See You In The Funny Papers: Ask Grandma Hardcore!
We know we haven't had an Ask Grandma Hardcore for awhile. We all know it's my fault, so let's not commence the finger-pointing, name-calling, or blogger-lynching. Just so you know, I already punished myself. It hurt. It hurt a LOT.
So let's ask some questions and shit! What do you want to know? Anonymous posting is welcome, open forum rules, topic of the evening- if you'd like to have one- is VIDEO GAMES IN THE MEDIA.
Why the media you ask? Well let me tell you...
We got another mention in The Inquirer today. A lot of UK traffic and the mysterious e-mail message from Thomas which read: "hi, saw you in The Inquirer today i think your grandma rocks" tipped us off. The Inquirer first mentioned us during the whole Jack Thompson vs. Reality fight of the century. Then CBS Evening News, Der Spiegel, the new MTV show, GameInformer, lots of live radio and The Washington Post, and Grandma finds herself embedded within excellent tech news sites.
The media is treating Grandma well, but how is all this perceived? Do people think Grandma's strange? Do they want to save her everlasting soul? What is their first impression of the woman? I don't know!
But I think they know. They get feedback we don't see. The media as an entity hasn't treated gaming and gamers so well in the past, but is this another sign of better days to come; or is it just because they don't want to insult an old lady because that would ...look bad? I don't know that either!
You tell me. If you don't know, then ...guess or something. Give me an idea.
The rest of you that have something on your mind- Ask Grandma Hardcore!
