R18 games - vote... again

Australia still lacks an R18 classifications for games--it's pathetic.

But the government is running another survey to get public opinion. If you are an Australian please vote for your preference.

Naturally I'm hoping everyone will vote to support R18. I don't want to be treated like a criminal when I import games like Mortal Kombat.

I voted for R18 but against the proposed guidelines.

I felt that sex as a reward should be suitable for M15+, rather being restricted to R18. Why must sex be treated as such a taboo.

I also feel that drug use as a reward should be acceptable in both R18 and M15+ when in context and it clearly does not promote illegal activities. For example, Fallout 3 should not have been refused classification for refering to it's health packs as 'morphine'.

Read the draft guidelines.
