You'd wonder how he would like it if someone came over to his golf course or whatever and started telling him what is 'appropriate' and what is not. I never cease to be baffled by people who want to force their own ideas of what is permissible on others, when there is no harm done to anyone. No one was ever killed because there was an 'offensive' game being sold. what is the logic here?

Also, doesn't Australia have a constitution to protect its citizens from these kinds of people?

Zachary Amaranth:
Just what we need. More ferners for the Republicans to blame for a lack of jobs.

Just organise an exchange. Whenever a frustrated Australian gamer moves to America, you send a registered Republican to Australia. And I don't mean one of the cities, just air-drop them in the middle of the wilderness.

OT: I honestly don't know why Australia has such a problem with this issue. It's like they're still trying to cling onto one of the "big issues" that other, bigger countries once dealt with but nobody sent them a memo saying they've moved on.

I mean, how long's it been since they first proposed the R18+ rating? Feels like a fucking lifetime.

Australia's so beautiful, though. It'd be a shame to see it raped by the GOP.

Though personally, I kind of want to drop the "No government regulation" conservatives in one of those lawless, third world countries, and see how the free market works out for them. :)

You poor buggers, Australia. For what it's worth, we in Britain also know what it's like when a politician betrays you like this. You should come and live with us again, at least your games wouldn't be censored or banned over here.

"SEX:
Sexual activity may be realistically simulated. The general rule is 'simulation, yes-the real thing, no'."

Where is the game that teleports a hooker into your house for some real sex? Or am I misinterpreting something here?

lol, the irony is that there are movies like SAW and Hostel that are not greeted with the same hostility.

what has Britain done that is similar to this?

Greg Smith:
"I think they should be banned," Smith said in a televised report on Australia's 7 News. "It involves a prostitute giving sexual favors for money to a man in a car, and then when she gets out, he comes out with a semi-automatic rifle and shoots her dead. Now what good does that do anybody?"

Again with the prostitute slaying... what is it with people these people that their obsession with killing prostitutes? They're like a dog with a bone.

I think its a freudian thing..like how preachers who preach about purity end up sleeping with hookers...If they keep harping on about hooker slayings, probably means they have some skeletons in their closets lol.

OT: Im sure im not alone in saying "Fuck you Greg Smith, you massive cunt". :D

Bullshit on his comment about the game.

Hookers don't go far from your car quickly, so a shotgun or full-auto SMG does the trick much better than some fuckin' hunting rifle.

This man is so mis-informed, I cannot take him seriously.

grass grows, birds fly and Australia has silly rules about video games. What else is new?

Andy Chalk:
Australia's elected officials being derpy!

Oh, look.

It's the uptight conservative asswads again.

*chews cud and moos*
