Jack Thompson: King of comedy.

I wonder if He's actually played Postal 2, because this happens in the game. A bunch of protestors, armed to the teeth, invade the Running With Scissors studios.

But I propose a game where you go and murder video game activist "Jackie Thomas" and her family.

So, he's proposing a game in which a guy takes out a murderous rampaging revenge on people in the video gaming industry.

One point though, this rampage is not caused by the person playing video games. Instead, it's caused by the disappointing outcome of a court case, because his son's murderer did not go to jail. But most importantly, the rampage was NOT caused by overplaying video games.

Ahh Jack Thompson, as ever skipping obliviously over potholes just so he can get a hit in the media headlines.

I think the gaming industry should openly question the mind of their head protestor, who has the ability to come up with such a fucked-up game. Maybe they can prove that he's the derranged one.

I'd play that. Multiple times over. Then sue Jack Thompson for making me kill a bunch of lawyers in the UK.

I'd buy it. Because if it was made, it'd probably get pulled from stores fairly quickly.

THEN SELL IT AT A FANCY EUROPEAN AUCTION M I RITE

Spiff: You wouldn't mind making this game, would you? You don't need to make it any good, just make a crappy, repetetive small game out of it. Then, we market it. Let people know that it's there. Send a copy to every major paper in the US. And let Thompson eat his words, and pay up :-)

But nooooooooooooo indeed. Besides, by the time you've read the above posts, it will have loaded (unless you're on a 56k modem, in which case it's amazing that you don't side with JT anyway ;))

He's really starting to slip. Have any of you checked out his site at www.stopkill.com ? They refer to him like a prophet and claim he
"predicted" that both the DC Sniping spree and the Columbine shootings were caused by video games. He even goes so far as to say that the Columbine shooters trained extensively on Doom and that the DC sniper used Halo in "God/Sniper" mode to get rid of his inhibition to kill....
What meaning has my life that the inevitability of death cannot destroy it?
