Modern Warfare 2 has just got a rating appeal in Australia. South Australian Attorney General Michael Atkinson was the one to do it, and if successful the game will be banned there. He said, I worry about any game that encourages gamers to perpetrate extreme violence and cruelty on screen, but this game allows players to be virtual terrorists and gain points by massacaring civilians.

I feel like he's in the right on this. Mainly, because, the edited version of L4D2 had to be used. This game is worse than L4D2 in my opinion, and if the real version of that was banned, then this should be too. That's just my honest opinion.

To be fair though, its a freaking game for gods sake... it annoys me how people get a bee in their vag about violence in games when there have been plenty of violent games even since the Genesis/Mega Drive days and even earlier. Films see this kind of thing all the time yet they are allowed to be released.

Call of Duty is a war game, terrible things happen in a war and those who choose to play it should be consciously aware that the content of the game may contain violence and terrorism. Also, how can this guy comment on the game if he clearly hasn't played it - you don't earn points at all from killing civilians - most of the time if you do you get a penalty or you have to restart the level!

As if anyone in their right mind would take what they see in a violent game and then act it out in real life... and those that aren't in their right mind - shouldn't be playing it. It's up to the parents to teach their children the difference between right and wrong.

Also when some kid goes and shoots all his classmates - the parent's start blaming all these games for what happened when they allowed their kid to play it without actually viewing it's contents first. They think that changing peoples attention to the fact that games like this exist will somehow stop everyone from focusing on the fact that the kid has done a terrible thing and that maybe he will get off lighter. BullSh*t - if a kid does something like that, whether they got the idea from a game or not, he/she still acted on it and they should suffer the penalty like anyone else.

Games like these are rated 18 for a reason and anyone of age who can't figure out that the things in the game are strictly for inside the games and not real life, quite frankly, needs to be put into a padded room.
