    God I hope so. I want to see the mass rioting that ensures.

    I bet the OFLC would get a few mail bombs from diehard fans.

    hmmmm.. EB/Harvey norma/GamesWizards would be up for a lot of refunds if this game is banned from our shores.. think of all the pre-orders that wern't done over steam :|

    Lots of games get rated R in Europe get MA15+ here. The same as lots of movies in America get R but MA15+ here.

    Can we please keep on topic, its about HL2 being banned in Australia, not how you got your uncut copy of GTA into Australia.

    That is true, but the OFLC seem to be under the impression that as we don't have an R18+ rating for games, our MA15+ rating is slightly higher than other countries.
    Personally I'd rather tighter MA15+ and an extra R18+. Despite what they believe about kids getting access to R18+ games, has *anyone* under 15 been ID'd when buying a MA15+ game?

    Nah, they wrap it in the new OFLC fuckoff foil that stops them from scanning it in customs for hookers.

    Does this even need discussing.

    If Doom3 made it here HL2 will.

    There is no use speculating.
