Nintendo isn't the only one who wants to make gamers into ambassadors, but unlike the 3DS variety, nobody is giving away free videogames if you become a Video Game Voters Network Ambassador. The program, which is open to any college or university student in the United States, is aimed at educating interested parties about the facts and myths related to the gaming industry.
The Ambassador part comes from recruitment, which is part of the goal here. Students who get involved will be encouraged to organize events and draw in new members. I'm not sure how I feel about this whole thing. On the one hand its good to squash the stupid lies that certain people tell about our beloved industry, and it may serve as a way for gamers to get together and hang out. On the other hand I have some doubts about how popular this will actually be. Maybe I'm just cynical. So what do you think? Is this a good idea? Would you join up?
