Jack Thompson says that he was the reason that EA removed the Taliban in Medal of Honor, and if you don't believe that you can "go to hell."
Back when the world first heard that some players in Medal of Honor multiplayer modes would be referred to as Taliban, Jack Thompson wrote a letter to Robert Gates, the U.S. Secretary of Defense beseeching him to do something. Thompson's plea was largely ignored, possibly because everyone has grown tired of hearing from the disgracefully disbarred Florida attorney. But when a games journalist decided to test the waters to see if the former lawyer had any comment on EA pulling back on mentioning Taliban in MOH, Thompson was happy to claim credit for EA's flipflop.
"I win again, as usual," Thompson wrote. "Any gamers who don't think so and who don't appreciate what I do to protect our culture can go to Hell."
Wow. I'm not sure if that was necessary. I mean, Thompson didn't even give us a chance to respond before he just blatantly said we were all jerks for not appreciating him.
But that's not all, he followed up with explicit instructions on how to get to lower depths.
"Any gamers that don't know how to get to Hell on an expedited basis, let me know, and I'll send along the cheat code to get there more quickly."
Oh, Jack Thompson. You slay me. And send me to hell, all in fell swoop. My hat's off to you.
