is only positive. They want to weed out any constructive criticism. They want everyone to be super. And when everyone is super - no one is. I have even heard from PR contacts that if we don’t like something they won’t give us reviewable copies. They are trying to get promises of high review scores for a reviewable copy. This is crazy. They actually are trying to stop any negative reviews. Family Friendly Gaming has gotten threats of no more reviewable copies from certain people because of constructive criticism in a review. They act like they control us, and they are our bosses. Even worse a few companies have denied us reviewable copies because we said something they did not like. Talk about having a thin skin, and trying to force everyone to give them their myopic, unprofessional, and childish way.

This Caprica level of corruption is a real, deep, and important problem eating away at the video game industry. There are companies making billions of dollars who are not content. They want to make more. They think by destroying the integrity and credibility of video game journalism that they will get more sales. I get emails all the time thanking Family Friendly Gaming for being honest, genuine, and real. They thank us for our integrity and honor. Christ Centered Gamer is another website getting the same thank you emails. I wish this entire story was a long list of all the gaming sites getting the thank you emails for having integrity. I wish more of the gaming sites were not seen as bought off. I wish corruption would be weeded out of the video game industry. I wish the cynicism of positive reviews on certain sites was much lower.


God bless,
