Australian Church spokesman welcomes restrictions on 'adult' video games

July 16, 2012

New Australian legislation restricting sales of “adult” video games has been “cautiously welcomed” by the director of the Australian Catholic Office for Film and Broadcasting.

"In an ideal world the sort of material included in R18+ or higher classifications for films or computer games would never be seen in a civilised democracy," said Father Richard Leonard, SJ. “But this is not an ideal world,” he added, and so the new measure—which is designed to keep violence and obscene material out of the hands of children—is a move in the right direction.
