So says The Movie Show’s Margaret Pomeranz in this interview with Byteside concerning the issue of video game classification in Australia.
While Pomeranz admits she isn’t a gamer – but she will “fight for your right to play them!” – it’s clear her experience in the film industry and all of its classification issues over the years have provided her with plenty of insight into the topic.
She tells Byteside’s Ben Mansill:
“I think it’s dangerous… it’s the start of danger when you have a government effectively saying, this is what we will allow you to see, and this is what we will not allow you to see. Fortunately they have very little power these days because we can see anything we want… as long as we’re prepared to break the law. And what you’re doing is turning people into criminals.”
Byteside held a lively debate on video game classification on Tuesday night. The full discussion will be up on the site soon. Check it out.
