18+ Classification for Video Games in Australia sign now

Someone needs to give Michael Atkinson an attitude adjustment.

As Ratchet of Transformers once said, "This fool is terribly misinformed."

Repeated emails, letters and calls from the Australian public have failed to change this one ignorant man's stance on R18+ classified video gaming in Australia.

"I am next up for election in March 2010. The state district I represent is called Croydon. I would welcome advocates of R18+ computer games testing public acceptance of my policy by standing a candidate against me," he said.

"I think you will find this issue has little traction with my constituents who are more concerned with real-life issues than home entertainment in imaginary worlds."

One has to wonder what Mr. Atkinson does for enjoyment in his own time. No doubt a few of us could condemn him for something he may find enjoyable, like he does to us - without a second thought.

Australian retailers are losing millions of dollars in sales, and support from their local communities because people are finding other avenues of sourcing games that should be readily available, with the proper age restrictions. The point of the 18+ classification is to police the age of the gamers playing these games, and make sure they are in the appropriate hands.

We do not live in the dark ages, Mr. Atkinson - your ignorance of such issues because they are of no importance to you personally will not be rewarded - it will be your downfall.
