Jack Thompson Es Un "Fucker"
"Joe from New Jersey" wrote me the second he discovered Jack's new idea to get some press for himself, and this guy may be the lawyer form of the bad-guy wrestling character. In short, his new proposal is for video game designers to make a game based on the vengeful destruction of the game industry at E3 and elsewhere in retaliation for the damage it has caused to so many people. If they will do this game for him, he will donate $10,000 to any charity the game designers see fit. If you haven't already figured it out, Grandma and I hate Jack Thompson.
The gaming world is already rightfully screaming in its defense, and numerous comics and blogs have quickly seen the obvious flaws of this idiot's proposal. We at oghc are going to take this one further by making Jack's game. We'll do the game in the classic style of the 80's, just so Jack remembers how many types of games we heathens enjoy.
I should be done in a few days, I think. It's important to see Grandma's take on this blowhard- and she is supervising the production. In the meantime, Grandma is starting up Growlanser Generations and learning its battle techniques, status controls, and menu options so that she may kick some evil ass. We have lots of new stuff lined up, so make sure you check back with us for (at least) daily updates.
We just have to do our part to contribute in the community's education of this chicken fucker, and those like him.
Grandma is not just a single anecdote of the benefits of gaming; a singular response of "well, she's been playing for about thirty years, and she hasn't blown up a post office..." She has seen much of what gaming can do, positive and negative; she has seen the maturation of gaming from asteroids and pong to Resident Evil 4 and Condemned. There is much she understands that Jack Thompson refuses to study. "Cherry-picking information is a dangerous thing, Mr. Thompson," said Grandma. "If you want an information war, fine. You brought this upon yourself."
