Seems they are on a roll, trying to take down the Sims 2 as well.
With the Mod community growing stronger and more skilled, just about any PC game can be modded to do anything, just about.

Lmao, the sims 2.  This is rediculous.  I could almost understand GTA: SA getting attacked, but god damn, the sims 2!?!

See my posts in the other thread...  This guy is a money-sucking moron.  And that's bad, considering that I rarely insult people outright.  I'd be willing to bet that his 16 year old boy is out in his daddy's BMW, rolling on exctacy at some hot Miami club, having wild sex with some chick he doesn't even know.  Not to mention the fact that this lawyer probably also wonders where all the liquor goes in his liquor cabinet.

In the past, he's represented defendants who have been the victims of GTA-inspired crimes, including the triple homicide of three police officers by an 18-year-old boy in Alabama.

Let me see the evidence that GTA led to this plz.

We call all congradulate Thompson for making our preowned copies of GTA:SA worth a little bit more morally and physically($$)

Not to mention that if they hadn't made a big deal about it, there would be far, far less people who discovered it.

WTF!

he goes after Sims 2, but not the Singles, that BMX game or God of War, the next thing you know he will go after that old SNES "Atari" game "custers revenge" (i think)... this guy is not even dumb... he's a joke.... he thinks that taking shots at video games will be good for his image.... G.D. moron, lets see the news when little timmy guns him down!! course they'd blame it on that game political machine, and bann it!

with the game industries luck he'll probably get to be Bush's pick for Governmet Approved Games committee!


but I may be wrong, censership could be just great!......... still doesn't effect the rights of the people to take up arms against Dumb A'

The idea is to mix one ingredient that will burn very fast with a second ingredient that will supply enough oxygen for that burning. This burns so fast, it's an explosion.

This is insane. I thought he was on an antiviolence crusade? This ******* just jumps on whatever bandwagon he can find, just because he wanted to get rid of GTA. Now he wants to ban The Sims 2...big mistake. These are all mods, and therefore, not able to be subjected to the same laws as Hot Coffee. Thompson has bitten off more than he can chew now, challenging the Sims 2 to be banned. EA and Maxis have the cash to fight this case to the death.

Very true, and I find it highly unlikely that EA would let their best selling game come under fire like this for too long.

And, if you know anything about the Sims, it's embarrassingly obvious that he has no idea what he is tallking about. I expect the Sims 2 denate to deflate quickly, or if it doesn't that EA/Maxis will easily win.

I think he doesn't go after them because they are already ratet AO. Plus, you only see the boobies, no sexual act, no genitals. That's why he doesn't matter.
Also, GTA and The Sims are targetting a larger clientbase.

But I never really understodd that rating system. I mean why the heck is a pair of breasts worse for the sake of a child than shooting someone with a pumpgun in the street?
It's just plain stupid.

In that line of stupidty fits an idea of some extremely christian women, that claims that pornography could damage your brain and should therefore be forbidden (http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/20/20573/1.html I'm sorry the article is just there in german).

heres a great one for its time......

I remember when..... last century they had this little game called Fallout 2. it had everything you could want in a violent video game..... Sex! Drugs! Head Shots!          and, Dare I Say It?       Child Murder!

Granted it was Rated M..... But what about the children? the digital children I mowed down! the little pickpockets that met my fist!
my point is that this whole thing is just a crock, Rockstar did nothing wrong and THEY! know it!
And as for AO, the difference between that and M rating Is a joke!

hope the press get wise to idiots looking for a sound byte
