Miami attorney, Jack Thompson is convinced that he is an unwilling star in Grand Theft Auto IV and is threatening to block the release of GTA IV if Rockstar does not take him out.
Quoting the September 2007 issue of Game Informer magazine, Thompson said that the first killing mission of the anti-hero of the game, Niko, is to kill a lawyer.
When Niko comes into this lawyer’s office and pulls a gun on him , the lawyer says, “that the firm supports the second amendment and that ‘Guns don’t kill people. Video games do.’
Thompson said that the fact that the lawyer, killed on Niko’s first mission, would bring up video games, makes it clearly a reference to him.
