Censory Overload

Because folks take politics personally, that makes political activism a tough sell. However, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange’s “Fight Censorship Month” is that rare political endeavor that you can openly support without weirding out your friends and family.

On top of that, supporting the shop’s stand for free speech is as easy as playing video games.

Bookmans will be hosting Censored Video Games Free Play that Bookmans says is designed to celebrate “the freedom of playing video games” by allowing customers to come and get down with some of their favorite banned video games. The shindig will also feature “some of the familiar favorite controversial games as well as some surprisingly banned games” spanning across a variety of consoles.
