I think it's time that we gave Windows XP an AO rating as well. For too long, Microsoft has been cooperating gleefully with developers to turn their operating system into a porn offering.

This whole thing is ridiculous, but I guess what worries me the most about it is the potential for modding to come under attack. In an update near the end of that Gamespot article, Thompson appears to restate his argument as an attack on EA's support of the modding community. I just hope that this doesn't result in games where developers give users less freedom to modify the game out of fear of running into ridiculous attacks like this.

Well, if this game is bad, are they going to attack ancient works of art next? The Statue of David is screwed.

Jesus, I was KIDDING when I said he should go after Sims2 next. I apologize.

How much do we want to bet that he goes after Mario for the drug use next?

But seriously, this man is unhinged. I think Tycho said it best that this guy gets to come on National TV and rant and lie for fifteen seconds, and it takes a rational speaker an hour to undo his lies.

The only problem, is just what is this Thompson loser campaigning for? Rubber bumpers on children's toys?

This should be interesting (in a frightening way) because it's something of a polar opposite.

Sims 2 is rather beloved and often touted favorite child of the progaming set and usually cited as an innovative, family friendly game. GTA is bastard stepchild that most people don't even feel bad if it gets locked in the closet for a few months.

And it's a real litmus test for the mod issue and the ESRB. How much can mods effect the rating? What's funny is that I think there are more explicit mods out there than Jack T realizes, but the man is probably too prudish to google them up.

From the article:

In the statement, Thompson says, "Sims 2, the latest version of the Sims video game franchise ... contains, according to video game news sites, full frontal nudity, including nipples, penises, labia, and pubic hair."

Oh, puh-lease. He can't even play the game himself? He reads "video game news sites", which ones? The only thing I can think of is that he ended up on a Sims *skin* site where someone uploaded nakey spider textures.

Oh, hang on - look what I just found! http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/636/636088p1.html

I love how he says "Adult 'porn sites' are featuring, via free downloads, the mods that allow the consumer to customize the appearance of the labia, nipples, pubic hair, and penises." He admitted it himself! You have to go to *adult* sites to get these skins!
