Forums - Gaming Discussion - We Happy Few ban overturned

We happy few's non classification by the Australian ratings board has been overturned on appeal  the 3 person board accepted compulsion games appeal.

Their defence was that the drugs use rather than being a form of in game reward it's use was to control the population by the in game dystopian government  and as a form of supression it's had a negative role . the board  gave it an R18+ rating with no changes to the game except Interactive Drug Use -  Fantasy Violence added to the label.

Around the Network

I unfortunately wrote a thread about this ban being lifted awhile ago.

I wonder if it has anything to do with MS and there powerful lawyers.

Australia. Where games are censored, but a fat mining overlady is free to say that miners should be treated like slaves to get her even fatter.

A fart without stink is like a sky without stars.
