OH man, I just found out that GTA3 is illegal in Australia, i dunno how many of you knew but i just got word of it. It was illegal because of one scene where you could pick up a prostitute and then kill her. It was only 30 seconds or so of footage which has now been taken out. The game is going through reclassification and will be re-released soon in Australia and New Zealand. <img src=" title="" src="graemlins/laugh.gif" />

That's just sad...

Greece. I rember that law going in affect. It has to do with gambling and how out of control it became. But the Arcade industry put out adds showing major politicians gambling in non gambling areas. Still the politicians won and blamed problems on video games.

Yea I heard about that awhile ago. Pretty retarded people that made that law.


violent death, perversions, misery - I hope there will be an end
for these unfortunate things someday, but the reality must not be censored
