As promised, the Australian government has opened up the debate as to whether or not the country should have an 18+ rating to the public. Hit this for details.

“Submissions are being sought on whether the Australian National Classification Scheme should include an R 18+ classification category for computer games,” said the attorney-general’s department.

“Submissions can be made by downloading and completing the submission template. Submissions may also be mailed or faxed. The discussion paper and submission template contain the contact details for making a submission.”

Get to it, Australian people. You’ve got until February 28 to explain to old people why you’re grown-up enough to see a cartoon gun shoot a zombie.
