Atkinson on Aus R18+ Fight

Atkinson won't surrender anti-R18+ fight on GameSpot has a profile of Michael Atkinson, the South Australian Attorney General widely regarded as the stumbling block impeding the adoption of an R18+ rating that would allow adults to purchase adult games in Australia. They outline his position that a discussion paper to assist in debating the issue will not be complete without images of the games being discussed, saying without images: "They’ll have no idea how violent or sexually depraved they are, and what kind of torture, drug use, and blood spatter they include." Atkinson also describes getting hate mail and death threats, and seems comfortable admitting that as this point he's willing to disregard the facts of the matter in the name of what sounds like a vendetta: "It's unlikely I’ll change my stance [on R18+ for games] anytime soon, considering the last death threat I received was pushed under my door at 2am, presumably by someone who doesn’t like my stance on R18+," Atkinson said. "It was like something out of a Hollywood film--letters cut from magazine headlines arranged together on a page. I receive abusive emails from anonymous senders on a daily basis. I get called a paedophile every single day. But I won’t surrender."

No, The ridiculous levels of Violence, sexual abuse, drugs, rape, murder and the like NEEDS TO BE STOPPED. The whole culture everywhere is being turned more and more perverse with each passing year.

You guys can say what you like but your brains are already warped. Open your eyes to what is going on around you and Stand up and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

You can have fun video games without all the profanity, Excessive violence, dismemberments, sexual abuse, drugs, beatings and the like.

This thing needs to be brought back into some level of sanity.
