Look at MTV it's like "hoe wannabe". In germany there is no blood/sex.brutality in games but you can buy alcohol when you 16 and no one even ask where this kid bought a gun but it's everything games fault. Not to mention granny porns on TV after 22.

maybe we should market the game as a virtual reality tv show. It'd be everywhere.

The key is art. When the politicians see games as an art form as they see all other media then we will be free! It's this stupid games = kids we must protect mentality that's annoying.

We need to get the ratings sorted then enforce them, we do it already for films and magazines (books do not even have a classification system and anything goes). So it can't be too hard to tell places like EB, if you don't ID you pay the consequences, not the game devs anymore.

There are far worse problems here with kids than games for people to worry about. Of course..its easier to point/blame it on the games...

When games are art they can put nude 6 year olds in them.

Hopefully they don't ban it down here. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Speaking of stuff ups. Prime TV here was showing the local Rugby Union comp on the Telly. Half way through it switched to Hard Core Porn from the Sky Network (they own Prime) You want to hear the uproar atm. Didn't see it myself, but i've heard all about it.

I would have complained if they went back to the Rugby Union.

Buying from NZ used to be our easy way out, now it seems NZ follows suit with our censorship. ::

Still this whole Fallout ban thing is just a rumour now. I really cannot imagine them banning such a high profile game.

i think banning it completely for "drug use", for having the ability to use morphene as a pain killer in the game is a bit excessive. I mean... that's what morphene is for! Would they ban it if you could take panadol? They didn't ban max payne for that. Bit of a difference between taking a painkiller in the game to heal and smoking some ice and robbing someone or whatever it is they are afraid will happen.

Wow, I haven't read a whole lot on what games have been banned, what haven't, etc. but this seems to be getting out of hand.
