As noted previously, video gamers are taking a break from their joysticks and getting political. For the inside story, go to GamePolitics.com -- “Where politics and Video Games collide.” The site, part of the Entertainment Consumers Association, does a nice job covering all things political and cultural related to video games. It’s edited by Dennis McCauley, longtime video game columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, who also writes a column for the video game site Joystiq.
