Gamers in the U.K. are apparently exercising their right to petition the government regarding the recent banning of Manhunt 2.
A user-created petition has surfaced on 10 Downing Street, the website of new British Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The petition was submitted by one Bradley Smith, and proclaims:
"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Restrict the powers of the BBFC with regard to the banning of videogames.
The BBFC have recently refused to rate the videogame "Manhunt 2?. As such, adults in this country will never be allowed to play this game. Adults should be allowed to make their own decisions with regard to what videogames they want to play. We all understand that this game is extremely violent and unsuitable for children. As such an 18 rating should have been applied."
