Jack Thompson vs. The Sims

Sims 2 content worse than Hot Coffee on GameSpot describes how crusading attorney Jack Thompson is directing his concerted anti-gaming focus on The Sims 2, saying its salacious unlockable content "is no different than what is in San Andreas, although worse." Hey Jack... pick on someone your own size!

We cant let snobby politicans think that one voice can not cause change, what is this? Russia? I wrote him a professional email explaining how disapointed I am of him as a public representative and his disgraceful disregaurd for our military. I urge everyone to do the same!

Hahahahhah. This is ironic. I posted this very example earlier in one of the GTA SA threads.

In sims 1 anyway, you can text edit a file to disable the blur. Aka its built in. No mod needed.

Ant it is indeed his e-mail as he accisentally sent the e-mail to the ESRB board and it has been posted at various gaming sites.

I'd've thought, EVEN IN THE U.S. you'd have to have a clue before making ridiculous claims like this.

I wish. Not to start some religious/ethical debate here, but all it takes is someone spouting nonsense about the Bible or "moral decay." Yeah, moral decay exists because half of the idiots in this country are idiot parents who want everyone ELSE to raise their kids.

datastorm: you had a great list of comparisons going on him. Jack Thompson:video game industry::Joseph McCarthy:Hollywood. It speaks volumes about his complete immaturity, idiocy, and ignorance that he said those things to someone who's a republican AND a soldier. I hope that his decision to take on EA ends with his ass in prison. People like him give America a bad name.

On a side-note here, did anyone else see the CNN segment talking about the R* ratings debacle? I loved how ALL of the footage was from Tommy from Vice City killing hookers and cops with various weapons, and then beating them after they were dead to make sure blood spurted out. So much for an objective media.

That's really him. He probably found it on his website:

There are a lot of Jack Thompsons names. I had an art teacher named Jack Thomspon.

Why? Do you think that Jack Thompson is a 14 year old kid?

I was referring to my teenage son.

This would make a great 'For TV' movie but unforently Phil Hartman is dead and couldn't play the part of Jack Thompson. I still get a kick out all the characters he played especially the Lawyer trying to get Homers Soul back from the Devil. "I sold my soul for a donut... I SOLD MY SOUL FOR A DONUT! AHHHHHHHH" -Homer Simpson.

bullshit. Lionel Hutz, attorney at law. I'd've thought, EVEN IN THE U.S. you'd have to have a clue before making ridiculous claims like this. Almost every word in his statements regarding The Sims are completely untrue. A "code" to turn it off, the fact that they have any sexual organs, etc. This guy should be deported to Iraq.

Also: "The blur can be disarmed. This is no different than what is in San Andreas, although worse". That quote again: "no different...although worse". Good logic, retard.

Im ready for EA to sue him into the ground for slander - oh that would be sweet. Its not too much of a stretch, considering the impact that he has had on the investors and stockholders of R*.

At the same time, I am quite eagerly awaiting an avenue of possibility for more "adult" (not porno) oriented games, with more mature storylines, disturbing depictions of violence, etc. etc.

At the moment - im thinking "win - win".

Datastorm there is no point in even talking to him, he's like my mother in law, she says the sky is pink, then it's pink and nothing will EVER change her mind.

Whats funny is I hope he really does go after EA, cause EA is gonna shut him down so fast it's not even funny. Not to mention all the news about it will show how stupid and how much of an idiot he really is.

Granted I did call him an idiot first, but indeed he has no clue about the industry he is sooo quick to attack. I hope those transcripts give you folks insight into the diluted mind of this arrogant individual. In the transscripts is his e-mail. I urge ALL of us to write him and let him know one voice supported by thousands CAN make a difference. i have also sent e-mails to Senators who are part of this entire issue i.e. Clinton, Lieberman et al. Let's get to work on writing some letters folks. Also pass on these transcripts to any media outlets so the media can see this jackass for what he truly is.

nice series of letters datastorm. I've sent a couple of letters in the past and received the same clipped snippy one sentence replies you did.

"Go *Semper Fidelis* yourself" ?? WTF is he, 10 yrs old?

Actually if I had enough people, like say..... 1000 underpaid EA employee's in crunch mode for a few months we could build a Lego Death Star. Mind you it wouldn't be very grey....

But there are mods for The Sims 2 that do allow for teenage pregnancy, even Male pegnancy (and I ain't talking aliens either).

I hate to say it, but where is the irrate postal gamer that is going to hunt down Jack Thompson and put him out our misery?
