Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Banned in Australia

The controversial game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, has now been banned in Australia.

The San Andreas came under a lot of fire because of downloads that allowed the game to show explicit content.

If this is the first you have heard of the game check out these posts:

In this one I discuss why Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was deemed too sexually explicit.

And in this one I discuss how Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas had its rating changed from mature to adults only (R).

Australia's Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) had withdrawn its M-15 rating of the game because of it's explicit content.

It now can't be sold, or rented anywhere in the country.

So, what is all this explicit content?

Well, in the game, the character takes a woman on a date. If the date ends up going well the character then is able to have sex with the woman.

The player has control during over all sexual movements and his reward is dependant on how well the female responds to the sexual actions of the character.

That scene was not meant to be in the game, but was an original idea. Programmers found that all they had to do was unlock this section to make it playable.

You do that by downloading a Mod or Hack. So, now you know how an already controversial game got really controversial.

Clearly, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is not for children!
