Yeah, its also funny that he calls the original article he wrote "a satirical piece" then goes on to say hes on some mission from god... what kind of nut job writes satirical stories about the video game industry, then says hes trying to stand up for homosexuals (among others obviously) and THEN claims its a mission from god?

OH MY GOD!!!
http://www.penny-arcade.com/index.php
Bottom of the page!

From Penny Arcade:
"It was only a matter of time until a mod team took Jack Thompson's disgusting revenge fantasy and made it flesh - and, just as I suggested, it was deemed insufficient.

Thompson now claims that his repellent suggestion was "satire," and we must conclude that his financial offer was also satire, some new breed of satire apparently that I'm sure is just hilarious to people in need.

You know what, Jack? We're going to be the men you're not. You said that your insulting, illusory ten thousand dollars would go to the charity of Paul Eibeler's choice. We've got a good guess that he'd direct your nonexistant largesse toward The Entertainment Software Association Foundation, a body that has raised over six point seven million dollars over the last eight years. We've just made the donation you never would, and never meant to. Ten thousand dollars' worth. And we made it in your name. "

Wow... just... wow... eat that Jack

PA got him even more... http://www.gamespot.com/news/6135940.html

Penny Arcade co-founders Jerry Holkins and Mike Krahulik have fired back, accusing Thompson of hypocrisy in kind. After learning that Thompson would not make any donations, the pair announced they have given $10,000 in his name to the Entertainment Software Association Foundation. The ESAF, which recently completed a charity auction, pledges monetary support to such philanthropic causes as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and the Child Welfare League of America.

Man, this just keeps going:
http://www.livejournal.com/users/gam...cs/110152.html

He actually called the police on penny arcade for being mean... jesus christ, hes allowed to say that the guys at Rockstar should be slaughtered for creating a "cop-killing murder simulation" but as soon as someone calls him on his BS and makes him look like an ass he cries and calls it "criminal harassment".

I really doubt hes going to accomplish anything by this except make himself look like an idiot. He might end up making some gaming community people look dumb too (like penny arcade...) but as of right now he's the one that looks like a tool

Holy crap! Man he needs to be arrested for harrasing the police. This isn't the first time he has called/contacted the police on such a stupid matter.

There's an interesting article linked at Anand:

http://gr.bolt.com/articles/violence/violence.htm

Youth crime rate is going down (at least in the US); this would prove that evergrowing market of videogames has not affected at all the crime rate among minors.

I think I've read that article before... its a good one. One thing thats funny though is "homocide offending by age" chart that shows a huge spike around the time the Playstation, Doom and Wolfenstien 3d came out. (yes im kidding, I realize it was already rising before then).

As much as I agree that the videogame market hasn't changed crime much, that's not necessarily causal. Sure, there's a correlation, but you could easily assert (and have no real evidence to the contrary) that without the video game market, crime would've gone down even faster. I should stress - I agree that video games have stuff-all to do with crime. At the end of the day, people need to take responsibility for their own actions (in my opinion), but figures such as this don't necessarily make a logical attack on the oppositions arguments - they merely weaken their plausibility.

EDIT: Admittedly, that attack on plausibility is pretty significant. They can't have it both ways on this front. If they want to claim that video games have a huge impact on the temperament of those who play them, and if there's been a negative correlation between video game production and crime, they'd have to assert that there was some causal link. If they claim that video games have no impact on the decreasing crime rate, how can they make a valid claim that video games are such a negative influence at all?
