Re: Killer 7


Dear Ms. Vance:


I have just learned facts that indicate the above violent game most likely deserves an “AO” rating rather than the “M” rating which your ESRB has given it.


As you may or may not know, more than forty states have “sexual material harmful to minors” statutes which prohibit the sale of sexually explicit material to anyone under 18 years of age. This hiatus between the “M” (age 17) rating and the statutory criminal standard (age 18) has always posed significant peril to the industry through games that contain sexual material, and it appears that those pigeons may come home to roost in Killer 7. “Hot Coffee” is a fairly recent example of the peril. As to Killer 7, please note:


The following is found in a review of Killer 7 by Matt Casamassina at http://cube.ign.com/articles/630/630908p1.html which contains the following observations at this pro-violent game Internet site:


“…profanity, sex and bloodshed are commonplace… We can't stress it enough: kids should not play Killer 7. Not just because there's an M on the box, but because for once that M really means something. There's much more than blood and guts in the game. Everything from the design of puzzles to the subject matter is designed for older players and it's really that simple…. And there are cinematics that feature full-blown sex sequences…. Killer 7's adult themes, which encapsulate extremely violent, profane and sexual situations, as well as a wide range of issues from terrorism to the sale of children, make the M on the box really mean something.”


Ms. Vance, this game was released on July 7, 2005. It may be that the stir caused by the “Hot Coffee” in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas distracted all of our attention from Killer 7.


There is no question in my mind that a video game containing “full-blown sex sequences” cannot be rated anything other than “AO” rather than “M.” The reviewer above in fact says that this game’s “M” actually means something, and he says it twice for emphasis.


There are those who would say that people such as I are “prudes” who have no problem with violence but get uptight about sexual content in games. That is a disingenuous charge, and you know why. I have been on national television programs, as early as the week before Columbine, complaining about 13-year-olds being enabled by the ESRB to violent “M” games. But it is your sister organization, the Entertainment Software Association, that is in court right this second in Illinois trying to prevent the extension of the “sex” argument to the “violence” argument. It is your industry, then, that thinks violence is okay for kids but that sex, given state laws already on the books, is not okay. Well, the Killer 7 game underscores the fact that your organization and the industry it fronts for appear to try to get away with anything that is harmful to kids, whether already illegal or not.


What it also means is that if jurors in a criminal prosecution were asked whether Killer 7 contains “sexual material harmful to minors” in violation of statutory standards, then, based upon the above enthusiastic review at IGN.com, the answer to that question would probably be “yes.”


That answer would put the Entertainment Software Rating Board, in my opinion, in the middle of a criminal conspiracy to distribute sexual material harmful to minors in violation of criminal statutes. This is not a situation in which the ESRB has been blind-sided by hidden or embedded content, Ms. Vance. You all have known that the “full-blown sex sequences” are patently present in the game, yet you chose to put an “M” rather than an “AO” rating on it. Big mistake.


If I were you, Ms. Vance, I would immediately ask the makers of this game, and all retailers, to pull it from store shelves. If you don’t, expect for others to use this latest scandal, which I am hereby officially kicking off, to call for a dismantling of the ESRB.


The fox has guarded the chickens long enough. Killer 7 seems to prove it.

Hello, my name is parody it’s a pleasure to meet you! I’m a literary or artistic device used in a jovial fashion for the purpose of comedic effect. Though my subject may be real my, I however do not have to be. For I exist as a mockery of that subject. Best wishes!
-Parody.

Now that you’ve met my good friend lets discus just what it is you’re trying to say.

“This sex isn't hidden, Scott. Wouldn't want the facts to get in the way or your drawing, now would you?”

When you can play the entire game, while using a strategy guide mind you, and not encounter this ‘hot coffee’ mini-game once. Yes I’d have to say that it is quite hidden. The content is there but not accessible. It’s like pirates gold, unless you have the map you’d never have known it was there.

I took this information and applied it to fictitious events through the comic. Even with the dreaded pixilated breasts. I can claim whatever I want in this because guess what, it’s not real! Once again it’s my good friend, parody.

There’s also my original assertion in which your rewording was derived. Where I state, you are in this for your personal goals and really couldn’t care less. Have you not launched class action lawsuits on behalf of families who are victims of violence? Do you not stand to receive your cut if any of these win?

Your crusade is nothing more than an attempt to sway the public to your side. You have your own greedy goals at heart. Stepping on the backs of these families is nothing short of despicable.

At the end of the day I can sleep at night knowing I’ve made someone laugh at your own egotism.

-See you space cowboy.

uh,no. i don't have time for twits, especially in light of the below. knock it off:

RUMOR #2: The FBI is investigating death threats e-mailed to Florida attorney and feisty game industry critic Jack Thompson. Source: E-mails threatening great bodily harm forwarded to this and
other publications by the attorney himself, as well as a Thompson-penned plea
to Senators Hillary Clinton and Joseph Lieberman (sent to their offices
and media outlets, including GameSpot) wherein Thompson asks for "help your
respective offices could give me in persuading the FBI to act in response to
these threats."

The official story: "People are threatening to kill me." And: "The FBI is all over these." --Jack Thompson. "No comment." --FBI spokesperson, North Miami Beach Division.

What we heard: Among the dozens (and dozens) of unsolicited e-mails this Web site has received from attorney Jack Thompson over the past weeks, a handful were singular in nature: they included e-mails purportedly sent to Thompson which contained threats on his life. By anyone's standard, the e-mails sounded dastardly, indeed. One read: "For being a total f***ing ***hole. I think video games or [sic] freaking awesome, and they are my entire life, and for you to insult them, is like telling me my life is totally worthless. For this, sir, I AM GOING TO F***ING KILL YOU!!!" [Expletives masked by asterisks.--ed.] Another forwarded to GameSpot from Thompson read:
"this is not spam, its [sic] my right as a citizen to send you thousands upon thousands of emails saying the same thing until you die painfully from gun shot wounds." And a third: "Everyone thinks you are insane, hence the name 'Wacko Jacko', which makes you the equivalent of a molester. Therefore you are gay. I hate you, and the world would be a better place if you were brutally urdered." We gasped along with Thompson. When we alerted Thompson that we intended to seek out additional details and verification of his claims from the FBI itself--as to the status of such an investigation and progress being made (the FBI employs trained media specialists for such
purposes), Thompson replied with some urgency: "Are you, crazy? ... People are threatening to kill me. Either report what I have said, having been provided the emails, or stop bothering me."

Bogus or not bogus?: With members of the Bar (aka lawyers) compelled to tell-the-truth-the-whole-truth-and-nothing-but-the-truth, and an FBI agent who doesn't overtly deny that an investigation is underway, likely not bogus.

[Just a note, yes he did copy and paste that respose... He pasted it twice.]

I found the entire editorial funny aswell:

I'm sure most of you are familiar with Jack Thompson. You know, that powertripping lawyer from Miami who thinks video games are the devil, and solely responsible for human stupidity? The guy that blames video game developers when their customers create mods/hacks that add sexual/violent content to a video game. Because obviously it's the developer's fault that people are modifying their game.

Some of you may recall an interview I did with CBS News on the subject of video game violence, that Mr. Thompson also participated in.

For years I've watched this moron use the tragedies of suffering families as stepping stones in his pursuit of money and fame. A fourteen year old kid sleepwalks, and stabs his grandmother to death with a butcher knife. Absolutely horrible. According to Jack Thompson it has nothing to do with noctambulism, and everything to do with the fact that the child played Diablo earlier that day. Why blame the child, or heaven forbid, the parent, when you could just point the finger at a video game?

I knew he was a loon, but I didn't understand the full extent of his senility until he decided to mess with a friend of mine. I'll bet you already read VGCats (and if you don't, you should be ashamed of yourself), so you've probably already read about Scott's "encounter" with Mr. Rationality. If you haven't, I suggest going to make yourself aware.

I'm sick and tired of people like Jack Thompson always looking for a scapegoat. It's always something. For a while it was comic books that were ruining society's youth. Then it was Rock and Roll. Now it just happens to be video games.

There are always going to be parents out there that will not own up to their responsibility in raising a child. And obviously there will always be people like Jack Thompson who facilitates this type of behavior.

A kid plays a video game, then goes and shoots his brother. Guess what; I think that kid was probably fucked up in the head to begin with, before that game ever got into his hands. Either due to chemical imbalances of some sort, or because his parents couldn't be bothered enough to properly explain the concept of right and wrong to their child.

And so suddenly their child is a murderer, and they are faced with the decision of being branded as a poor parent, or shifting the blame onto whatever vice seems most conveniant at the moment. In these cases, video games. What option do you think these fucking cowards are going to choose?

I agree one-hundred and ten percent that video games should have age ratings. I completely agree that a twelve-year old should not be playing Grand Theft Auto. What's that you say? We already have an age restriction system on video games? Well blow me down.

The bottom line is, all we have the responsibility to do is label the games for content and set an age limit. If a game is labeled M for mature, that's the end of it. If a retail outlet sells it to a minor anyway, go after the store or employee!

If a store is doing their job, then a minor will not be able to walk in and purchase one of these games. So how do they get their hands on it? Well shiver me timbers, the parents buy it for them!

And the most genius part is, that the parents then turn around and yell at the video game developers, which essentially boils down to "I'm too fucking busy and lazy to be bothered with what my kid is doing, and you made this violent video game which my stupid ass bought and it's all your fault because you should have estimated my sheer, overwhelming retardism and take steps to prevent it!"

Face it Jack. You've got nothing. I've been gaming since my Commodore 64, and I've never killed anyone. I've never run through traffic like Frogger, and I've never tried to jump on anyone's skull like Mario.

I could go out right now, pick any murder in the world and link it to something stupid just the way you keep doing. Man kills his wife while she sleeps. Turns out he ate cheerios for breakfast that morning. BAN CHEERIOS OMGWTFBBQ!.

Face it Jack. You've got nothing. I've been gaming since my Commodore 64, and I've never killed anyone. I've never run through traffic like Frogger, and I've never tried to jump on anyone's skull like Mario.

I could go out right now, pick any murder in the world and link it to something stupid just the way you keep doing. Man kills his wife while she sleeps. Turns out he ate cheerios for breakfast that morning. BAN CHEERIOS OMGWTFBBQ!.
Yeah, that was great too.

Ah yessss.

If I could rep you Dave I would of done it by now. I think the media should stop bitching and realize that Jack Thompson is making them look like idiots patronizing any idiotic argument he states.

Jack Thompson has to be one of the biggest douchebags I have ever heard of,what an idiot.I hate when people complain about video games causing violence and causing kids to kill people when it's the parents fault for buying the damn thing in the first place.

My Mother let me play me some games like that when I was younger and I would watch my Father play those types of games on his computer,I never went around shooting other people.Just like when I'm playing San Andreas,sometimes I like to go in a police station and start a shoot out with the cops because it's fun,knowing that I would never even think about it doing it for real.


Sorry for all that but I just like getting that out,and Corey I'm going to rep you for your excellent banner(The second one).

^Like I said... it's truly not worth dissing him... there are no words for the hatred that I have for Jack Thompson.
