[CNET] Another day, another game banned in Australia - Page 5

post #41 of 62
What gets me is that at the base of it, video games are a form of expression to entertain; like a film or a play. The difference is the interaction. There is still a story told through dialog and visuals.

Edit: Grammar

I seriously think the problem is that those morons still think of computer games as "things kids play" so even with the R rating they just still think "Wont somebody please think of the children!"

Its an 18+ game, I can make my own dam mind up thank you very much!!

The sad thing is, its harder to get a banned video game about drug use than it is to actually get illegal drugs, not that I use them, but from what I know...
