Lawyer Jack Thompson is in the news again for yet another failed attempt to get a video game banned. The current target of Thompson’s juvenile wrath is “Bully”, the new freeform game from the makers of Grand Theft Auto.
Naturally the Florida judge before whom the case was brought has rejected the call to ban the game, deciding after viewing the game in action that it was not a nuisance to society, and certainly far from the ‘columbine simulator’ that Thompson claims it is. After all, there are no guns, and no one dies.
The game has an age restriction of ‘Teen’, far lower than the average game that earns Thompson’s attentions. Personally I think he just has it in for Rockstar Games. They could make My Little Pony Tales and he would find something to take them to court over.
