Yeah, Another Game's Been "Banned" In Australia

Illustration for article titled Yeah, Another Games Been Banned In Australia

Free-to-play MMO Crimecraft has been refused classification in Australia, on the grounds that it uses drugs as an "incentive or reward".


It's the reason Fallout 3 had to be edited, and why NFL Blitz has never been released in the region.


Another game effectively banned, blah blah blah, yada yada yada. It's not the first, it won't be the last, and anyone that draws attention to their ignorance by saying "what, Australians don't like violence?" or blames the entire government (it's the fault of near-sighted beaurecrats in the 1980's and a single state attorney-general), please, don't.

Paradox me

I approve.

We must also begin banning games that reward you with money. Money can potentially buy drugs. It's the same thing as rewarding you with drugs. In fact, I think we're going to ban money in real life as well.

We know what you're trying to do gamer. Not on my watch, chief.
