Remember kids, Jack Thompson may be the 2nd biggest douche since Ethan from Phantasy Star Universe and the entire cast of the Kingdom Hearts series, but his delusions are fed by immature comments and 13-yr old boys obsessed with these types of games.
Disbarment from practicing law apparently hasn't affected Jack Thompson's crusade against violent video games. The former lawyer has claimed victory in the wake of EA's decision to remove the Taliban from Medal of Honor. Also, he thinks those who disagree with his and his actions can "go to hell."
Early last month, PC Mag revealed that Thompson wrote a letter to U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates urging him to block Medal of Honor's release.
Aside from the issue regarding the Taliban name, Thompson's letter alleged that the game "poses a demonstrable danger to our troops by providing a training tool for those who wish to kill them." He also accused EA of allowing underage gamers to pre-order the decidedly mature title.
EA has since removed the Taliban from the game's multiplayer component. In a pair of emails to gaming news site Ripten, Thompson claimed that this was a victory resulting from his actions. He also had some pretty choice words for those who don't agree with him and his actions:
I win again, as usual. Any gamers who donít think so and who donít appreciate what I do to protect our culture can go to Hell.
and please add: Any gamers that donít know how to get to Hell on an expedited basis, let me know, and Iíll send along the cheat code to get there more quickly.
