I sit and type here before you at my computer to discuss some rather bad. I wanted to know everyone's thoughts on this dramatic poop,as far as no R18+ rating..... for the only country in the world Australia.
Computer games offer the player many things, from improvement in hand-eye co-ordination, to social opportunities, to the chance to gun down virtual civilians lol. But one thing that is not on offer in Australia is a game with R18+ on the cover.
In relation to films (which are permitted an R18+ classification), R18+ means that the material is of "high" impact. The highest legal classification for video games is MA15+, which allows "strong" impact. Anything higher is Refused Classification, or effectively banned. Such as: titles like.
-Mortal kombat 9 (Which got banned due to graphical violence in the game.)
The average gamer in Australia is 20-30 years of ages which is a very mature age.I live in a country where i need to be told what to watch as an adult and what to play in games as an adult.Now i don't think that is fair, considering that im 21 and the legal age in Australia that you "classified" an "adult" is 18 years of age. i mean letting things such as dead rising 2 or left 4 dead 1,or 2 (which were banned because of zombie killing).
The question i wanted to ask is,How do you feel about people telling you what can and can't do as an adult (if you are one)?.
Feel free to leave comments!!!!!!

As much as I hate to say this, if you dislike your country's way of dealing with things, leave it and find somewhere else where you like the way things work. Also, be prepared for the bad consequences that you may dislike about the country.
But then again, yes, I want Australia to have an R-18+ rating. It's just sad that my friends down under can't play the same games I do, unless with restrictions.
