In case you missed it, last week it came to light that DayZ had been refused classification in Australia taking us back to the classification stone ages, once again. The reason, despite the game being out in the wild for a fair amount of time now, was because a submission was made by local distributor, Five Star Games for a physical release of the game, with the classification board citing drugs within the game as the issue.

The thing is, this seems to have come about because there's Cannabis in the game which you can use to heal you, and we've seen this happen in the past, most notably with Fallout 3 where Bethesda famously went back to the development drawing board and created new names for its numerous healing and buffing devices.
"Through general gameplay, the player is able to collect and use a variety of equipment, supplies and weaponry. One of the options to restore the player's health is a marijuana joint, labelled 'cannabis', which is denoted by a cannabis bud in the player's inventory.

"The use of drugs (marijuana) as an incentive or reward during the gameplay exceeds what can be accommodated within the R18+ classification and therefore must be Refused Classification."
DayZ developer Bohemia initially said despite the RC, the digital version of the game -- again, having been out in the wild for quite a while now -- would not be affected, but that looks set to change thanks to an update on all things zombie survival from Kotaku AU.

So, despite the most recent IGEA report stating that, in Australia, the average age of gamers is 34, we're still stuck in draconian concepts and ideologies, despite being able to stream Dave Chappelle's stoner classic, Half Baked.

Maybe it's time for the Classification Board to grow up, and not the gamers.

For the sheer fun of it, here's a flashback video of
