    at least we get boobs in games, and while the aussie dollar's so good who cares?

    im glad rebellion arent going to tone it down for a local release, so many games are changed dramatically to get onto shelves,

    i can see a beautiful day ahead where the games industry itself blocks the sale of any games at all to Australia until its government grows up and accepts people over 18 play games too

    Chances this is going to stop me buying this game: 1%
    Chances this is going to stop anyone else: 16%
    Chances this is going to hurt our economy: 77%

    Fucking hell i hate my retarded government.
    Dickheads are still living in 1987.


    Seriously, what, they think 15 year olds can't handle it?
    We grow up on the internet. 5 minutes on 4chan and you're all but immune to both porn and gore, not to mention the fact that movies like Saw 3 are MA15+.

    Why won't they just add an 18+ rating? I doubt it's that hard...

    True. If they do it to game, they should do it to films too! At least have some consistency behind it all. In every 15 nowadays, you're guaranteed to see a pair of tits!

    I cant watch a damn movie with my parents without checking the age rating!

    It's just a game it's not real! I guess their parents didn't tell them that.

    But you see fellas, that would all be rational. And rational ideas are usually rejected by idiots. Example: Evolution.

    Only one person is against an R18+ rating. In order for an R18 rating to be issued, all attorney generals must agree.

    Michael Atkinson Doesn't.

    Yes, it is absolutely moronic.

    And writing to the Government won't help - the majority of us are all for an R18 for video games, as it kills 2 birds with 1 stone - more games for adults, less violence for midgits. It's just that 'That Faggot' (Michael, as the majority of us call him) is holding everything back. He's one of the ones that hates video games in general.

    And yes. Only narrow-minded pillocks agree with him.

    We call em 'Drop Bears', unfortunately none can be tamed.
    The last team that tried in 2004 were all killed. Slowly, for the drop bears start at the feet and travel upwards..

    Anyway, if another major game gets banned in the near future, he's likely going to be killed.
