I wonder what it is like to live in a country that bans video games for being too violent.
I love that one of the reasons quoted by the Australian Government for banning this game is that it depicts violence toward the homeless and elderly. As of this is somehow worse than violence toward other sorts of people.

This is not too unusual. I work in the video game industry and there are some funny things about what countries will and won't accept int heir media.

Germans: No animated blood or Nazi references.

U.S.A.: No Sex.

U.K.: No Apparent restrictions on violence or sex.

North Korea: They don't have video games in North Korea but if they did they would have to be "Historically Accurate". For example, according to the North Koreans, they singlehandedly beat the Japanese in WW II.
