Submission + - Australia is one step closer to R18+ video games (

Benaiah writes: Australia is one step closer to getting an R18+ rating for video games following the resignation of South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson. He suffered a smashing 14.3% swing against him in the recent election and has decided to step down to allow "renewal" in the Government's leadership. He has repeatedly used his veto power to prevent Australia from having an R18+ rating on games and as such big title games such as Fallout 3, Aliens vs Predator and Left4Dead 2 have been banned or censored.
