Man, it's really gotta suck to be a gamer in Australia. Not only do they usually get the games last, but they either get watered down censored versions of the games, or they don't get released there at all because of the content. I'm actually kind of amazed
such a moral Nazi government has been in power there so long like that. =P
Actually, getting games last isn't always true and I might be wrong here but I don't think it's the fault of the Government either. The games aren't censored all the time either. The issue just seems to spark up when a particularly popular game is censored
or refused classification. Hopefully an R18+ rating will change that if it ever comes in.
True. They do censor some games, but most are just simply banned for easier convenience. They would let more in if they passed an R18+ rating, but the current status on that is shaky more than anything. The current person in charge is against basically anything
violent, so it's not an easy task for them right now. I hope it does get passed soon, though. Being cheated out of games because a rating isn't set is a terrible system.
