...That is the single most irresponsible thing I have ever read... ...expletive... ... some more expletive...
We'll be the death of our own pastime letting articles like that get printed.
OMG! the gaming industry will be closed!
In light of your wisdom I would like to propose a rhyme:
Remember Remember the first of October
Duncan, Riddick and Thought,
I know of no reason why free thinking treason
Should ever be forgot.
D. Harris, D. Harris 't was his intent
To make Jack Thompson content.
Freedom of speech and freedom of art,
Poor old Gamer angst.
By jstar and mfnick providence he was catch'd
With foul language and no brains to match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the Internet scream.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the Queen!
Hip hip hoorah!
Are you out of your mind?
First of all, how about using proper language or respect to your fellow man? it will help your idea's sound less 10 y/o.
The gaming industry will not be closed because of a phrase.
Jack Thompson is not really a threat - he's more like the court's own jester now.
The rest of the anti gaming people are now busy with 'proving' that Darwin was wrong and that we're all the result of intelligent design - which, if they win, includes violent games. so we're good.
Even if it does cause a stir, what's the alternative? Politically correct articles only? Laundered thought? Underground publications?
God forbid we'll annoy someone by thinking aloud.
Besides, any publicity is good publicity.
Riddick was/is an excellent game. Too bad it didn't receive the attention it deserved.
First it is a movie based game that rocked. nuff' said. A lot of attention went into the details - this was not a cash-in game.
The story was interesting to follow and the execution (no pun) was great.
Finally, as the article mentions, existing in the game world physically, by speech and by thought made this game an experience most games can't touch.
