The Land Down Under

There’s been a lot of stink the MMO gaming news these past couple weeks, about the Australian government deciding, all of a sudden, that MMORPGs should have a rating. While I do believe that Australia not having an M18+ rating (or whatever it’s called) a bit too much censorship to make me feel totally comfortable, I don’t see anything wrong with rating MMOs.

Here in the US, we have the ESRB that rates all of our games, online and not. So I don’t see why it’s a big deal for Australia to do the same thing. Now, if they were deemed “too adult themed” (such as the boobs in AoC), then there may be a problem. But then again, nothing is stopping the Aussies from just downloading the games off of the internet, and avoiding the box sales.
