Jack Thompson Says Take-Two Chairmen Must Repent His Sins

The washed up Jack Thompson, also known as the thorn in the side of Take-Two has gone off the deep end. Originally, Thompson would do everything in his power to bring the negative press (and lawsuits) to Take-Two for Grant Theft Auto, Man Hunt and any other game he didn’t like.

Hot Coffee!Rather than allowing parents to utilize the ESRB rating, Thompson found it in his Christian heart to pursue game companies like his own personal holy war. Luckily he’s lost all his power because people finally realized he’s a lukewarm loon with a one track mind. But wait, there’s more!

“Mr. Zelnick’s problems at Take-Two are miniscule [sic] compared to the eternity of punishment that is coming his way unless he repents and accepts Christ as I did 32 years ago this month.” (1up)

When the law doesn’t work out for him, he takes it into Gods hands. He fires right over at the chairmen, “there is no blessing for Strauss Zelnick, who is not a Christian, when he gets what he deserves…”

The game industry was doing well before Jack and it will thrive without him in the way as well. One man cannot change the world, especially when that one man tends to act like a raving lunatic. Parents must guide their children down the right paths, show them life’s possibilities and understand what content is rated for what age. We’ve figured out how to handle movie ratings, we’re sure adults will figure out the ESRB rating as well.

We give too little credit to parents when it comes to making decisions for their children. If they cannot make the right decision on allowing a six year old to play Halo or Resistance, then can we actually trust them to keep a child out of R rated movies or finish their dinner before getting a snack?
