An R18+ video games rating/classification is a step closer to being introduced in Australia, following the resignation of South Australian Attorney-General Michael Atkinson, the only AG against it.

This is excellent news! No more banned games, no more games with disturbing/violent content getting into the hands of kids, many games rated R18+ overseas got a MA15+ rating here.

Australia is currently one of the few advanced countries in the world without the R18+ rating/classification for video games.
