Ozzie game-handling is “utter BS,” says Jaffe

Tuesday, 8th December 2009 08:06 GMT By Patrick Garratt


He’s back! Eat Sleep Play’s David Jaffe has decided to break radio silence to call Australia’s political view of games “bullshit”. Phew. Things were getting boring, there.

“There’s a government board and if they say it’s too offensive, in that case there’s no fight to fight — it is what it is,” he said, speaking this week at the Game Connect: Asia Pacific conference in Melbourne.

“There’s not much you can do if you’re making games aimed at a mature audience. We never like to cut it, but what are you going to do? You’re dealing with governments.

He added: “There’s absolutely an inconsistency in the consciousness about video games. The reality is people still see a lot of these things as kids’ toys. It’s utter BS.”

Thank God for that. Come back, David. You make the world a brighter place. Thanks, IGN.

    it’s not actually the ratings boards fault, it’s a right-wing religious nut politician who wont allow a law to be passed that would create an over-18′s rating the board would then apply to games like GTA

    Zarckan, you’re thinking of Australia, we’re talking about somewhere over the rainbow.
