Default Jack Thompson Needs to STFU and Die.

So according to him, because "Mature" rated games usually fall into the hands of kids ...the answer is just ban it. Ban a game before it's even had a preview dropped or hit the shelves.

So you have idiot parents letting their kids get hold of guns, which is all ok.
Just aslong as they don't play GTA IV , it'll be the end of the World.

Time to ban porno , smokes, violent movies, violent TV, horror movies, guns, fast food and everything else slightly interesting.

Good solution dumbass!

I say ban retarded irresponsible parents, or actively encourage retard unfit mothers to have abortions.

This is not an early April Fool’s day joke. Jack Thompson, the U.S. attorney and Christian conservative activist, is threatening Take-Two for Grand Theft Auto IV ahead of its October 17, 2007 release.

In an open letter to the CEO of Take-Two, Thompson warns the publisher that he will “be filing shortly a lawsuit to prohibit, by injunction, the sale of Grand Theft Auto IV.”

“There is absolutely no chance that GTA IV will be rated anything other than "Mature," advises Thompson. “So good luck in having your Blank Rome lawyers trying to persuade a court of law that it should be sold to minors, especially in light of the United States Federal Trade Commission's findings that 42% of the time underage kids can buy "Mature-rated" games.”

Seriously Mr. Thompson, have you considered waiting for a preview of the game before starting your crusade against GTA IV? May be the game is about riding unicorns to find a treasure at the end of a rainbow.

You know I would support GTA IV if they just made it some kiddy game, like barbie's horse adventure just to make Thompson look like a ****ing retard.

Jack Thompson really never gets anything accomplished, so I don't see why anyone is so worried.

Have you EVER actually played a Barbie game?
They ARE a million times worse than GTA or any other game for that matter, as they suck so much that they could swallow even the largest of Black Holes! Seriously they are horrible horrible games and should therefore be banned.

Gta IV on the other hand is going to be awesome and I'm gonna drive over and punch the **** out of some of the polygonal (and not very human-like) models just for Jack!!

first off, its obvious its not gonna happen. second, its rockstar so im sure even a rockstar barbie game would be good. and third, it would be a small price to pay to make Thompson stfu.

First off it was a joke(if you didn't get it). Second a rockstar barbie game would allow you to punch the **** out of horses/pigs/donkeys and whatever, as well as lose your virginity to some stranger. (this is also a joke if you have no sense of humour ) So instead of having Jack Thompsons after them, rockstar would have to put up with r-tards from greenpeace.

Third, Jack Thompson's is an asshole, and should therefore not deserve a new thread because even bad publicity is publicity!

I'm waiting for Rockstar to model some of their pedestrian NPCs after Jackass Thompson.

Guns don't kill people. Husbands who come home early do.

Next time your kid gets a bad grade in spelling or whatever, blame the pencil manufacturer.

JT is a ****tard.
