So by now you've read Electronic Arts stinging dismissal of controversial attorney Jack Thompson's offer to help it acquire Take Two Interactive. GamePolitics just received from Thompson a copy of his response to EA.
Is he still going after GTA? This seems like a sure fire way for him to feel justified in getting EA (a less boundary pushing company) to take over the GTA series and essentially disband Rockstar Games. His infamy will ultimately peg him in the books of gaming history as the man who ruined good gaming under the pretext of 'morals'.
He has never been successful in anything other than making himself look crazy.
EA wants nothing to do with him. He doesn't have this threatened "mystery" client either.
The thing thats going to hurt adult gaming (what Jack hates) is gamers themselves accepting censorship. If we stand up to it we'll win. Gamers are growing up. It won't always be old out of touch people running government... They'll probably stay out of touch but atleast won't automatically assume gaming is the devil.
Give it up Jack Rabbit.
He looks Insomniac.
Someone please SHUTUP that mental!
King Kaz will not tolerate this GIMP for much longer....... MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
And me you.
Why does anyone give this guy attention?
to ask to be help EA and when they turn them down to turn around and say "well I already have a client".
He acts like he is in a school yard fight and not a legal battle... heck Im surprized he hasnt called EA "n00bs"
... that idiots like these are allowed into courtrooms to defend victims.
That guys is mentally insane. I'm pretty sure of it. The dude belongs in an institution, or something. I cant believe a moron like this is a licensed lawyer. Did he blackmail his way through lawschool or something!?
A sad sad pathetic little fella. A laughable joke that stopped being funny a long long time ago.
The Florida bar association basically owned him last year. This guy is nothing but a side show. He might as well bring out is mystery client Jo Jo the talking Monkey... That will prove he means business with EA.
No more Thompson stories, it is all he wants, please everyone, no more
First off, they don't NEED him Secondly, this man is an AVID videogame hater. Thompson is hated THROUGHOUT the industry, whether it be a publisher, developer, or a fan. He is UNIVERSALLY hated by any and every aspect of the gaming world. Third, if they DID accept ANY help from him, they risk being shunned by the gaming world
any game company that works with this doosh is a scab.
The first step is not to even publish his letters. It seems every email sent or received by him gets forwarded on to various gaming websites. Just ignore his letters and deny him the attention he craves (good or bad).
Jack Thompson reminds me of Elmer Fudd, he points his guns at the gaming industry... then the gaming industry bends the gun and points it back at him and he shoots himself in the face every time...He'll never learn.... Oh and Jack, what game company would work with you, if they did they won't be around too long releasing Barbie fashion games...
The no. 1 media jackass is back... Seriously, didn't he get his license revoked, or did he dodge that one?
Jesus I almost punched myself today.... why? Because I was happy that Jack responded, because he is that guy I love to hate. I think he's a lot like a heel wrestler or the bad guy in a movie. Jack Thompson is like a retarded Darth Vader vs The Rebels, you know he will lose, has no bearings, often lies etc... but goddamn it.... ...I Love Hating Jack Thompson soooooo much. Thank for the humor and laughs, Jack I tip my beer at you for being an asshat and making me smile.
i can't wait for the next speech just to hate him some more... but thats sad i know... but i seem to do better in counter strike after Jack does his speech...i dunno why...its weird...he has this weird affect on me... but my counter strike K/D is not suffering... BTW Jack...its not kraft dinner
bubbles+ you are truly hillarious
Haha yeah... Reading his babble really increases my headshot count on COD 4... lol
This dudes a idiot.
ROFL@ "A IDIOT"
I am not even interested in what jack thomsons response has to say. He lost all credibility in my eyes. I'm not really sure why anyone even takes him seiously anymore. Sorry to be so negative, it's just my opinion.
When did he ever have credibility?
Lost all credibility? haha the guy hasn't really ever said anything intelligent. He's funny though. Ok see.. Jack knows when he says sh*t that is dumb as hell ... we all freak out and give him attention. He loves it just as much as we love him saying dumb sh*t we can call him on. Everytime he says something crazy and false it just makes me laugh because it just proves he hasn't even looked or played these games. He's pissed because some jerk beat him at Pac Man when he was a kid.
Go buy some Butter, turn that camera side ways & stick it up his Candy A$$!
