In a very odd turn, We Happy Few was yesterday refused classification in Australia.
The game looks rubbish anyway, so I'm not concerned at all.
Doesn't matter about the game, it is the principal. The censors in Australia are so out of touch with reality it is embarrassing.
Holy sneezes man, that’s not the point.
Well this is good news to me! I like games that delve into mature themes. Sorry Australia! This game looks good and I'm personally excited.
Yep guess I will have to import or download from the US ps store. Oh well.
aka the game didn't sit well with someone's moral agenda so millions of people can't play it
Yep. I don't want to point fingers but it is usually a particular group of ignorant people with with certain beliefs and agendas that do this sort of thing. Not quite sure what they get out of it but I'm quite sure they can't be reasoned with as they are in the habit of ignoring rational debate and critical thinking.
That's so true and it makes me so F***ing angry. I'm a 35 year old Australian and because of a few people, my favourite hobby of gaming can get censored and certain games restricted. I'm at least thankful that DETROIT got through unscathed.
what's happening to this game? is it released yet?
The title of the game is awful. We happy few? Dumb.
Look up what the game is about before commenting. The title suits it.
Australia finally gets R18+ rating. Games get restricted anyway because they think we are all children. literally NOTHING has changed with the new rating...
This game looked like another GaaS let down so Im not to bummed about this particular game but I'm more worried about what this would mean for future games with similar graphic details.
It sucks that some governments treat citizens like children, deciding what you can expose yourself too. It's not just the citizens either... Content creators suffer from this stupidity as well. All countries need free speech. Does anyone think Agony will be refused as well?
God dammit Australia, this is why no one takes us seriously, welp, time to import it.
Weird I live in aus and played it months ago on xbox insiders I didn't get far to be honest I don't even remember if it was the full game or not I probably only got 2 hours in. Still why is it now a problem.
I'd like to visit Australia but living there as a gamer sounds like it's a pain in the ass.
Sorry Australian Polies, but last time I checked, and correct me if I'm wrong, but this country wasn't... COMMUNIST CHINA! F* you, you don't get to dictate what I can and can't play. I might just import this just to give you a big middle finger.
