Toadstool1969: WWE SmackDown! vs RAW and Need for Speed Carbon beat Gears of War in Australia? WTF is going on down under? Time to put the crap away and start playing some real games. I think it's partly due to the lack of popularity to the Xbox 360 but I have to agree it's baffling. Who would wrestle sweaty guys and race around corners rather than tearing apart aliens with a chainsaw?
One of the main problems with this is that the definition is too broad, even games lik Mario and Zelda utilize some sort of violence. If this went into law minors would've only be able to buy edutainment games and a few sports games. (Wouldn't tackling in football fall under the definition?)
Ever since I played the overhyped (at least I think they were) LotR games I've been bashing EA as a company that only succeeds where the originality is done for them, like sports games, franchises bought from other developers, or from third-party developers that usually are only in cooperation with EA for publishing or something like that.
