Umm... why does it list them as assholes? 21:21, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Conker's Bad Fur Day

I don't see how conker's bad fur day is a controversial game. There is a quote from the developer in a press release referring to it as such, but no evidence that it was actually received as such or viewed as such given in the article--Crossmr (talk) 00:25, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

What about Thrill Kill? I have a copy from Korea, that game was "killed" altogether and you have to press a two button combo to even play, LOL... ahh I think I'm going to go play right now. Best crappy game ever! (talk) 13:40, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Mario Party

The first game of the Mario Party series became controversial because, it caused blisters (usually in the palm) due to that 5 excessive control stick games. Do not add the series, only the first game.

For some reason, this list feels like it was written by Jack Thompson himself. I've removed it until there are proven links that these criminals were motivated by video games. Just because Jack Thompson said they were doesn't make it fact, and by listing them in a video game article only validates his ill-informed opinions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:50, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Julia Boseman

Julia Boseman is listed as a major figure in the controversy. She's got the template on her page and it's listed among her categories. But there's NOTHING in her article connecting her to this. Would someone who knows something about it please add at least one sourced sentence to her article connecting the dots? Thanks. David in DC (talk) 15:21, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Tim Johnson

Same situation as Julia Boseman David in DC (talk) 15:27, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Rick Santorum

Same request as Boseman and Johnson. David in DC (talk) 15:46, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Boseman, Johnson and Santorum

OK, the request above as to these three has not been dealt with in two years. Nothing on any one of these three people's articles makes any reference to video games. I'm removing them. Please only re-add after some information is added to the article(s) explaining why the template is there. Cheers, David in DC (talk) 16:12, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Schwarzenegger v. Entertainment Merchants Association

Added the above lawsuit because it reached the Supreme Court of the United States.-- (talk) 17:28, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
