Australian OFLC should introduce an 'R' rating for Computer Games

  • by: Josh Coates

The OFLC keep taking our games away, with complete disregard for the fact that the huge majority of gamers are adults.
The Classification Review Board is a four-member panel who are refusing classifications for many games that are in the top ranks world wide. Why, because games in question warrant a refusal of classification because they contain elements beyond those set out in the classification guidelines and legislation for a computer game at the MA15+ classification. Exactly, for the MA15+ classification, but if there was a R18+ rating it would then fall into that classification and there would be no need to refuse classification.
Refused Classification means the game cannot be legally sold, hired, advertised or exhibited in Australia. Any existing stocks of this game held by retailers must be removed from shelves immediately.
Please help even if you’re not an Australian, because in the end the entire gaming industry loses.
