Australian officials banned the computer game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and ordered it to be removed from the stores that sold the game yesterday 7/29/2005. It seems the Hot Coffee mod was the last straw for Grand Theft Auto in Australia sice they are so tense on games like gta.

"Revocation of a classification means the computer game cannot be legally sold, hired, advertised or exhibited in Australia from the date the decision is made"-The Office of Film and Literature Classification

"Businesses that sell or hire computer games should remove existing stocks of this game from their shelves immediately"-Des Clark, director of the government-funded classification board.

Thats really odd, because the people that classify all the games and movies etc, just changed the law allowing AO rated games. Why they have banned GTA baffles me.

Amen to that wallbash_red.gif

Its illegal to sell, borrow, advertive etc R rated games (which is the equivalent to AO) here and all the GTA games have only just snuck in as MA and this was the final straw sad.gif

Everyone goes crazy over some bullsh!t sex game if you ask me the "Shooting peoples heads off with an AK-47" is much much worse....

I predicted this months ago. GTA III and (I think) Vice City were censored to hell, and with the Hot Coffee mod San Andreas would be banned completely. Now it's happened. Why the fuck can't gay-ass politicians keep their huge snotty noses out of our pies....

That's fucked up man. Can't these assholes see that is a damn game? They might as well ban about 80% of the games out there for violence. Shit... For once I'm happy I live in Romania. Here the goverment is too busy with other shit and they haven't said shit about any video game. I guess this is the beginning of the end of the world.
I feel sorry for the people in the goverments around the world that pick on video games and I have one advice for them: GO SEE A FUCKING THERAPIST!!!

They sell XXX rated porn and kids can also watch/view it freely on the internet without a credit card but they target the games industry! wallbash_red.gif

Im currently 22 years old at the minute, are they saying I can't own GTA cos I'm still a child in their damn eyes? huh.gif
