    Thanks good job;

    Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle


    Now I don’t have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

    Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

    Wait… I think that sounds like a good idea.

    But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God’s Sake… least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

    I’m all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there’s one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what’s stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

    But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you’ll find they don’t think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they’ll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless… yeah.

    The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can’t figure out the controls for Halo so it’s frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it’s in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child’s life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can’t be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It’s too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

    Ummmmmmm how do you get the pic out of the PDF file?


    Heres a hint a PDF file dose not let you save or export without the 100$+ editor….. might want to dail it back some and use a JPG for the tee and a PDF/text form for the form you need to file….

    I is fuzzy brained mew =^^=
    (in need of a bad overhaul)

  5. Andrew Eisen says:

    I like where you’re going with that but seeing as CSI is a television show (fake violence), I think you’d be better off substituting it with something real (like the nightly news) as it better ties into the first line.  For example:

    Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.

    Heck, I can’t even get through the nightly news without covering my eyes.

  6. Kincyr says:

    here’s my variation on the last one:

    Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.
    Heck, the violence on CSI makes me cringe.

    岩「…Ace beats Jack」

  7. Andrew Eisen says:

    Here are a few shirt slogans I thought up, some better than others.  Use them if you like.  Change the wording, add art…whatever you feel makes a good shirt.




    If killers were born of violent video game play,


    You’d be dead before you finished reading this…




    If violent video games harm children,


    How come no one’s writing laws that make facilitating such play a form of child abuse?




    Age recommendation on the front, content descriptors on the back.


    What?  Too much for you to remember?




    Don’t want your children playing M-rated games?  Don’t let them!


    …or do you really need the gov’t to do your job for you?




    It’s okay to suck at video games,


    It’s not okay to suck at parenting.





    To determine the appropriateness of a video game for your child, use:

    ESRB ratings

    Parental controls

    The Internet

    You’re damn head




    -Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo-


    If you’re serious about providing entertainment to gamers of ALL ages,


    Why won’t you allow AO games on your consoles?





    I’ll decide which games are appropriate for my kids.





    Warning!  Player of Violent Video Games


    Studies show I may blast you with a loud noise.






    Video game violence has not desensitized me to REAL violence.


    Kill someone in front of me and I’ll run screaming.

  8. Mike says:

    Is it just me, but given the GameStop vid that was referenced here a few days ago, should the prize really be a gift certificate to GameStop?  Maybe your choice of Sony, MS, Nintendo or Steam credits instead?

  9. GRIZZAM PRIME says:

    Hmmm…how about a charicature style image of Jack Thompson over a deep fryer with a generic fast food uniform on, and a caption that reads: F**$ing ECA…/ or: F**$ing video games…



    -Remember kids, personal responsibility is for losers! For information on games and psychology, look up: Jonathan Freedman(2002)Block & Crain(2007) Just to name a few…

  10. sortableturnip says:

    How do you post the pic?  Can’t seem to figure it out…

    Also, am I the only one who thinks the ECA’s logo looks like a penis?

  11. Fedule mk II says:

    Well, I’d like to enter (despite having no ECA where I live), but they’ve decided to make this a USA/Canada only affair, so oh well. You’d think, with the advent of the internet, that everyone would be running worldwide competitions by now, but hey.

  12. Geoff ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    JT wouldn’t worship Khorne.  He’s totally a Tzeentch worshipper.  Think about it, he’s totally insane and believes in a false "truth" given to him by the Great Manipulator. 🙂

    If we’re going with a 40k theme, how about using one of those pictures of five Space Marines holding out aganist a hoard of ‘Nids/Orks/Chaos/whomever.  The Space Marines could have the ECA as their insignia and the baddies could be based on either censorship-fanatics or EA (who would totally have to be based on ‘Nids then, with a Carnifex representing SecuROM.)

    …Ok, I’m done gushing about 40k now. 

  13. TheGreg says:

     Ok, it has nothing to do with the ECA, but it’d be cool to have a picture of Jack with a word bubble yelling 




    ……aaaand that makes sense only to 40k players 😛 but still makes me laugh.

  14. TJLK says:

    It might be wise to use

    Might get more submissions and it is also just a easy way for people to see what has been submitted.

    The Campaign For Liberty used it to get art for the Rally for the Republic and I think it was pretty successful.  It’s over but it’ll give you a good idea on how it works.

    It would also allow everyone to view the possible submissions, see which ones were eliminated, see which ones that are out of hand and give guidance in that regard.  I dunno, worth thinking about I think.  Might help making a larger turnout and even receiving a higher quality result.

  15. chadachada(123) says:

    Wait, nevermind, just checked their site, they have it for sale.

    It wasn’t on sale for a long time though..

  16. chadachada(123) says:

    I was never able to buy the previous year’s winning shirt….I want that shirt, "Contrary to Popular Opinion, these do not make me a killer"

  17. GryphonOsiris says:

    "The ECA: Proving Jack Thompson is a idiot for 10 years running."

    Jokes aside, sounds like a lot of fun.

  18. Zevorick says:

    I was going to say something about advertising and relevance, but eh, if ECA can’t advertise here from time to time then there’s a problem considering who’s paying for what and what not.

    Good luck?
