Each week Dennis McCauley contributes The Political Game, a column on the collision of politics and video games:
"The video game industry finally stood up for itself this week when Electronic Arts called Fox News out over the network's lies about Mass Effect.
It's about time.
The theme of this column, in fact, was going to be a rant about game companies laying low and relying upon gamers to defend the industry against such controversies. By stepping up, EA ruined that column idea for me, but I'm glad they did."
