Going to PAX Prime this weekend, want to protest the current state of Games Journalism, but don’t know how?
Here’s what you do:
1.) Print out the Five Guys: Burgers and Lies (png) image above (or click http://i.imgur.com/yqcPztR.png).
2.) Print out the image on Iron On Transfer Paper (which can be purchased at any Office Depot, or Wal-Mart for a few bucks)
3.) Iron the Five Guys: Burgers and Lies image on to any white t-shirt (preferably a white shirt - which can be purchased for a very low price at any store).
4.) Attend PAX Prime wearing the shirt.
If anyone asks you why you are wearing the shirt, tell them. Link them back to Internet Aristocrat’s videos on the subject, or anyone else’s video on the subject.
Tell them that you want transparency in Video Games Journalism, and you are wearing the shirt in protest of the radio silence you’ve seen from the Industry as a whole since this situation started. Remind them that you love video games, and you don’t want to be lied to by the people who you trust to bring you the news.
Also remember to be kind and courteous to people. Those who are against this kind of reaction from the Gaming community are looking for anything they can use against you to discredit your voices.
Do not let them.
If you don’t live in Seattle, or will not be attending PAX, please feel free to print out the image, iron it on a t-shirt, and protest with your fellow gamers from anywhere in the world. Take a selfie in the shirt, and them submit it here. I’ll post them for everyone to see.
(Also, don’t just “like” this post…reblog the shit out of it!)
EDIT: I don’t want anyone to get kicked out of PAX Prime. If you do wear this shirt, wear it outside, and don’t risk not going to the show because of some dumb t-shirt. :)
