Review of Gamers Good; Jack Thompson Bad

I'm sorry but Jack Thompson is an asshole. not everything is filled with sex and killing. He thinks that gamers are stupid, But I play the sims 2 and I have also played GTA. I understand about GTA, but a game like sims 2 is nothing. I let my sister play this game. Yes there are mods out there, but if your smart enuff you can lock those mods away for your use only. I am 20 years old my sister is 13 and I do lock those mods so she can't use them. It's called screennames. I going to say this once he is a male Tiper (How ever you spell her name) Gore (Al Gore's wife). She did the same thing to music. I hate people like this, they think we as gamers are lower than them and we a group will be stupid to let our kids on the internet with out blocks.

Here's something for you to know. Most of us (mainly Bill Gates) cerated the internet. Our forefathers (some who are women) of gaming made the computers better. They wanted more, and as result you have that nice laptop, drinking your starbucks ferabicino. So heres what I have to say; Get off your high horse

Review of Gamers Good; Jack Thompson Bad

Believe it or not, this story is not exaggerated. Jack Thompson is a power-tripping lawyer who hates video games, and this piece is a good example of his method of operation. The interviews really helped clarify the story and overall the piece came across well.

Review of Gamers Good; Jack Thompson Bad

This is a story on Jack Thompson and how he decided to give $10,000 to any game maker that would make a game about how a gamer who kills a young kid. that kids father decides that the only way to make up for it is killing others. this story is pretty good though it does not have great sound editing (sound effects and music). this reporter is however very good at gavering evidence and puting it all together.overall it is a 4 out of 5.
