This week we are joined by Derrick H of All Games Radio to discuss games that have been banned.  As a medium that started marketing to children, governing bodies and the games industry have consistently worked together to avoid the dangerous word of censorship.  Our panel discusses the roots, press, and various actions taken to edit or ban games that are deemed inappropriate for public consumption.

  1. The original Mortal Kombat was never banned in Australia… we were buying it and playing it on our Megadrives back in 1993… bloodcode, fatalities and all…
    The 2011 reboot was banned for excessive realistic violence until the R18+ rating was introduced in 2013, when it was unbanned and classified R18+.
