Disbarred Florida attorney and anti-games activist Jack Thompson wants to halt the release of the new Medal of Honor title, which is scheduled to release on October 12. In a letter to U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, Thompson criticizes the first-person shooter, arguing that it poses a ‘demonstrable danger to our troopers’ by providing training materials to insurgents. He also criticizes U.S. soldiers who helped produced the game as well as the ESRB.
He's at it again.
Im not mad at him, hes too adorably stupid and too much of a joke to be mad at.

Agreed. And for a man who is so convinced that video games train people to be murderers how has he not been killed by a gamer yet?

I'm sure the first thing terrorists would think of is building a killer rig, buying MoH and then using it to train themselves. Once they picked up a real gun they would find out it was a complete waste of time.

I'd think the opposite.

Taliban member A trains for 6 months on MoH.
Taliban member A enters IRL combat.
Taliban member A attempts to press R to reload.

Result:
Failure.

Jack has already lost all credibility with anyone important. We can really just ignore this stuff now.

JT is on the losing side of this culture war.

Stuff like this isn't news, and the subject is just going to fire up a bunch of members into starting meaningless arguments, especially about the game series.
