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.
