I haven't met a single person on these forums who doesn't love video games.

Jack Thompson hates them. He has sued several game companies because he thinks they cause "violence".

Jack Thompson promised to give 10,000 dollars to charity if someone made a game about a person who takes revenge on video game companies. when several were made, he said it was a joke. So, the creators of the webcomic Penny Arcade, gave the money on his behalf .On the check was "For Jack Thompson, because Jack Thompson won't."

Jack Thompson tried to get them arrested.


To me he seems like a horrible person. Who agrees?

Jack Thompson hates gays for no reason. Homophobia is gay, no pun intended, and I personally think that his hatefulness is gonna send him to hell.

I haven't heard about this video game thing though, what a laugh. If he thinks he's going to do the right thing and try to get rid of violent video games, he really shouldn't do it with so much hate, since in the end he's still promoting it, which = bad.

I'm against him b/c of him blaming a person's violent behavior on the the video game industry and not their social life, upbringing, and personality. It's always somebody else's fault.

Serious; society needs to grow the f**k up.

Video games do nothing wrong to you. I mean, so what if I want to go pimp slap a hooker, than chainsaw a cop? video games didn't make me wanna do thta, I just have issues.

Although, when I was younger, I ran into the wall because I thought I was Sonic. I mena, I had on my sonic costume and thought that if I ran i would go super fast but I missed the door and hit the wall.

I too totally hate him. But the thing is he thrives on this kind of crap because it gets his name out there. Like those I hate Jack Thompson t-shirts. I think the best thing to do is have game mags and blogs and stuff just ignore this dumbass. Eventually he'll go away. Then we can all hate on him and be happy together.

Indeed. He's already bought loads of weapons, planes, etc. ...Using up all your budget on military while people get just the minimum=Stupid. Using up 10-15% of your budget and boasting about having the most powerful military while your people live comfortably and boasts the largest philantropist population=WHY THE F**K NOT?!

If I lived comfortably, I'd probably buy a helicopter just for the hell of it...but certainly not if I had house payments, etc.

And I like Tabby's hypothesis very much inded, makes sense. I'd like someone to sit a game console in front of Jack 'ere and make him play some good games, show their not all bad.

^^I'm pretty sure he'll find something negative. Besides, the only games he'd advocate are ones where everyone's holding hands, singing "Kumbaya," smokin' dope, wearing tie-dye, etc.

People that suddenly snap are why you should fear the "no violence, ever" guy more than the guy that vents on video games.

Never been here before, was looking around and saw the name "Jack Thompson"...had to hop in. I dislike this guy because of the double standards he displays, especially the "I hate violence but I won't hesitate to slather you with hatred" mentality.

Just read his wikipedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Thompson_(attorney)) for all the asshattery he's ever done. It even extends beyond video games if you can believe that.

Matt-So Avery, I heard the Virginia Tech Shootings were influenced by a video game.
Avery-YOU HEARD THAT FROM JACK THOMPSON AND HE IS A LYNG JERKFACE!
Matt-....I was kidding, I haven't heard that yet.
Avery-Yes you did, I read the artical online.
Molly-OMG REALISTIC FICTION!

No. In fact my eyes have gouged themselves out because of that sentence.

Jacko is a madman. He blames everything on games. He has been sentenced to multiple psychiatric evaluations for his insane claims.

My favorite example of his insanity is a long story...

He had proposed that the game industry make a very, very, VERY violent game based on his description (see a Modest Game Proposal) which, if made JT would donate a considerable sum to a charity of the company's choosing. It was never made because the donation was considerably less than that of the cost to make a game. However some homebrew guys came together and made I'M O.K:A Thompsonsoft Murder Sim. Which was actually quite fun. Sadly Jack said "DAH I WAS ONLI JOKING GAWD YOU GAMERS R DUM"

...but that's not the end. The Penny Arcade guys donated the money in his name to charity. How nice, sadly JT didn't like this and SUED THEM for this. Madman.

And let's not forget this. (http://www.vgcats.com/jack.php)

I'm sure Jack Thompson would realise gamers aren't psychopaths if every gamer in the world gave him a hug and copped a feel.

No, we must persuade Jack Thompson that Psychonauts is evil as well. Let's see:

Sasha: "Young man, I hope you have learned a lesson here today."
Razputin: "Yes, I have...that shooting things is fun and useful!"

Ooh and let's not forget all the making out that goes on.

Don't forget about the destruction of property(Punching trash cans and blowing them up), killing animals (roasting squirrells and eating them for health), smoking (sasha), drinking (sasha), sexing (Oly/Bunny), murdering (butcher dad), profanity (Sasha "ass", Raz "Hell"), adult situations (making out, mutation, brain stealing), stealing (Raz stole Sasha's psychoportal)and overall shenanagins that's in Psychonauts.

Dude, with a T rating, Psychonauts got off pretty easy. Let's hope Jack Thompson reads THIS

If we act violent, he'll further 'justify' his claims. However, laughing in his face for not cashing out and being one-upped by Penny-Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com) is perfectly acceptable.
