Haven't played Leisure Suite Larry since the first game (I seem to remember it being a very lame game but worth a laugh or two). Going by the reviews this version is much more tame than many Japanese Bishojo games. Anyone wanting real game porn can probably easily order translated pornographic Japanese Bishojo games over the internet. Typical reactionary censorship going for the big obvious pink elephant whilst the real stuff goes by unnoticed.

I can understand them trying to protect 15+ year olds but again going by the reviews I'd say there was very little for them to be protected from. I might have to play this game to find out what the fuss is about.

The censors just don't undertand the gaming industry or they still believ that parents aren't doing a suitable job of policing these games so the censor needs to do the job.

Let's face it, we are starting to become very policed downunder. Wooops, i'm getting political. Sorry.

Do they? When I was growing up...in my teens, the only porn we could ever get was R rated (soft porn)

But yes, it is getting rather stupid now, thankfully I no longer live there, as an adult I like to be able to make my own choices of which games/movies I play and watch!

Well im Australian and i really couldnt give a **** if they ban these games as the look pretty lame anyways. Still, banning a game because it shows a bit of tit seems very odd. I bought an aussie pc magazine several months ago that had the 'singles - spice up your life' demo on it. As far as i know this game openly shows muff and what have you, plus your sim can engage in the act of My point here is that a child could have bought this magazine which contained a pornographic game, yet they will ban an adult from buying a game that shows a bit of tit in a comical kind of way. (I never got to play 'singles' demo as my disc contained indonesian karaoke but thats another story)
