i mean look at any gta game.there are thousands of pedestrians buy you cant find any kid...THINK!!!!..
for once now i feel jack Thompson is right
Freedom of expression. I don't think Valve wants to be in a position where they say "You want to use our SDK? We have to like the game you're making with it then...".

I agree I don't think kids should play it, but that's up to their parents, not Jack Thompson.

I stand by my suggestion. The game is in bad taste, but I see no reason for censorship and threats.

The real sick people, are the ones that get offended by these kind of things. IMO
Nailed it.

Stop whining over a video game... Personally I think all this celebrity worship is sickening but you don't see me writing to news corps demanding that they show ACTUAL news on a "news" broadcast (heaven forbid.) "or else"

We're talking about a ******* game. It shouldn't be illegal. Jesus, I hate the way people never stop to think what personal rights they're asking to have taken away when they make statements like you just made.

No, stuff like that shouldn't be illegal. It's insensitive, and so ******* what? Being insensitive shouldn't be a crime. And no one decides to shoot up a school because there's a game about it, that's just stupid. People like the guy in the article are just attacking whoever/whatever they can because deep down they know there really is no way to stop this **** from happening, and they're just too scared to admit it to themselves, so they go into this obsessive denial. And like most people motivated by fear, they only do harm.
In this case, he's attacking the rights of normal people.

Stuff like that should NOT be illegal. Lets say you think this kind of mod should be illegal. Which agency should be empowered to make these works illegal? Should we create a censorship branch of the US government? Perhaps it could be called the Office of Censorship?

The news is going to take this and run with it.
Soon "Valve Corporation is creating a game that encourages and trains players to shoot and kill students, and is marketed to 3 year olds" will be all over the news, just like:

"Counter-Strike trained the Virginia Tech shooter"
"Mass Effect lets young children engage in full graphical sex with aliens"
"Grand Theft Auto San Andreas includes a full graphical sex game that anyone can play at any time"
"Doom trained the Columbine shooters"
"Mortal Kombat encourages 4 year olds to rip off each others limbs"
"Night Trap lets 3 year olds rape girls in nightgowns"

etc. etc.
