Queensland will support moves to allow violent bloody and sexy R18+ computer games on to the market - but only if they can be kept away from children.
Being a Australian and a older gamer I hope this gets passed
Like we always say its not that hard to keep away from the kids. I have a Son and I know how to keep them away from him. I have a Wii for him and I keep the PS3 locked away from him. JUST DONT BE A LAZY PARENT!!! Anyway my father would always forget to hide his porn and R rated movies from me and I turned out fine. I think internet porn and faces of death films are a much bigger problem then games. When your child sees a snuff film of someone getting there head blown off in Iraq that is far worse. Don't think so? go watch some.
Awesome news for Australian gamers and M/Adult rated games in general.
Wow I thought I was the only one who loved violent bloody and sexy R18+ computer games, so your saying you love violent bloody and sexy R18+ computer games? Cool!
GOOD FOR Australian !!! i hope North America follow suit.
I can drink to that! I just hope South America goes that way, they can just make it not allowed to minors to buy 18+ rated games and still let publishers sell those games here... But instead, last month here in Brazil they already censored both Counter Strike and EverQuest (both still relatively "hits" thanks to LanHouses, in witch, by the way, is already not allowed to 12- minors to play). I really hope more activity from the industry here lead to a change of mind in government.
Aussie gamers' win. Parents just needs to supervise their kids more often. And yes, porn/violent content on the 'net and your're parents porn collections are more accessible than adult games available on the market.
it says queensland.....WHAT ABOUT VICTORIA!
The sooner the better. The whole country should find an escape from these ridiculous laws soon enough.
"but only if they can be kept away from children." Isn't that the entire point of a classification system in the first place?
and the Wii loses
