If a game is banned here Steam will refuse to lets us buy it in our region. You can get someone to gift it to you though.

Seriously though. This is getting out of hand. The damn OFLC is all over the shop. God of War is allowed, but Dark Sector gets banned... The reason? High res graphics. WTF?! GTAIV is censored, yet they recently allowed a 6 year old to feature nude on a magazine cover? The reason? It's art! **** you OFLC! **** you in your stupid arses!

That's what you get when you live in a country founded by pedophiles.

Maybe that's what bothers him.

To be serious for just a moment. If there's something you don't like about the nation you live in, try to change things and make a difference. Just because your leaders are incompetent or corrupt shouldn't reflect upon you.

I believe me I'm trying. I've spoken about this issue in length to my local Member in Parliament (Insert CaptNKILL joke here) and he agrees fully, things need to change.

I believe we will soon get a R18+ rating in line with our films, I do not think it will change anything though, I believe the real core is the OFLC itself. As seen on Good Game on ABC2. Basically the reviewers actually feel a lot of banned games could have been sold under the MA15+, problem is they vote, send off the recommendation, then things happen and the higher ups just ban it.

Other than that game pricing needs to be reviewed here. The distributors and retail outlets here are not shy in saying they charge so much because "They can".
