    This. Makes. Me. Want. To. Vomit. (and is the extremely clean version of my thoughts on the subject)

    What a depressingly familiar story. Corrupt and dishonest through and through.

    It's weird isn't it, how we all just accept we are slaves to the government. Remember folks, we still are the ones with true power. If we could just gather enough like minded people who are willing to fight, we could tear everything down right now and there's nothing our governments can do about it. All it takes is for people to say enough is enough.

    With the R18+ rating in place, it is expected fewer video games will be refused classification. Games may still be refused classification if deemed to contain material unsuitable for R18+ classification, such as depictions of sexual violence or the promotion of illegal drug use. More specifically, games which may be refused classification include:

    • Detailed instruction or promotion in matters of crime or violence.
    • Depiction of rape.
    • The promotion or provision of instruction in pedophile activity.
    • Descriptions or depictions of child sexual abuse or any other exploitative or offensive descriptions or depictions involving a person who is, or appears to be, a child under 18 years.
    • Gratuitous, exploitative or offensive depictions of:
      • (i) violence with a very high degree of impact or which are excessively frequent, prolonged or detailed;
      • (ii) cruelty or real violence which are very detailed or which have an extremely high impact;
      • (iii) sexual violence
    • Depictions of practices such as bestiality
    • Gratuitous, exploitative or offensive depictions of:
      • (i) activity accompanied by fetishes or practices that are offensive or abhorrent;
      • (ii) incest fantasies or other fantasies that are offensive or abhorrent.

    That's not the point, though. The point is we have a nanny state that feels they're perfectly within their rights to ban anything they don't agree with, regardless of the weak, lame excuse they use to justify the behavior.
