ELSPA tells Labour: BBFC is not fit for purpose
ELSPA boss Paul Jackson has told the Labour Party that the BBFC is not fit for purpose as a ratings system for UK games.
Jackson was speaking at a Labour Party Conference fringe event, where he once again claimed that a PEGI-only solution for the UK was the right choice.
“A linear ratings system like the one the BBFC uses is designed for films with a beginning, middle and end where the outcome is always the same,” said Jackson.
“It just can’t cope with the infinite variety and complexity of modern videogames, and the interaction between players.”
