Just under two weeks ago the Australian Senate held the first hearings discussing the Australian games industry and what the Australian government could be doing to help nurture it. This is all part of Senator Ludlam's inquiry, which he secured in June 2015.
A lot of interesting topics were discussed: diversity, industry, taxation issues, funding. These are all serious issues that need addressing. Hopefully we'll see some genuine change as a result of this.
But it was also hilarious to hear politicians trying to get their head around video games.
