This Grand Theft Auto thing is getting out of hand....besides, wasn't Australia founded just so they could have a place to put criminals? So how is it that a bunch of criminals are getting so worked up over a game that let's them do what they do best? LOL, BTW, that was just a joke.I don't know anyone that steriotypical.don't get mad,k? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I don`t mind if stabile person/child plays it, becouse they can make difference between game and real life, but sume kids are just to, sorry to express, so stupid that they think they can do same thing their game character does.Well I don`t think so...

I just gotta respond to this http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Seeing as i live in Australia, i'm going to protect my own.
And honestly, if someone makes a game such as this, and includes in it things which go above it's rating, what do you expect really?

Also, Australia is not the only country to ban this game.

And the one thing that seems to be overlooked with topics about this game is not the game itself as it was. Although, i know that it wasn't liked from the start.
Its more about the new scenes which can be unlocked so easily.

Game is rated mature, meaning it shouldnt be sold to minors, has an adult who has completed the game i dont see why it shouldnt be available to teenagers though, 16+ seems alright to me, nothing really that terrible there. Aussie government wont achieve nothing with this other than incentivate piracy and help advertising.
Rockstar wont change its "style" because of this, they already sold 20+ million copies or so i've read, banning the game will only make it more appealing to the kids too.
Im wondering what other games have been banned in AUS too?

blaspheme!sanan is anything but boring
oh an mouse3, from what i know,that scene is anything but easy to unlock, it consists of spending a couple hours downloadig it to your computer then you have to spend a couple more hourss downloading the mod, and then you have to upload the patch on the game(i havent used the bad mod, but this is how most mods are)u would have to be pretty desprete to spend 5-7 hours to get a sex mini game

They will get over it eventually, when Doom first came out there was outrage around it and teh "shoking" content, but look at it now, UT2004 Doom3 , Prince of Persia http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, and so on games with alot of violence so they will get over sex at some point

I wouldn't have a clue as to how easy this is to access. But when news of this broke a few days ago, obviously we had a story on it here, and the woman doing the report said they actually tried it to see how easy it was, and said anyone could do it, and it took them a couple of hours.
