There's actually quite a few Australians on GS, you can spot them easily.
Its better, but how much better is debatable, IMO its more like a "MA18+" rating instead of R18+, they still ban a few things. I wouldn't be surprised if parts of GTA 5 also get cut from the PC release, I wont say anything so I don't spoil it for anyone who hasn't played it.
It doesn't apply to movies, the games classification is different.
Hmmm....now that's a bummer, really. I'm a PC only gamer and haven't played GTA V yet, but I know which parts you're referring to. Maybe if the situation arises (not just for GTA but in general), I'd have to resort to the 'tricks' you mentioned in a previous post, to be able to play games uncut.
I haven't come across too many Australians here. Most people here are Americans, I guess. And a few British as well.
If you don't mind waiting for 2-3 weeks (I'm just guessing) after GTA releases or any big name game, just import a US/UK retail version from Amazon or wherever you want, and yes that's legal, if you have to have digital, its a little harder.
I don't usually buy games at launch anyway, because most PC ports these days are unoptimized loads of crap with more bugs than you can shake a stick at. 2 to 3 weeks doesn't matter at all. GTA V shouldn't be a problem though, because it would be at least 8 to 9 months before I can migrate (considering I first need to obtain the PR VIsa and then have a confirmed job offer before moving). And maybe by the, the censorship over there in Australia might have eased further, and there wouldn't even be a need to import them. And i don't suppose I would be able to afford games (apart from those on sale) for the first few months in Australia, considering the insanely high cost of living there as well as the inflated price of games. Depends on how well=paying a job i get. By the way, mind if I contact you through PM? I needed a few clarifications, and would appreciate it if you could shed some light on those!
