What is it with Australians and video games?
Adults should be free to purchase whatever they like!
Australians are strongly in favour of an R18+ classification for computer games, but possibly for different reasons among different sections of the community.
When we say "free speech" isn't a value, what we mean is that we don't define it the way Americans do

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
for the average person in states and territories excepting Western Australia, it is not illegal to posess games that have been refused classification.
The Customs spokesperson said someone caught trying to import RCed games into Australia could expect a fine of up to three times the value of the product, or AU$110,000, whichever is greater.
Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor says after a decade of debate, it is crunch time.
"We're becoming the laughing stock of the developed world, where we're the only country that doesn't have an R18 classification level for video games.
"I foreshadow that if there is not a consensus around this issue, the Commonwealth will certainly be considering other options because we cannot continue to have an outdated classification system that's actually, in my view, causing harm to young people."
The Federal Government says reforming the system will help protect children, inform parents and give adult gamers more choice.
