Jack Thompson, a disbarred lawyer who has vocally decried violence in video games, said he will try to stop the release of Electronic Arts' upcoming video game, "Medal of Honor Limited Edition".
The guy is a republican for god sakes.. Ofcourse he wants violent games banned
Republicans LOVE violence, they just pretend they don`t when it`s convient.
...The hell? Did I go back in time or something because I thought this guy was long gone.
I reckon game companies hire him to promote their games.
anyone seen Equilibrium?! Nuff Said he only does this stuff because he believes there's cash involved in it.
Yeah, because it's JUST Republicans that want to tell you how to live your life... right.
"The guy is a republican for god sakes Hillary Clinton. 'nuff said. ."
EXACTLY what I was going to say. I hate both parties. Pretty much all politicians suck.
Didn't this dude recently get busted for child pron on his puter. I know he got popped for sumthing such hypocrisy from this cat. here it is!!! http://www.joystiq.com/2008...
@Ivan I am a republican however; I dont agree with banning the game so shut your mouth kid, before I pull an Italian Stallion and drop your @$$
Gotta love partisan kool aid drinkers. Democrats were behind the PMRC, and recent bill to make selling MA games illegal to minors. Watch out for all politicians.
Jacko's attempt to ban violent video games has nothing to do with him being a Republican. That's like saying Chuck Norris wants violent video games banned as well.
people complain about games corrupting kids minds when its hard to browse the internet for an hour without seeing some form of nudity or bad language. also who cares that you can play as the the enemy in the game. its debatable who is the bad guys in afghanistan anyway.
lol, not this old fool again. He should just give up.
he went on with his life after gettin barred from law in florida. If he couldnt get anything accomplished with GTA fiasco, then i know for a fact he wont do anything to MOH. All he is doing is making the devs/pubs more money.
LMAO at "Jack Thompson should be smacked across the face with an Atari 2600."
Not 2600 but a 5200 or Jaguar instead.
what about the power glove? It's that bad.
I was thinking of Atari there
No....an Apple Pippin.
This guy still exists? damn
I was thinking the same thing too
"I am speaking on behalf of a number of people who believe that EA should not be selling such a game to minors, particularly one that allows one to play the role of the Taliban." EA is not selling the game to minors you fucking nimwit. If a M rated game is sold to a minor its the retailers fault, Gamestop, Walmart, Best Buy, etc, not EA. EA does have its own store online but you must purchase by credit or debit card, and to get one you need to be 18 years old. So chances are if a minor is buying an M rated game online, he/she is using Mommy or Daddy's credit card, and the purchase is made under their name, not the minors.
LMAO! He's STILL alive? Dammit. I've gotta get a refund from those damn ninjas ... Really, does anybody take what this guy says seriously? He's the laughing stock of the Games industry and its fans and he sits right up along with Fox News on the Maximum Stupidity Meter.
Lmao! Fox News!
People that don't have a life. They aren't doing to help people, they are doing it to be known or just for the money. Lawyers are evil, most are and just feed off of people's problems.
And the lawyers support the democrats!!! Just ask Howard Dean xD
Not this cuntbag again.
This guy got his lawyer license taken away, how can someone look at anything he does seriously??.. What a loser.. (I was gonna write "looser" after reading the same thing many times on this site.. lol)
He is not even a lawyer anymore because he showed ghey porn at a court trial (seriously). He is no threat to anyone.
I hope this toolbag realizes that a kid can see more violence in ten mins on the evening news. It's almost like a sociopathic "Joker" kind of rant. He's the most immense loser I've ever heard. The guy showed same sex pics in court by accident. This guy singlehandedly lowers the mean IQ of the entire gaming community. May his mother die of cancer in his arms.
Huh? He is still alive?
Hopefully that changes soon.
Everybody stop giving a shit what he had to say a loooooong time ago
He is a liar. There has never been any direct link between video games and violence or violent acts. Anything that has supported that claim has been anecdotal at best. PS- If this is what he looks like... well, he looks like a deviant himself. He really does look like the epitome of a shyster (ex)lawyer.
can we eriously get all the MoH banners in on one side of the room and EALA and DICE on the other to explain to the dimwits wat MoH is i swear all this ignorance is just killing me you'd think they'd do some research on the game that their trying to ban instead of spouting random crap edit: i hope this gates guy isnt as stupid as the rest of the politicians in the white house involving video games EA should take all these whiners to court for trying to screw them over
Obvious troll is obvious. The game is being sold to adults not minors. You have to be 17+ to play an M rated game.
This guy never learns
Jack Thompson reads N4G btw. This is a fact.
WTF is Hillary Clinton then? Shes a frikin lib and highly against violent video games, she wants them all banned as well too. Dont be fooled by either side or what the media favors. Its all a fraud and has always been. They are both bad, its not just republicans, liberals are no better and in some cases much worse!
wb jack long time no c :)
I swear to god that this guy is a zombie. And he deserves a death worthy of such.
This controversy is starting to piss me off because people make so many games on world war 1 and 2 which so many people died in then nobody really complains then this gets announced then everyone is trying to stop it from coming out because it has the taliban. Man people can not take what's really happening in the world these days.
He mentions selling to minors...Buddy that's why we have a rating system from E-M. It's up to the parents job to decide.
He's like the ultimate troll!
Just let the old coot do his thing he wont be around forever if he thinks its so important good luck im sure ill find a game to play .
hey Jack Thompson, fuck you!
This guy should just stop he'll never win and we all know that
