He's at it again!
South Australian Attorney-General and video game censorship advocate Michael Atkinson is to appeal the MA15+ rating handed out by the Classification Board to Modern Warfare 2.
Speaking to Radio National, Atkinson was asked for his views on the recently released game, described by interviewer Peter Mares as “violent and bloody and graphic and confronting.”
“I’ll be appealing against that classification, I think it’s wrong,” said Atkinson.

Thoughts? I can't help but think that if he succeeds and the rating for Modern Warfare 2 is raised to RC, this could prove to be an interesting catalyst in the ongoing debate around the R18+ situation.
