Are violent movies/books/comics banned in Australia too?
Australian govt must think video games are for kids alone..
If the rating for any game is deemed to be R +18, then it will be banned because we do not have a R+18 rating for games.
We do have a R+18 rating for every other media except games.
Under the law, if something falls outside the ratings system, then it is banned.
Its a technical failing in the legislation... that is all.
The system need to be overhauled... badly.
Its not a nanny state, welfare state or bigbrother thing... its a poorly written law that needs fixing.
Hands ups everyone that has a perfect legislative system in their country?
No-one? Well, there ya go.Edited by Sethy666 - 3/3/11 at 2:44pm
