If Jack Thompson believes these games cause violence and are 'training devices' then since he is the ONLY one that believes this who isnt to say that he could be influenced to kill and be evil since his mind only reacts that way to violent games?

I think more people are likely to have evil intentions over Jack Thompsons nonsense rather than picking up a game like this or GTA and going 'emmm now who to kill?'

Shooting games are fantasy you kill the characters on the screen no where does it say WHO to kill in the REAL WORLD although in this case JT comes to mind only because he is now seriously one annoying SOB.

The news article here is a bit bland and doesn't actually say who Jack apparently said this to.

Any chance of someone linking the original interview?

The most disgusting creature on planet (Besides Paris Hilton) has spoken again and has bestowed upon us more of his dumbness. Sure Jack, Rockstar will also bundle list of their enemies and targets with Manhunt2 so when children are trained enough by it, they go and kill those targets for R* in real life. Someone please had the award of dumbest creature to Mr Thompson. Maybe he should spend some time with Paris Hilton in jail...

Wouldn't the developers of the game have to be killers to be able to truly train others to kill through a game they develop? I mean, I can train anyone to go fly fishing since I don't know how to.
