Gamers worse than gangs

South Australian Attorney-General fears for his family

The South Australian Attorney-General feels more at risk from gamers than he does from motorcycle gangs.

Speaking on ABC TV's Good Game about the debate around an 18+ rating in Australia, Atkinson said, "I feel that my family and I are more at risk from gamers than we are from the outlaw motorcycle gangs who also hate me and are running a candidate against me.

"The outlaw motorcycle gangs haven't been hanging around my doorstop at 2am. A gamer has," he said referring to a letter he said was posted under his door.

Australia's largest videogame retailer, EB Games, is currently promoting an online and in-store petition for an R 18+ classification. The sooner this goes through, the better for everyone.
