Default Anti-violent game lawyer blabs to chairmanís mum

http://www.theinquirer.net/gb/inquir...nt-game-lawyer


I suspect it may be a hoax but it is absolutely hilarious. :lmao:

For those who wish not to read the brief article, here's a quote:

"Thompson has written to the mother of Take-Two chairman Strauss Zelnick to report her son for making 'murder simulator software'."

that's nonsense - i'd sue thompson for harrassement - or at least give him a taste of his own medicine.

shooting some pixels in a video game is not the same as shooting a human being. it's as simple as that.
