A look at the legacy of one of the video game industry’s most hated figures.
Good Guy Jack Thompson, uniting fanboys against a common enemy.
From now on, he should be included in every "Top Video Game Villains of all Time" list :) edit: spelling
Did that guy actually ever play GTA or any other videogames? Or was he just like the rest of them, biased and ignorant?
If there was a douche bag equivalent of the Nobel Peace Prize he'd be like Michael Phelps.
talking about this? http://www.youtube.com/watc... The guys crying -.- what a douche phelps is
No, I meant he'd have like 22 of them.
What???? He is adorable. Give him a rattle somebody.
Is he still alive?
That's a perfect example of a guy who found a cause, no matter how flawed it was, and decided to dedicate his life to achieving some "greater good". He seems to think that by getting rid of violent video games, especially the GTA series, the world will be a better, safer place. Who knows what goes on in this guy's head or what he does in private. People like him usually wind up being sickos.
"In the world I lived in, heroes only existed in comic books. And I guess that'd be okay, if bad guys were make-believe too, but they're not."
Why does he look kind of like Jon Stewart?
VAAS is amazing too. :D
Good old Jacky boy, I miss his hilarious rants.
And just like countless end game bosses, he was defeated. All we had to do was drain his powers, by getting him disbarred.
Honestly, I never thought Jack Thompson was much of a threat to my owning violent video games. He was just some blow hard screaming in the wind, unable to change anything. Now that he is disbarred, he is even less threatening. Leland Yee and Hillary Clinton on the other hand actually have real power to restrict the sale of violent video games and I'm honestly surprised at how ignorant most gamers are about the threat those two pose.
no, the greatest villain is governments around the world.
