strredwolf: (WHAAAAAA...?)
As you know, Jack Thompson's been on a crusade against games... but Gawker Media's Kotaku was able to keep tabs on him and ask about the game "Mass Effect" via email.  I quote:
(Kotaku's) Brian: I'm surprised you haven't been looking into Mass Effect.
Jack: Why would you be surprised. I don't see any problem with it. The guy who shot his mouth off about it had no idea what the Hell he was talking about.
Brian: You mean you're OK with mass effect?
Jack: Of course. This contrived controversy is absolutely ridiculous.
Condensed from http://kotaku.com/349423/jack-thompson-defends-mass-effect

This is a bit shocking.  It shows that Jack's taking context into consideration.  Remember, he's against Grand Theft Auto, which is a general bad side of town stealin', pimpin', rapin', pushin' simulator... which should only be sold to those over the age of 35 (in my opinion).  Mass Effect is sci-fi/adventure, with limits on what your character can do -- or an actual game you know is a work of fiction.

You know, I can see Jack's reasoning now; I just don't approve of his methods.  I think the ESRB could use some reform -- like playing the damn games.
