    If a game is too violent for MA15+ then so be it. If you start rating 18+ games as 15+ then the ratings system fails. We need an 18+ rating for games.

    Buy a CD key online, activate in Steam, download.

    G2PLay is cheaper than Steam anyway, along with OzCDKeys. You can bet that OzCDKeys will have these in stock.

    Before complaining, how many of you have actually written to your elected member and the relevant attorney general of your state detailing your opinions on this matter? The ability to change the ridiculous lack of an adult rating for games lies solely in our States' attorney generals and the governments they're a part of.

    Anyway, whilst the it remains ridiculous that we do not yet have an R rating for games, I can only help but feel the current lack has done Australians a favour in this particular case.

    Wow. I wouldn't even rate L4D as violent. More like a comedy.

    good luck getting servers if you import it. No one is going to put up many australian servers if the game is banned. playing FPS on a overseas server is not fun.

    God damnit, makes me want the game in an uncensored version MORE

    That's a good point. Chances are the 'gore' will be turned down, and the game re-submitted for classification.

    I just love old people making the moral decisions for me. I do not have the capabilities to make those descisions for myself. First I have some barren old witch tell me abortion is bad. No I have some retarded old man tell me what code I can and cannot run on my computer. What is next, some guy tutting over my shoulder when I masterbate in the shower?

    Hows, L4D 2 differ from the first L4D? Seeing as that one was released here.

    I guess theres no chance of Dead Island getting released here.

    Move to south australia and vote for Isabel Redmond in 2010.

    Alternatively we could doctor up some documents which implicate atkinson in dodgy dealings :p

    NZ servers are fine to play with long as you have an decent connection (ADSL2+)

    I've played on NZ servers before no issues.

    Apparently they have issues with the melee weapons. Lots of blood spurting onto the screen and also can disembowel people so people running around with cuts in their torso with guts coming out.
