    The shooter hadn't really been playing games while he was in college. When he was younger, he didn't play much other than Sonic games.

    Yeah, everyone basically knew this already, but now Jack Thompson is going to sue Sega since he played it when he was younger.

    I just have to post this old article and point out a few extremely ridiculous quotes. Some people may have already seen them.
    There's some comedic value here...

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18220228/

    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>When Jack Thompson gets worked up, he refers to gamers as "knuckleheads." He calls video games "mental masturbation."</div>

    <div class='quotetop'></div><div class='quotemain'>"This is not rocket science. When a kid who has never killed anyone in his life goes on a rampage and looks like the Terminator, he&#039;s a video gamer," he told MSNBC.com.</div>

    I think it goes a bit deeper than video games to make you do that. You had to have had a problem beforehand.

    And as bad as that last sonic game was, it wouldn&#039;t make anyone kill anybody.
