Gamers For Gaming (Manhunt 2 - inspired campaign gets name & kicks ass)

Hello, fellow Dtoiders,

Jim here once again, with some updates to the campaign spearheaded by David Houghton and myself to give games and gamers a legitimate voice in the public arena. Firstly, with many thanks to the Dtoid army, we have settled on a name - Gamers For Gaming. Credit for our name goes to Bryan Coffee who's Dtoid name I can't be buggered to remember. I love you anyway. :)

Soon, expect a manifesto that David and I have drawn up, stating the mission and goals of GFG. I have also emailed the BBFC and gotten a reply from them, which I will share with you later this evening in some form or other. It doesn't really shed further light on the situation, but it's a response nonetheless.

Fairly soon, we will be contacting developers and fellow members of the gaming press to spread the word further and gain some momentum. Also, feel free to brainstorm ideas as to what kind of event we can culminate our campaign with. We need something original, fun, attention grabbing and containing our serious message. Please, use my blog as a canvas and don't be afraid to make any suggestion, no matter how wild.

All that remains to be said so far is thank you. Between this blog, private discussions and even peeps from another community I frequent, your support in this very early stage has been very encouraging and I'm confident that with the zeal of the Dtoid army and gamers everywhere, we have a chance to truly do something of value.

Stay tuned to this channel. We're not going anywhere.
