Australia has seen its second public rally take place—in as many months—in the hopes of growing public support for the addition of an R18+ videogame rating category.
Sydney was home to the latest event on Saturday, January 9th. Organized by R18+ Games Australia head Luke Lawrie, who is also a writer for AustralianGamer.com, the happening took place downtown in the vicinity of the Queen Victoria building, and, from all accounts, drew in excess of 50 people.
Lawrie told Gamespot that he hoped to target older Australians and non-gamers with the group’s message of a need for an adult rating category for games.
A similar rally, put on by Treat Us Like Adults, took place in Brisbane in early December and drew a similar number of attendees.
