I’m sure Australian gamers are celebrating in the streets right now. Today brought great news of South Australian Attorney-General John Rau making an effort to get an 18 rating in place. For too long Australia was stuck either missing out on releases or suffering massive cuts to the content. This marks the beginning of the end for a terrible, out of touch and archaic system that should have been overhauled years ago.
There’s only one issue, and it’s a big one, the change comes at the cost of removing the current 15 rating entirely.
Any good the 18 rating does is almost cancelled out, it might not seem like it right away, but you’d probably understand better if you read this.
