"I accept that 98 percent, 99 percent of gamers will tell the difference between fantasy and reality, but the 1 to 2 percent could go on to be motivated by these games to commit horrible acts of violence," Atkinson said.

Congrats crainger. Because 2% of your population might be retarded they seem fit to control what everyone plays.

Shut the **** up before I kill you |MagNuS|.

What about the 1-2% watching violent movies and TV shows. I'm pretty horrified that Bones and Dexter is shown on TV, but games are banned. **** Atkinson, he has dug himself a huge hole and he is scrambling to get out before his re-election.

Some people crash cars, we should stop using them.

Actually all progress has hiccups and accidents, so we should just live in huts.

Nothing wrong, but it does have graphic images. Sure it's all after the fact, but you can't tell me it's worse than any games.

Religion is slowly being banned in Australia, so I guess Atkinson being a religious nutter will eventually be banned himself.

hmmm, lets say 50% of the population play games of some form so are "gamers". That's 10 million people.

2% of that is 200,000 people. By his rationale an R rating for computer games would produce 200,000 violent murderers.

I agree with Dexter. I've watched 3 seasons on DVD one month and I still cannot believe what I watched. I'm a sane individual, but good grief, a nut might copy that show! I got into the storyline so much, but I kept feeling like I shouldn't watch it. I hate sympathizing with a character like that..
sorry for the offtopic...

Im sick to death of pricks like Atkinson telling me what is good for me.

That's how these politicos think on both sides of the aisle, they know better than you do how to live your life.

the other day i read through the bible and had an irresistible urge to set fire to 2 cities, force a father to kill his son and torture and nail a man to a cross for being a nice generous guy.

better ban it.

Looks like they are opening the debate on an R rating again, hopefully it's so overwhelming Atkinson can see how he is holding back our rights as a free nation and permits bring game rating to match the film ratings. I mean the same OFLC rates both, why not have the same ratings?

Fingers crossed.

We should ban the bible because it tells us it's ok people we think are witches too.

Better ban people as a whole, because some like to incite others to commit violent acts.
