    Honestly, I have just given up. I cant be bothered to get angry anymore because nothing is going to change. Until we get an R18+ rating, we continue to get shafted and this only increase the import industry.

    They're douchebags with closed minds and no lives which need to have 18 year old virgins sent to their houses so that they can get laid.

    To be honest, when I first saw this a couple of days ago, I thought that it was a bit too much, but after some thought, I snapped back into reality and told myself it's just a game.

    Aww, come on! I just hope they don't cut anything out the game, seems like a great story. I would hate to see them cut out half of it because some Australian's got mad!

    Fixed for accuracy.

    Those douchebags aren't accomplishing nothing since most of the purchases of these games are by adults who have credit cards and/or paypal to import the games if they are banned or aren't released in Australia.

    Oh don't worry they'll just make it so theres no blood, decapitated limbs, or dead bodies lying around. Oh and probably remove all mentions of being a terrorist and guns. Think of that episode of south park, where they remade the movies and replaced the guns with walkie talkies, that's what will probably happen too. /s

    First the OFLC screws L4D2 and now this... just great... It's just like what people have been saying this is all Atkinson's fault.

    Bleh, like I care about those nit-picking idiots. It's just a fucking game for fucks sake, and they make such a fucking big commotion about it. I have COMPLETELY lost my faith in humanity.

    Go burn down their offices and get protests and petitions going to speak out against those pricks. Sounds as bad as that Jack Thompson asshole. And it's funny they complain about this yet they have no problem advertising terrorists on TV through hostage situations and whatnot, I mean jeez a game like that is just like real life.

    u cant blame em, it's policy... maybe they are worried they will be too wayward like many ppl in us which has caused crime and indecency

    ofcourse many are not going to be affected by the video but due to a handful of kids, they wanna keep it away
