Nice teeth. And what the **** is with that article? Jack Thompson is spiraling deeper into obsession and delusion, and what he's proposing radically and shamelessly unconstitutional. And the guy who wrote the article can "understand and respect the fact that he truly believes violent gaming is the root of so many tragedies across the globe"? That's like saying "I understand and respect the fact that this homeless guy on the street corner truly believes that the mole people will rise from the underworld to feast on our tonsils" This is total insanity, let's not act like this is a real debate.

Thompson's letter to Obama makes mention of the recent massacre in Germany and speculation that the killer "trained on Mature-rated games" for the event.
Aren't such games already illegal in Germany? If this speculation is true, then it actually proves that banning these games will not stop bloodshed.

Hope it turns out that Obama has played Doom.

That would be cool, and it would shut him the **** up.

Err no they aren't. They just can't sell the uncut version to someone under 18. Funnily enough Jack was one of the people advocating a legally enforced 18+ rating. Although it simply wouldn't work anyway. Media that is MA15+ in Australia for instance is legally enforced but that does little to deter stupid parents.

Haha I was going to get the exact piece of info from the OFLC site but it's down. http://www.oflc.gov.au/ Nice one guys.

Well Jacko, the Bible praises Samson for killing 2000 people, so it must be okay!

I never understood the story of Samson and the fascination that Christians have with him.

I mean... this is a guy who is told NEVER to cut his hair... and yet your typical conservative christian hates long hippy hair. :LOL:

And Jesus is also depicted as having longer flowing hippy hair...


"Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?" I Corinthians 11:14


EDIT: This article is so lawl.

http://www.tbaptist.com/aab/jesuslonghair.htm


Preachers, Churches and Parents Must Stand Against Long Hair.
Parents who allow a son to grow and wear long hair are contributing to a rebellion against God and against our country. This is a sure step in losing control of a child. Preachers and Churches who compromise on this subject, hoping to reach more young people are actually fighting against God. Let us stand, whatever the cost!

We believe that Christian Young men, when taught the truth, will want to wear their hair short. Informed Christian's will not want to be identified with the "SHAME" or revolutionary revolt that long hair symbolizes.

I was under the impression that in Germany there was no rating above 15+ and it was illegal to sell an unrated game, making any game that would otherwise be rated as 18+ illegal to sell to anyone.

You know that the vast majority of people back then had long hair right? Haircuts werent quite as common as they are today.

Ender the Xenocide was a child and did not know the war was real; yet he chose to destroy a populated planet in his game. I am an adult and have known all along the game was real; but I did not know I was a player. Is my blame greater or less than the Xenocide's if another world is destroyed and another raman species obliterated? What is my path to simplicity now?

In early April 1999, I appeared on NBC's Today show with the parents of the three girls killed in their Paducah, Kentucky Heath High School by a fourteen-year-old video gamer who trained to kill them on Doom.

Hey, those three girls killed really looked like floating skulls.

...hmmm. I dunno if that's in poor taste or not.

Forgive me if I am remembering incorrectly but did he not once try to get Mechwarrior banned? He has no real credibility and is always trying to stir up a shit storm against "teh eviel vidya gaems". No one really knows what his problem is , maybe he could not beat Bowser or something but whatever. I have said this before and I will say it again , in many cases video games relieve anger and stress. He needs to actually sit down and play the things he is calling evil first. If after that he still thinks they are evil , so be it because it still won't make a difference.
