Video Game Cases
Jack Thompson is especially concerned with interactive media such
as video games. Recent targets include The Sims 2 (t-rated), Grand
Theft Auto San Andreas (m-rating), killer 7 (m-rating), and Bully
As with any new form of emerging media, the public will have lots
of exaggerated fears as well as justified concerns. The fact that
many of the studies which examine the effects of video games on
adults and children come to contradicting conclusions can only further
confuse the subject.
Jack Thompson's efforts are based around the belief that exposure
to video games - especially violent and sexual ones - is highly
hazardous to the youth of the world.
Video games are literally "murder simulators"
teaching our kids how to kill.
