Guys like Jack Thompson must be a boon for devs like Rockstar. They give free publicity and then turn out to be total nutjobs which undoes any damage (if any was done at all) they caused.
If anything, with GTA4 already getting set to be the #1 selling game of all time (and it beat out Halo 3's first week release record) it's obvious people just don't care about Jack Thompson, thus forcing his insanity to new levels.
To me it seemed like all he really cared about was publicity. I remember when he made claims that The Sims 2 showed actual full frontal nudity (I'm not sure if there was a mod that did that?) Anyway clearly nothing of the kind would actually exist in that game so just his mention of it was ludicrous.
