GoW Creator David Jaffe: Aussie Classification Board Labels "Utter BS"

by Annette Gonzalez on Dec 08, 2009 at 06:01 AM

God of War creator David Jaffe recently said the Australian classification board’s labels are “utter BS.” God of War III is set for March 2010 in Australia and has yet to be classified. In the past the franchise has received MA15+ rating for violence and sexual references.

“There's a government board and if they say it's too offensive, in that case there's no fight to fight — it is what it is," Jaffe said at the Game Connect Asia Pacific conference in Melbourne. "There's not much you can do if you're making games aimed at a mature audience. We never like to cut it [content], but what are you going to do? You're dealing with governments.”

He went further to comment on the view of video games as toys for children and not much more.

“There's absolutely an inconsistency in the consciousness about video games. The reality is people still see a lot of these things as kids' toys. It's utter BS."

Do you agree?
