Why is there such Cowardice in Video Game PR?
Cordova, TN; March 27, in the year of our Lord 2017--Family
Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family
friendly video games is exploring an issue within the video game
industry. What is this issue? Cowardice in video game PR is the
issue for this article. I must preface it with there are plenty
of wonderful, honest, caring, considerate people we work with
that are in video game PR. There are people that send over
advertisements, great articles, games, boxes, swag, and more.
There are people in video game PR that put their money where
their mouth is. We appreciate all ya’ll. You know who you are.
This article is not for you. This article is for the yellow
bellied cowards in video game PR. Those lying, scheming,
conniving, sewer rats that need to be called out are the ones
being addressed in this article.
I don’t get it. I understand there are some video game PR people who treat us like third class citizens because we are Christians. I understand there are some petty and vindictive video game PR people who treat us like third class citizens because we have diverse viewpoints from them. I understand that there are some video game PR people who are not grateful for all the money Family Friendly Gaming has made them. What I don’t understand is why they can’t return phone messages, reply to emails, or have some semblance of common courtesy. Is their venom and hatred so vile and wicked that they cannot even be civil? Is that the image they want the millions of readers of Family Friendly Gaming to come away with? Do they really want to be seen as so intolerant, closed minded, and bigoted? Do they enjoy being the bad guy? I really don’t get it.
I tell other people bad news all of the time. Is it pleasant? No it is not. It is the right thing to do. I have people in PR ask if we will cover a certain story. I tell them no. They know that we are not going to spend our money on making their company money with that product. I would rather be open, honest, and transparent. At times some people in video game PR ask why. I don’t want to tell them. I give them an answer anyways. Why? It is the right thing to do. Also I believe in following the Golden Rule. I would want someone to tell me we are being dropped from a press distribution listing. These cowards do it, and then don’t respond when we try to continue working with them. Why can’t there be a better class of character as a requirement for video game PR? Am I really asking for so much? Some of these companies should drop their PR firms for acting this way. Why? It winds up hurting their image in the long run. Maybe the venom and hatred is coming from them and not the video game PR people. They run a nice shell game blaming the other one while enacting their discrimination.
