With the video game event of the year - the Halo 3 launch - just days away, game-hatin' attorney Jack Thompson is apparently seeking to re-create one of his greatest non-triumphs.
wow you'd think that Jack would pick a game that is actually has gore... say like Conan and Jericho
Welome to the ignore list SonySoldiers.
I think Jack is doing the right thing and Halo should be banned. It is clearly evident that the smaller grunts in the halo games represent little persons. (aka Midgets) I feel that this is just like the resident evil 5 game. Start with the young kids and raise them with hate and racism. What will happen in the future if halo continues with it's success? Think about it. No more elves at the Malls during christmas, No wizard of Oz remake, No mini me or wii man just prejudice. Continue Jack with your path of righteousness. Edit: Obviously people can not tell when something is a joke. lol
Are you serious?
I thought it was Jack Ass?
Can people stop being fanboys please? I don't like the Halo games at all, but this doesn't even need to become a stupid flame contest.... Back on topic - I don't see anything wrong with Halo 3, I can see why he might be attacking GTA, but in Halo you are killing aliens most of the time. Does he think this game will influence kids to kill aliens? lol stupid John Daily lookalike
THE FACTS 8. Defendants Best Buy and Microsoft are presently selling, for delivery commencing on October 25, 2007, the violent, interactive video game” entitled Halo 3. (This must have been prepared along time ago.)
If you read the actual document, he also calls Best Buy and Microsoft "foreign companies doing business in the state of Florida" I am not sure where Best Buy's corporate HQ is, but Microsoft is based in Redmond WA. Now they also have offices in other countries, but they are a US corporation. Let's just hope the judge has the foresight to read this pleading and dismiss the case. Either way, With the full weight of Microsoft AND Best Buy, this will be a short case.
@ SonySoldiers - You fail to see the big picture. If he attacks Halo 3, what's stopping him from attacking MGS4 or RE5 or any other game, regardless of what console it's on? Put your fanboyism aside and support a greater cause...free speech and the right to choose your own entertainment.
But he can't get it banned because it would be an infringement of the 1st amendment. So this is retarded news like the storyline of halo and its A.I
If Jack thinks he can actually stop Halo3, he's a bigger moron than the gaming industry already thinks he is. Then again, maybe he just wants some free money from MS.
Hey Jackie what about Manhunt 2 on Wii? Why pick on Halo? It's people like him that unite all the fanboys/console haters together because nobody wants to hear him trash talk any game...(except Tamagotchi...)
Someone assassinate this NEWB
Do you really think these kind of posts help the situation? It's ironic that you as a gamer think someone who opposes games because of suspected aggression adding effects, should be killed because of his views. You're just helping Thompson. Hopefully Thompson-minded people don't visit this site, because otherwise you would be in trouble. Internet is not a place where you can say anything you like and get a way with it. Recently there was a trial about defamation of character, as some people called one celebrity a whore and mentally ill, along with other non-flattering names and attributes. When asked about their motives after they had received big fines, the people said they thought nobody would find out who left the comments. Funny, isn't it?
MOTHER [email protected] GET RID OF THIS GUY (NO QUESTIONS ASKED)
All gamers know this guy is a giant turd. We can't shut him up...legally. Maybe he'll 'slip' and fall in the street and get his skull run over by a trash truck. Pretty gruesome. But he deserves it for being such an attention whore.
Haha! Stop Halo 3's release? This guy just reached an all-time low. If he manages to stop Halo 3 then I'll eat my hat! Halo doesn't even have gore! He's probably just doing this for attention.
Oh my god, seriously, go the hell away and never come back. He's an embarrassment to respectable lawyers.
HAHA look at his hair!! man, I'd hate to be his kids.
It must suck to be his kid. Probably doesn't even let them play Atari...
My god. What the hell is Thompson freaking smoking? How is this a public nuisance? The first thing people are gonna do once they get the game is go home and play it. Not loot the place. This guy needs to get disbarred.
wow did a bunch of game devs butt smash him when he was younger y can u hate video games so bad
Thompson's just a media whore who wants to be on television. Hopefully he loses his law license soon so that he'll just go away.
Hasnt this guy got anything else better to do?
Would some please shoot him already and save us.
I need a reason to get some sympathy. How about GTA made me do it?
We may have different consoles but we all have the same enemy....Jack!
not that it needed any more but thanks anyway Jack
Jack just wants attention.. "ignore jack".. new gamer slogan
He gets it aprroved and 6 million people run to his house and shoot him!
My only question is, why is MC tea-bagging the PS3 and Sony, when he should be tea-bagging this guy?...
I've been waiting for this. The day where Thompson's ire spreads from simply the violent and controversial in our beloved entertainment medium, to ALL videogames. You all know me to be a staunch Sony supporter, but you have my full blessing Halo 3. I loath you, but you a game and deserve to be played. I hate you Jack, more than a loathe a rabid 360 fan. We can all align in our hatred for this man.
the guy should paint his face and put on a bright red nose...that squeeks... what a clown.....
so since he's all of our public nuisance can we get him banned?
he's in serious need of a reality check.
all he has too do is bring up some of the stuff that happend at the sony launches with people shooting others in line.....dont be surprised...sonysoldiers your also a idiot....you dont know that if he goes for halo and wins...whats next..MGS4 ...yeaa your really smart.
Actually it might be Mass Effect with its promises of hot alien lesbo sex. Which don't get be wrong, I will be playing lol. For PC of course.
You, sir, need to go into marketing. Your comment right there just got some preorders.
If I ever see him, I WILL kill him for the good of us all.
this is the kind of stuff that actually damages the "Gaming Community", not Jack Thompson but the people who totally freak out when he says bad things about Video Games. Thus proving his point...Calm down
Emperor Palpatine will be pleased!!!
Been from England i have only heard of him from this website, but he seems like a real annoying forker, i think he must have a really small pen15 so is looking to lash out
I really doubt he has one. His kids(nothing against them btw) are a bunch of miracles.
.......... (yes that is ALL Jack gets from me)
This guy needs to get laid...political sh1t like this is what makes america so sensative...if u dont like gaming do buy anything to do with gaming mind ur business...you have a choice to buy and not to buy period.
I say from now on fanboys are Jack Thompson's B!tches because they attack other games based only on the fact that it's on another system. btw uhh I got like 10 bucks in my pocket anybody wanna pitch in and hire a hitman?
No matter what system your a fan boy for this is bad news for all gamers. Do you think he would care what console or what the game is really about, No. He cares about ending gaming period. This is one topic that ps or xbox or nintendo fans should put away their differences and appose this guy all together. This is rediculous, how can a person that is as closed minded as this guy speak louder than all of us gamers together. Well i have to say something, if they ever tried to put games down as a public dissorder, i'll get out of the military. The rites that i'm fighting for are being taken away from stupid aces like this. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope people agree with me. (i wont really get out of the service, but i would be really upset and it would come to question just what rites i am defending if people like this are running the country)
[email protected] straight! ever here of the patriot act, yah there always trying to take the publics freedoms away it'll will only get worse if don't stop them now that is why everybody must register to vote its our duty to stop sh!theads and sh!t laws likes this from continuing
I support Jack in this specific campain.
and why is that what is your valid reason for supporting this pr!ck?
Jack must work for Sony.
I'm not going to lash out like most people would. I'm just going to ask a simple question and all i'm going to really request is a simple answer. Why are you on N4G with a post like that? You are obviously not thinking this through. Should we ban cars and oil all together because of a few drivers that have road rage, or the fact people fite over gas at the pumps. No that has never even been brought up. But this guy wants to dispute a product that sells at wal mart while their is a war in iraq, and the the terrorist populated areas of the world. Or what about those oil prices, whats up with those. No he has to target a dag on game of which will actually help the majority of the public with hand eye coordination, and possibly keep a kid off the street actually shooting something other than aliens from outer space. In short this guy has put as much thought into this, as I do brands of cottage cheese, and their differences.
that some Sony fans think he is right! How fracking dumb are you? Do you really think that he would stop at Halo 3? If it was up to him we would have NO games at all. No 360, no PS3, no WII, no DS, no PSP. It must really suck to be his kid. I'm so glad I live in the UK where he would be laughed out of court.
thought you guys had one of your own (may be wrong and don't know his name) but could've sworn I had heard about some guy there stirring up trouble for gamers a couple of weeks ago
...pays for sex with under age kids. What a tosser - some people will say/do anything to keep up a media profile.
JT thinks he can touch an AAAA game. LoL. I can't wait to have Microsoft bichslap him with a lawsuit or something. Lmao It would be nice for JT to attack a game that has bad stuff in it. I see nothing that has that on or in the works in the market. Manhunt 2 being only thing I would consider, but that is being redone to comply with ESRB or something I heard. How does this guy earn his money if he loses every case against closing the game industry. Someone take his pot of gold.
This is not about Sony Fanboys every PC gamer knows Halo is crap. Before you start flaming Sony Fanboy. Warhawk is utter crap I played it. While Flying is fun ground combat is the worse I ever saw. Also in Halo you cannot call anyone a noob in online because everyone who plays Halo is a noob due to massive Auto Aim Assit. Also every single REAL Gamer will be playing Crysis demo. Now thats a real Game.
There is very little else this man can do about video games. He doesnt have a snowball's chance in hell of banning anything, and he knows this. But when people constantly throws his name out there, you're feeding his publicity train, thus giving him more business. So if you want people to pay less attention to this moron, stop paying attention to him.
Sorry, but it is just fun to talk ish about this Turd named Jack.
No matter what system you like or games you play. We can all agree this guy is a douche. I almost wish I could see the world through his eyes just to understand what his major malfunction is... Seriously I can't understand him at all... Does he have like a book full of studies done or something. I wish he would write a book or something so I can understand... What does he do anyway? How does he get paid... How does he have time to make money with his anti- videogaming campaigns? Someone needs to kill this guy
i just thought i add my 10 cents worth . Take a look at Jack Thompson`s face ...the man looks like he`s never had a days worth of fun in his life and seem to think others should`nt either . Jack do yaself a favor m8 ..have a beer or two ..then have a good fu*k (if ya got 1 in you ) and then play some games dude ...sure beats being an asshole.
And here I thought he was going to go after Bioshock...oh wait thats a 2k game and they have an injunction or something against him so he's going after one of the most anticipated and mainstream Xbox games, good choice. How does this guy make money? How has he not been disbarred? And how come more game studios dont just sue him for being a nusience (or whatever) like 2K did?
Bad PR for gaming companies most likely. He would turn around and use it against them somehow. Use it and make gaming companies look bad I'm sure he would find a way to spin it.
but this guy is a CUNT excuse my language...
@SonySoldiers - Wow, your starting to sound as moronic as Nasim. Jack is a fºcking moron.
wow hes totally gay i cant believe he wants to ban it ... and that sux for Flordia if it happens
