Service Your Request

 

 

Cordova, TN; August 24, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is exposing a new trend in the video game industry. It comes from the PR firms, agencies, and PR representatives of companies. They offer Family Friendly Gaming something like a reviewable copy of a game, or an interview with a talking head within a company. So we expend all of the time and financially resources to see if we have availability to accept their offer. Then we let them know that Family Friendly Gaming accepts what they are offering. We are willing to receive what they have offered in a verbal promise. They then respond with: “we will see if we can service your request.” What are you a restaurant? We didn’t come to you with anything. You came to us. You wanted us to spend our money promoting your product. You never paid for any of our costs.

Too many people in PR have their heads on backwards. We understand at Family Friendly Gaming that too many people in PR are suffering from the center of the universe disease. This new arrogance shows just how out of touch with reality they have become. Months after we tell them to stop being such control freaks, they squeeze down even tighter. They are starting to remind me of people on Twitter. They follow Family Friendly Gaming, and we follow them back. Then they send us a message thanking us for following them, and talk all about themselves. We just reciprocated. There is a good word that you won’t hear many in PR use, let alone apply the concept. Honor, integrity, and ethics are other words rarely heard in connection with PR.

Do you know what the work is required of them to provide a reviewable copy? To put something in the mail, drop it off with UPS, Fedex, DHL, or some other package delivery company. Usually the delivery company appears at their site so they do not even need to leave their offices. If it is a code then it is a simple copy and paste. Then they have to log that the code was sent off. It is amazing how many in PR mess up that step and send already used codes. Not a lot of effort on their part. We are talking five minutes of work maybe. Not like firing up the grill, firing up the oil, and cooking a burger and fries. Or checking on the smoker to make sure the meat is still getting smoked. Since so many in the PR industry are trying to maximize their profits they are copying and pasting codes. They pass the cost of downloading the game on to us. Another reason Family Friendly Gaming continues to support physical copies. We have even purchased thousands of games with our own money to show support for the physical copy movement.


God bless,
