Australia Meet your Jack thompson

Recommended Posts

It was recently announced that an R18+ rating for video games was in the works, though South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson has stated he will fight against this plan. Atkinson is solely responsible for maintaining Austalia's status of being the only developed democracy without an adults only rating for video games, despite overwhelming demand for such a rating.

 

I feel honored having our own Jack Thompson happy.giflol.gifhappy.giflol.gif

Protest. I've seen many crazy protests in Australia before so I'm sure you guys can do it in relation to this matter. Or is the people who really care about this too lazy, sitting on their couches playing downgraded violent video games? tounge.gif

We shall rise from the underworld and slaughter Michael Atkinson..

Wouldn't that make his actions justified then?

 

I'm not going to kill someone because I can't get Niko a well-deserved blowjob.

I was thinking the same thing.

 

The best thing for people like Atkinson and Thompson, would be for relatively small comets to fall from the sky and hit them in the head; killing them instantly.

I don't know how much footprint this forum has in the world, but it's probably best to leave personal threats out of it. For everyone's benefit.

Wow, you actually made a constructive post, other than your university, what dvd cover will it come in, and kmart threads.

 

 

Anyway, all we need is him to sign it, and we can get R18+ games.

What has he got to do with Australia at all? Shouldn't he just shut up and mind his own business? Even his family don't love him.

 

I wish he'd hurry up and kick the bucket.

ps3 user all the way

Hello Mr. Atkinson.

 

I am a representative of the largest English speaking Grand Theft Auto network and community in the world - one of the games being affected by the absence of an R18+ rating system in this country. I am also a resident in your electorate. Naturally I am very disappointed to hear that it is you who is preventing an adults only rating system for video games under the guise of preventing children from harmful material.

 

This might swing well with older and more naive constituents, but I can assure you that if kids want a fix of violence, nudity or profanity, they simply need to turn on their televisions. This crusade you are waging was lost decades ago.

 

I can only see this as an attempt at notoriety, similar to that of Jack Thompson. His fate is that he has been subject to being the face of contempt and ignorance and therefore the recipient of many ill thoughts in the minds of the gaming community (which is much more vast than you seem to imagine) You are already beginning the transition into "Aussie Jack" in the bustling GTAForums, where there are thousands of Australian members.

 

I am writing this with the intention of compelling you to stop your opposition to the change. It is meek, needlessly conservative and frustratingly indicative of South Australian government. Having an R18+ rating for videogames will do nothing to harm young minds. But putting your name towards the cause of preventing it will do nothing but drag your name through the mud of teenagers (the stereotypical gamers) and middle aged gamers (those that make up the vast percentage of gamers in this day and age)

 

You're at the coalface sir. I compel you.

Also write that all its doing is forcing us to import games from other countries, so the laws are pointless
