What a moron. Doesn't know that when a kid goes bad, it is not the games he plays, but generally the lack of good parenting? All the political correctness is going to drive us all into chaos. Let people speak their minds and if it offends you, don't listen, but don't tell us what to think. Mr. Thompson must feel that he can control how we raise our children.

Owtdoor, I'm under the impression you've not heard of Jack Thompson before? This is one of many acts of his arrogance, stupidity and some fancy word that I've yet to learn.

His name does not ring a bell, but I seem to know the type. What else has he done that I should be appalled by?

fuckin' A (sorry for those who find that offensive) things like this piss me off. I don't understand what he is even trying to accomplish with this. Nothing he says will ever make the company just stop as long as people are willing to pay for the game. From what I've seen in high school the messed up people are not from video games (well some are messed up form them but not in a violent cop killing way, but more of a antisocial shut in), but from there parents and our shitty schools (not the schools, but the majority of idiots controlling them and teaching in them). Excessively conservative nut jobs trying to tell us the moral way to live our lives. I have a Spanish teacher right now who is both racist and unable to keep her religion to herself. Added to that she is lazy and can't teach. Anyways it took a collaboration of most of her students to even allow the administration to listen to us along with countless phone calls. Even more fault in my mind lies with the administration who did nothing until the last minute (she has been released form service at the end of the year). The problem I see with this is that it took months and way to much effort before anyone would analyze her stability and ability to educate. The fact that the tax payers money allows her to live her immoral life just makes me angry.

/end rant...

Just to shift the discussion from personalities and to play Devils Advocate here, if there is no moral constraints on video games just how far are you prepared to see them go? I know this is an old debate and these arguments have been raised before but would you be equally defensive of a game in which you played a rapist or a pedophile??

I would not like it (and I assume that most people in the world would not) and thus it would not sell. The game doesn't need the reform, but the people do. If a game like you are suggesting was created and thus sold I would be pissed off at the people who find pleasure in even pretending to do that and not the people who made the game. I don't support GTA4 either, and probably never will, but I don't think that it's the companies fault (certainly not the mother of the owner of the company's fault) that society enjoys playing those kind of roles.

I wonder if this guy goes after people who make R rated films.... or novels depicting graphic violence... or my all time favorite, gangsta rap music.

If somebody has violent tendencies, better that they get it out of the way in a video game instead of some alley in New York.

If some dumb shit kid was stupid and psycho enough to murder a police officer in Alabama, then he would have done it regardless of what video games he was playing. Obviously, the kid was fucked up in the head and was dangerous to society because of his environment and / or genetics.

not to sound to stereotypical, but eh just seems like another religious freak on the corner preaching about how society is doomed to hell and what not. Only difference is that this guy has some political power. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

...have you seen who your president is recently??

The truth is that we ony invoke and staunchly defend the freedom of speech argument when it suits us, crimes which are seemingly glamourous - like murder and theft are more acceptable than others and that double standard is in itself a testament to the power of mass media to shape our minds
