Rockstar Games Statement (thanks Frans) has a reaction from the folks behind GTA to all the talk of the "hot coffee" sex mod for the game. They start off by saying "We fully support efforts to keep mature-rated video game content out of the hands of children," and go on to say: "We are disappointed by comments that misrepresent Grand Theft Auto, detracting from the innovative and artistic merits of the game. Unfortunately, the recent confusion only serves to suggest that games do not deserve the same treatment as other forms of creative expression. By promoting awareness, we can avoid propagating the fear and mistrust of a new entertainment medium." Meanwhile, Thompson Calls for ESA Pres Resignation on Kotaku has an Open Letter to the Members of the Entertainment Software Association from Jack Thompson, crusading attorney, who continues his attacks on the gaming industry by mentioning the Hot Coffee mod as well. In the letter he literally thanks the lord for an enemy like ESA president Doug Lowenstein before urging the association to jettison their head man in what can be comfortably described as a surprisingly hateful diatribe from the lawyer already known for such rhetoric. Thompson praises Senator Clinton's initiatives for trying to prevent a "calamity" he predicts will be "like Columbine to the factor of ten" while using most of his space to vehemently attack Lowenstein, in some cases personally, going so far as to invoke an analogy, albeit a vague one, to Hitler (long considered the benchmark of when internet arguments have lost any value).
