wth man that... wth.

anyways, yes australia not having an r18+ rating for games only comes down to the fact that we need a unanimous vote, and it's like 12 to 1. there is one person on the board who opposes it, and I think it's the mmember for croydon.

Okay maybe just the politicians like to say that we are. I'm pretty sure ol' Kevin '07 used to call us the "Clever Country". I always scoffed at that when hearing it on the news.

Any person mature enough to play this game knows it's just fantasy violence, if not they shouldn't be playing it. We all know the arguement, it's just a shame that the people moderating the ratings don't appear to.

Sounds like a Jerry Falwell style paradise for lamers.

How could they cook up a rating system where they don't have adult rated anything? Like, do they ban pron in Australia - because that is +18 everywhere else.

Of course, with that kind of censorship, Canadian movies would pretty much all be banned, but they can watch Mad Max, because there is no violence in that at all...

+1 for reading the thread. It's been mentioned 100+ times that video games are the only media that doesn't have 18+ rating.

Just do a fatality on those who want to ban it.
