Video game petitions have a very long and mostly pointless history. As I’ve said several times, an internet petition is worth the paper it is printed on. But I’ll give a little publicity to this thing, because it’s the most ridiculous one I’ve seen yet (that includes this).
My opinion of internet petitions remains unchanged: They are worth the paper they are printed on. (Hint: They are not printed on paper.) They’re a manifestation of the distorted expectation — cultivated in grade school — that First Amendment rights extend to your relationship with a private business.
“Internet petitions” rank right up there with “zillion dollar Xbox Live DLC” on my list of favourite subjects. We could spend all day writing about them, and they’re still worth the paper they are printed on*. That said, a drive to get Dark Souls ported to the PC has traction, thanks to a Namco Bandai representative’s comment to the community.
To many of us, custom button remapping in video games is a luxury, but for quadriplegic gamer Chuck Bittner, forced to control games with his mouth, it’s a necessity.
Online petitions ain’t worth much to me – just once, I’d like to see someone with a clipboard outside a GameStop doing this in person. But on some topics they’re meaningful, like the Infinity Ward/dedicated server fiasco that broke yesterday.
