Oz Attorney General Fears Gamers More Than Outlaw Bikers

South Australian Attorney General and the only politician standing between Australia and a mature rating for video games, says that he's more at risk from gamers than motorcycle gangs.

"I feel that my family and I are more at risk from gamers than we are from the outlaw motorcycle gangs who also hate me and are running a candidate against me," Michael Atkinson said on ABC TV's Good Game.

Atkinson says that a gamer slipped a "threatening note" under his door early one morning.

"The outlaw motorcycle gangs haven't been hanging around my doorstop at 2 a.m.," he said. "A gamer has."

Atkinson is perhaps almost as famous for playing loose with the facts in his colorful proclamations as he is for his singular stance against the introduction of an R18+ rating for video games.
