What an ass.

Just e-mailed him via the link on his website and I expect to get biased reply filled with stock phrases and flawed arguments forthwith. Still, I felt it had to be done.

My message:


Sir,

Your proposal smacks of a man with a vendetta. Not the protagonist, you.

Why do you have such bile for videogames that portray violence. With
regard to one game you singled out, any sane gamer can see that Postal2 is
devoid of any worthwhile content. I'd rather play an abstract piece such
as Q Entertainment's superb Lumines on the PSP as I'm sure many others
would.

Maybe living in a country that's in the top ten of murders by firearm (per
capita) is the real problem. Stupid parents who let their kids play these
games are part of the problem too.

Videogames seem to be a convenient scapegoat, just as movies and music
have been in their time. Sueing games companies is just a sad indictment
of the US lawsuit culture that's prevalent in your oxymoronic Land Of The
Free. Put it this way, I'm glad I live here rather than in your country.

Cheers!
Ian

Good email. Unfortunately to someone like Jack Thompson it will have less than no merit simply because you are not American (or wanting to become American).

Jack Thompson is an utter nutjob. Also, it seems like he's falling out of favor.

Commenting on Jack in any way in this thread would only be a lightly veiled slight at certain people that post on this forum.

I think what Penny Arcade said about being lucky that it wasn't someone competent doing the legal action was pretty accurate.

well damn I'm glad I don't live in OK

I wouldn't want to have to take home my games in a brown paper bag from a questionable establishment. Where's Jack Thompson to fuck things up when you need him?

I'm starting to wonder if he has people in Govt actually backing him anymore.


He's become the legal equivalent to Michael Moore.

It seems he's been stricken from the bar for 90 days by the Florida Legislature. I'd find a link, but can't see one... :|

Suck it Thompson

For all you and your ilk's preaching that teenagers are nothing more than mindless killing machines, punks, junkies etc the reality is that it's your generation that's been acting as one senator so ironically put it like "nasty naughty bad boys"
