Is there anything that isn't banned in Australia? :P They certainly seem to jump on the ban-bandwagon a lot. Although I agree with them banning a lot of artificial colours, I can't stand those things...but seriously, why? It's hardly a torture game or anything...(Unlike Manhunt, which was also banned over there I think). Apparently it "promotes drugs"...although to be honest, I don't think people are suddenly going to swamp the dealers in there thousands because "It's in Fallout, so it must be good!". If they're that daft, they'll probably end up on drugs anyway :P.

Simple solution - import it from europe

Many people in europe imported Animal crossing from australia when they got it a year or so before us.

Fall Out is probably one of the best game series of all times, at least in this humble gamers opinion, to the point that it is on all 8 of my computers, and on a mini drive so i can play it at work when the boss isn't around.

Regardless, hopefully what weill happen is that we will see some cosmetic edits to the code to remove some of the obvious problems, as was done with the US release of The Witcher. Then if you want the original content later, you can just download a patch.

Be glad you don't live in New Zealand. If NZ First get their way, all R16 and R18 games will be banned. > The logic behind this is that violent video games encourage young people to be violent and join gangs. : What I find ironic is the fact that one of the main reasons for a ban of GTA4 is that it has prostitutes in it, but our government legalised prostitution in New Zealand. ???

The report if anyones intrested:
