Hahahaha, that actually made me laugh out loud at 7am.

I've got to confess, I love Jack Thompson's antics. I mean playing games is only half the fun, the other half belongs to them being the subject matter of his ridiculous preacher-rants. I personally have never shot anyone in the face, but that's just me, i'm just one person, i'm sure there's thousands of gamers out there who commit homicide on a daily basis due to games.

I hope he reads that article...though he probably wouldn't see the irony in it.

...because we've never seen a gun pointed at someone's face outside of GTA, right? It's not like it's ever happened in a movie, perhaps, or even on TV. Ever watched 24, Mr. Thompson? Maybe you should.

I think what we have here is a guy that just got hit by one too many barrels on Donkey Kong so now he's on a vendetta against video games.

That.....is.....hilerious. XD

"Thompson suggested to the authorities that they search their homes for gaming paraphernalia." That line cracked me up. :p No one's looking for bomb kits or drugs anymore, nope, instead they are on the hunt for gaming paraphernalia. :p Look out world! The gamers are out to get you!

Guess I'd better lock myself in my room or else I may shoot someone in the face.

Guess I'd also better not play Trauma Center or else I may start saving lives! And we certainly wouldn't want that now would we? :p

@DJ - So does that mean I can start running around the streets of Ottawa screaming "THE COMBINE ARE COMING! THE COMBINE ARE COMING!" ??

And at the article. Man, I don't know whether to laugh or bow my head in shame at how pathetic this is all becoming. I mean searching for gaming paraphenalia? What the hell? Oh yeah never mind, he loves publicity.

No one had sex until video games came along either. It was all babies being delivered by airmail before that. Damn, video games are corrupting our society! Quick! Burn them all before they start affecting our Zoos in some shape or form!

Lol video games cause global warming

IGN said:
hompson needs no introduction to the gaming community. For years he's been vocally condemning games as the cause of youth violence, global warming, hurricanes, bird flu, and teen pregnancy.

I bet he couldn't get away from the ghosts in Pacman or pick up a hooker in GTA... thus the saga began.

Remember a time, roughly 30 years ago, when video games were just getting started and people weren't being shot in the face? Florida lawyer Jack Thompson is on a crusade to return the world to that time.
That part made me laugh; Jack Thompson is on a "crusade" to be seated on the throne of stupidity.

That part I bolded... You seriously have to be kidding me, Jack Thompson's logic rivals that of Kent Hovind (who also happens to be pretty delusioned).

The opportunist has recently seized on another violent crime to evangelize his message to the world: usually some variation of "video games will be the downfall of society!"
Yep, pretty delusional.

The best part of the whole article:

I don't see how he can piss you off, he's become a walking parody of himself.

He's pissing me off, because he's claiming things which are false and retarded. Personally, I hate liers and stupid people. Yes, he has made himself a walking parody, but on the other hand, I read somewhere that some absurd parents are joining his cause. If more of that happens, then eventually, he will have enough witnesses and support to shut down gaming itself.

Just a little rant from me. Ignore it if you can.

He's already has a few bills passed in certain states.


I can see it now:

News Article: "13 yr. old kills friend while attempting to fuse with him. Sources have stated that the two boys were watching the popular animated television series Dragon Ball Z prior to the killing."

Jack Thompson: "This cartoon... this work of the devil known as Dragon Ball Z, is teaching our kids how to shoot energy balls at each other. They are teaching our children that god is an alien from another planet, and that you can make wishes on a dragon's balls!!! They are also teach our countries children that screaming for extended periods of time can make you stronger! We must stop this now before some poor child tries to kamehameha their teacher!!!"

*Poor attempt at humor*

Oh man, this guy's just getting worse and worse. :p

I'd pity him if there weren't people who actually believed his bull****.

I wonder if he's ever heard of paintball... I've been quite a few times, there's a lot more killer-instinct in a paintball game than any computer game that I've played. I've shot people in the face... with a paintball gun.

Somebody should do to him what they do with that guy in clockwork orange and tie him to a chair and force him to watch game after game... I dunno... this guy just needs a slap.

He might as well quit, I mean, who the hell would take him seriously (except the amish), when saying stuff like teen pregnancy is caused by gaming ? What the hell dude, that would mean machines have semen o_O
