As the debate on video game classification debate heats up in Australia the religious right is on the march with the same old grab bag of ill informed sound bites and scaremongering. Angela Conway is the spokeswoman for The Australian Family Asociation [url]http://www.family.org.au/[/url] which styles itself as a sort of conservative think tank.Here's her latest comment on the issue
I heard the soundbite:[QUOTE]The Australian Family Association's Angela Conway says violent video games can exacerbate mental health problems and any changes to classifications would be dangerous.

"It there are problems with that young person already, then this technology will turn them into a lethal killer," she said.[/QUOTE] while I was driving this morning and I nearly crashed my car. These tactics, while common to right wing groups are unhelpful and misleading, I haven't heard anyone mention allowing pornographic games to be sold in Australia and I thought the problem here was that the censors were banning games only because of a lack of an appropriate classification for violent material.As I've posted before we are able to buy 18+ European games here, the problem is that they are re packaged as 15+ games which is misleading to parents and gamers alike.

And we're always the last when the cream is shared out
