Soldier of Fortune: Payback rejected by OFLC
Due to the fact that Australia still lacks an adult category for video games, Activision's Soldier of Fortune: Payback has just been rejected in Australia by the OFLC, possibly because the war violence was just too much for the censors. This latest game in the SOF series has now joined the previous video games that have been refused classification, including Blitz: The League, Reservoir Dogs, Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, Narc, Manhunt, Singles: Flirt Up Your Life!, Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude, and heaps more. This is further proof that the Australian Government is out of touch with every country who, a long time ago, have taken into accounts that adults still play games.
