Manifesto Games’ CEO’s open letter to Eliot Spitzer

Manifesto Games’ CEO Greg Costikyan has written an open letter to Eliot Spitzer regarding his anti video game legislation efforts. Manifesto Games is a video game retailer based in New York City. Mr. Costikyan happens to be a former classmate of Eliot Spitzer.

The letter is an excellent summary of everything that’s wrong with Spitzer’s vote buying and money wasting effort:

In summation, therefore, I urge you to eschew what would undoubtedly be a fruitless, immoral, costly, injurious, unwarranted, and inappropriate attempt to infringe on the free speech rights of game creators–and perhaps instead to consider what measures the State of New York might take to position our region as an excellent place to create and develop games.
