Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is bringing back a popular series on the dark side of gaming. Thanks to your feedback this series is continuing. This time we are exploring the practice of black listing. Are you familiar with this practice? It is a way for video game companies to discriminate against those they do not like, disagree with, and/or want to punish. Too many in PR and Marketing view the gaming media as unpaid extensions of their marketing department. They view us as being there to make them money. They have this entitlement mentality that sabotages honest and transparent communications. When we say something they don’t like they knee jerk react.
The discrimination against Christians and conservatives in the video game media realm is entrenched. Family Friendly Gaming experienced this and has written about it. Nintendo is the best example. Nintendo decided to attack traditional Biblical marriage, and embrace the blowing in the wind changing standards of man. This obvious rebellion against God was bad, what was worse was their double speak where they claim to provide for all people. They obviously do not provide for Christians, as history has shown. They extended their discrimination to black list Family Friendly Gaming because we dared point out this fact. Nintendo could have engaged in the dialogue. Nintendo could have apologized for their systemic discrimination against Christians. Nintendo could have tried to debate it. Instead they showed themselves to be petty, and small minded. This is after Family Friendly Gaming had done all kinds of things to help them out and make them tons of money for nine years.
Say one thing someone within a company does not like and you could find yourself being shunned. Exercise your First Amendment right of Freedom of Religion, and Freedom of Press to be treated like a third class citizen. The lack of diversity of thought within the video game industry is closing in on Holly Weird levels. It makes me wonder if these people in these companies are violating the First Amendment. Are they violating our civil rights? Their behavior is bad by any enlightened system we follow. Sadly there is not punishment for their black listing behavior. There is no appeals process to their acting like judge, jury, and executioner. There is no checks and balance on their faulty decision making process. So this evil, vile, and wicked behavior continues in the video game industry. What solutions can you see this major problem?
I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.
