Australia May Not Get An 18+ Certificate Rating

South Australian attorney general Michael Atkinson is reportedly refusing to allow an 18+ certification rating in Australia. His opposition comes from the potential risk to children and vulnerable adults:
“People are participating and ‘acting-out’ violence and criminal behaviour when they are playing a video game. It certainly does restrict choice to a small degree, but that is the price of keeping this material from children and vulnerable adults."

“In my view, the small sacrifice is worth it.”
