I haven't really paid much attention to Jack Thompson until recently. Up till now I dismissed him as one of those Ann Coulter crazy pundit types that I always see on YouTube clips of American television. After watching a few of his latest TV appearances it all seemed like the same stuff. He blames real life violence on video games by repeatedly referring to a few studies and bending the conclusions to fit his agenda. Most of what else he says is baseless and goes a long way to demonstrate his ignorance to people that actually have experience with video games.

Though it may sometimes seem like it is the case, I can't imagine that Thompson's end goal is to take away our video games for the purposes of upsetting us. I'm also thinking it's not just about his career or financial gain. It seems to me that he is at least partially motivated by matters of conscience and that his end goal involves public safety, which I have to admit is somewhat noble. Of course, this doesn't make up for the fact that he is going about promoting his cause in the wrong way. It would be easier for him to give up blaming the video game scapegoat if he would spend more time on planet Earth.

I was inspired to compose a song featuring Mr. Thompson himself:

Pure Pwnage - Reality vs Fantasy feat Jack Thompson.mp3
MP3 (192kbps 4.45MB - 3m:15s)

Here is a video for the song. Enjoy!

Awesome.

Like, seriously, the song and video were actually really, really good...

When, and i do say when, this video gets on to YouTube, i'm pretty certain it'll get a ton of views, quickly.


So, get it up on the Tube and let's promote Pwnage.

Jack Thompson, a moron indeed. Trying to gain fame by being the protagonist in the fight against video games. Those who are sane can easily tell that he is talking from his giant ass. While others I.E. Hilary Clinton, see him as a saint and fighter for our future!


Give me a fucking break, GG NO RE Jack Thompson, douche bag extrodinare.

That was awesome. icon_biggrin.gif

But what game was it when the zoomed in sniper aim multiplied? It seems familiar, yet distant.

I doubt he could sue. His image is on the public domain and thus can be used by whoever wants to. Besides, can you imagine someone trying to sure Pure Pwnage? Come on, we have an army. icon_wink.gif

Lol.

Awesome video.

I say he can keep ranting with his twisted facts and manipulated studies. It's only going to cause games to become racier and more mature so they can gain publicity. Which isn't always the best thing, but at least I believe that his bullshit can't change anything.


Would you like to look at some of my wares?
