So nice that works for you



Cordova, TN; March 28 in the year of our Lord 2022 -- Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing to be the voice of diversity in the gaming media, and media at large. I always find it funny what happens right after an embargo date/time lifts. Here come emails that “remind” us the embargo has lifted and we can now publish content for the video game companies. It is so nice that the date and time the people in PR and Marketing works for them. Isn’t it great they picked a date and time that works great for them? They seem to have forgotten one really important fact. They seem to have lost a very important truth. The date and time they picked may not work for us. It may be outside our availability. Or maybe we do not have the bandwidth, finances, advertisers, and staff to publish their story.

The assumptions that happen within the video game industry make me laugh on an almost daily basis. The I sent you something publish it now attitude from some people in PR and Marketing is something I like to have fun with. I let them know that no one wants to pay the price for them to have the story published. I also like pointing out we have published stories about that product before and we lost money on them. Seems like a bad idea to keep financially investing in something that just loses us money. The shocked response I get back make me laugh for days. These people in PR and Marketing seem genuinely baffled that we have any costs at all to running a website, servers, etc. I have even gotten some responses telling us to start a Patreon. They are shook to their core when I tell them we have had one for years and no one has ever paid anything ever.

The whole reason I enjoy exhibiting this perspective is to teach the absolutely clueless that their attitude is selfish, self-centered, and self absorbed. All they think about is what I can do for them. They rarely think about what they can do to help us. In fact many times after publishing something I just get more stories from those people. Oh you published this for me, then do all these others as well. My response is really – another one with the center of the universe disease. Oh that works for you, how nice for you. Sadly it does not work for us. It does not work for me. I get a real laugh when someone sends the exact same story that we did not publish an hour later. As if we can’t delete the same garbage a second time. I have talked to people who have done this and they think we must have missed it. Not only did we not miss it, but now we are even more entrenched on not publishing it.

The entire video game industry needs to change drastically. People that work at and for video game companies need to acknowledge and realize that we are not their slaves. We do not publish on their time table. They need to change their self centered and selfish ways. They need to think about us, our needs, and our interests from time to time. That is the very reason I wrote this article. I am looking for improvement and change within the video game industry. Right now this dark and musty industry needs to grow up, wake up, and start being considerate. The rest of the gaming media needs to stand up with Family Friendly GAming and acknowledge we don't jump because they tell us to.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

God bless,
