It had been rumored, and even expected, for some time now that Grand Theft Auto III would be banned in Australia, and it looks like that’s exactly what has happened.  Seeing as how the previous games in this series were also banned in the land of kangaroos and crocodiles, this doesn’t really come as a surprise (especially considering GTA3‘s extremely violent content).  While I wholeheartedly agree that this game should not be played by children or bi-polar teens with homicidal and suicidal tendencies, it is indeed sad that such a great game can not be enjoyed by those who are mature enough to handle it.

At least those with plenty of cash will be able to buy it.
