Maybe he is trying to imply that since his son can purchase m-rated games easily from stores such as BestBuy, then perhaps the games shouldn't be allowed to be made or sold. But if that is in fact what he may be trying to imply, then if his son can purchase a copy of American-Pie or go see the movie Superbad, then what? What would make those alright Jacky? Why aren't you fighting that, and only targeting games?

This guy is such a tool. There are movies and things of that nature that are a lot more violent than video games (Saw anyone?) but he never mentions that. I think this jackoff is just looking for attention.

Oh! Oh! Look at me!!! My kid bought a M rated game and he's only 15!!! Now lets shut down the entire gaming industry because a Best Buy employee that probably doesn't know what a video game is just sold one to an underage kid!!!111!11!omgwtfbbq!!11!11

what if his son wouldve went in and bought Scarface or the Godfather?

Should these movies never have been made?

millions of fans of both movies would likely disagree.

both of these movies recieved dozens of awards!


and isnt that what GTA3 was...scarface and the godfather all rolled into the 80's. lol

A game that many of these assholes said shouldve never been made.

I guess the Mona Lisa never shouldve been painted either... cause she has a sexually explicit look in her eye.


fucking idiots!

I am a police officer have been for years I have three children, The problem in the world today is that parents do not raise there kids they want someone else to do it, whether its a tv a baby sitter or school, There are 10-12 year old kids in town as I write this at 11:00 pm riding there damn bikes around, The problem is parents dont raise there kids, How the hell does a 15 year old get to best buy, where does his money come from to get the game, If he has a game system the parents should understand what the game system is, how to set parental controls, just like they do fo porn channels or pay per view Its no different, Thompson, Go FYself jesus christ,. I am 32 years old I play games I dont care for cutsie titles I want to kick back drink a beer cuss, blow off a head chainsaw a monster , why because I am a GD american and thats my right, Do i let me kids (NO) do I set my mic volume so my kids can here what others say (no) And why do I not let my kids play (some) mature rated games , well hell I dont know maybe because I raise my kids and pay attention to them and dont hope someone else will,

Hell I just came from a call for a out of control kid, I get there its a damn 6 year old,. The parents want me to tell the kid I will take him to jail If he doesnt listeen to them, I tell the parents (your both idiots) Its people like you that makes children afraid of the police and how the hell does a 6 year old get to the point of them not being able to control them, I bet its because he played a mature rated game, And I bet its not from video games.

I actually have 10 xbox 360's I have purchased with confiscated drug money and plan on having weekly or monthly tournements and giving them away. And youknow what I may even give a game to the winner also. Hopefully this doesnt make the kid go out and kill someone.

Take Two is not GTA or Manhunt that would be ROCK STAR right


Rockstar is owned by Take 2.

No! can't you people see? Now that he his son has seen a huge scuba-tank wearing monster pile a large drilling implement through the body of a man who was trying to kill a small girl the only result possible is a murderous rampage, a drug problem, underage sex and terrorist funding!



(Yes, the kind you support by using pirated material! Remember, CD-R's = tools of the terrorists.)

lol. that employee could be fired. On the register when you buy any M rated game or cd or whatever, it pops up for the employee to check if the child is over the age. Funny stuff.

On the topic of commission. Someone said that if the employees were on commission they would be forced onto customer service. I completly disagree. A great example if you have a local fry's store around. Compare the customer service from a Fry's store compare to a Best Buy/Circuit City store and its completely different.

Jack Thompson is a disgrace to the legal world.

The ESRB is a seperate organisation that rates games accordingly to guide PARENTS on their purchases. Games retailers have taken this rating system as a guide also and have taken policies to prevent the sale to under-age people. It is in NO WAY the fault of the game developers, the publishers or the gamer themselves that Best Buy or any other retailer for that matter sold the game to a minor.

Jack Thompson believes that no-one has their own mind. No-one is capable of determining the difference between right and wrong. When mentally disturbed people who carry out real world violent acts play games with violent acts, you cannot say that the game drove them to do it, or even more moronically, the game 'TRAINED' them to do it. You need to have some serious physcological problems to carry out physical attacks on another human being without restraint. Thats something a video game cannot do to you.

Jack Thompson is wasting peoples time and money with this endless persuit of Take 2 and Rockstar alike, I wish Take 2 would just sue the fuck out of him and make him bankrupt. The man is a loser, he is in a position to help people, people with real needs, but instead he's going after things that just don't matter at the end of the day. Take 2 if you're reading sue him to hell on the grounds of his tirade against you being personal and not at all justified professionally.

jack is spreding more useless fud. whats new. and it had to be best buy sence everyone knoes that store has the worst employees poilcys and pay. i bet he hit other places first and they did card the kid but saying that wouldent help his fud spreding would it.

and i mean that abought best buy. they pound it in the heads of all there employees to sell anything to anyone even if its useless and unnedded. they dont do it there fired. so you think selling a game to a kid is any diffrent for bestbuy its all $$$ in the end.

long befor jack and all this bs abought game ratings the funcoland at the time now gamestop would card me for m rated games like the orignal gta serise. shops have been carding sence that time. but your still gona get the employee who doesent care hell you get it with cigrett and beer sales all the time but i dont see that in the news everytime a shop forgets to card lol.

Well any publicity is good publicity, so what do I care. Thompson has suceeded in nothing in all of these years of campaigning.

Anyway, at least his kid will get to play the Game of The Year (so far), Bioshock. Everyone should get to play that game, mature or no.

Firing that girl is too much. Suspend her for a week and make an example of her. Firing the general manager is stupid since he didn't have anything to do with the sale. Take-Two can't follow each game down the line to each customer to make sure kids can't buy it. They submitted it to the ESRB and put the label on the game. That's where their end of the responsibility stops.

I wonder how the kids at school treat his son.
