It seems a clever soul has gained the support of a local MP here in QLD and generated an e-petition in support of an R18+ rating within the QLD Government. I’m sure many of you are thinking, “Another petition? Well, that’s useless”.

Not exactly; E-Petitions that gain significant amounts of support get officially submitted to parliament for discussion, and at the very least, puts the issue in the forefront of the state assembly for a while.

As a result, it may even get some media play, or (hopefully) become a pet project for a committee and encourage support. In any case, it’s another cog in the growing practical support machine to change the outdated and basically ridiculous rating system that has neutered games like Fallout 3Left4Dead 2, and Grand Theft Auto IV to name but a few.

More info and link post jump.

It’s worth noting that you cannot sign the petition if you don’t live, or at the very least, don’t have an active address, in QLD. If you do, please contribute your signature and show your support.

Many campaigns for change in QLD have begun with one of these, and it’s certainly a great start to push the QLD Attorney General into action and pledging his support for a change in the system.

The petition is here.

  1. Now if we could just get one of these going in Victoria. I feel sorry for our South Australian friends all of a sudden :P

    Victorian attorney general Rob Hulls also supports an R18 rating. Its just that one guy, attorney general of South Australia , Michael Atkinson that blocks it in parliment. Its clear to most people that he uses it as a stepping stone for his own political career, advocating the whole family first, Who will think of the children mentality. When will he realise that and R18 rating will do more to protect children than not. Parents will be less likely to buy a game for their childs with a rating system, i mean if your kid asked you for a porn dvd would you buy it? No of course not, so why buy them violent games and then jump up and down because you dont like what you see?
