E3 2010: Games to be banned in Australia?



We saw an innumerable amount of video games at E3 2010, which either blew our minds (Portal 2!) or induced involuntary yawning (anyone for Battle Chess?)

Among the variety of games showcased, we couldn’t help but notice some of them might be greeted with a big fat ‘banned’ label when trying to enter Australia.

The lack of an R rating for games in Australia has been a cause of mounting frustration among gamers. Video games that have fallen foul of the Classification Operations Board include Left 4 Dead 2, Silent Hill: Homecoming, Fallout 3 and Aliens Vs. Predator. Here is a list of the games at E3 that might put the Classifcation Board’s panties into a twist.
