Left 4 Dead 2 "Banned"
The sequel to the popular first person shooter has been "banned" in Australia, meaning it will not be on sale at all, unless the game is modified to meet regulations. The title was disallowed by the Australian Classification board as "The game contains violence that is high in impact and is therefore unsuitable for persons under 18 years to play." As Australia has to classification system above 15+ or Mature, this means games suitable for adults only can not be sold. However, the opinion was not shared by all members of the board, with the majority of them claiming it was fine and warranted a 15+ rating.
This move will no doubt add more fuel to the age old debate that violence in video games triggers people to turn into serial killers. It isn't the first time that a video game has been "banned" down under though, Fallout 3 was almost taken from the shelves due to the in game player eating morphine.
