Fallout 3 looking to be banned in aus?

Postby aussiejunior » Thu Jul 24, 2008 8:04 am

What a load of bs. I was reading the other day on a website that fallout 3 is looking to be banned in aus???? :(:(:(

I'm a huge fallout fan and have the entire series lol
The olfc (or whoever they are) won't let us gamers here in aus have an r18 classification.
From what the article was saying it isn't the gore fpr as change thats stopping it but the use of chems and how realistic theyre pics are.
apparantly the biggie is the games is going to be using morphine or sum such and coz it gives ya ab benifit theyre clainimg that it's gunna spread the message that it's ok and cool to be addicted to morphine.\

We should start a petition to get the game allowed in aus

That sucks that there's that sort of thing going on. I love the fallout series. Unfortunately, drugs are all over the place in fallout. Ironically, if you've ever played it much, you'd quickly learn that getting addicted to a drug is pretty horrible.

oh yeah the drug addictions sucked big time lol... But theyre banning the game soley based on the games use of morphine and as all fallout drugs do it gives you some sort of boost before coming off the "high".

But theyre are plenty of ''new'' games on the market that have the use of chemicals in game...bioshock ring any bells? And they didn't ban it.


So why on earth ban fallout 3 when the entire fallout series has an absolute massive world wide fan base? And even here in the lil country town I call home which has an approx population of around ten thousand just about everyone I know is a fan of the fallout series

A sort of "big brother-ism" at play here. Too many gamers imitate the actions of the virtual world they play. Recreational or enhancement drugs can permanently damage the body.. and genetically mutate future offspring!
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
