Last night on G4's Cinematech they showed movies from the games that are banned. Most of the games were banned in AU, so I wonder have members from AU notice this before?
For example BMX XXX is banned for strong sexual content and nudity. (How bad that can be for kids )

I've heard about this a long while back over at gamespot they posted some games like that, isn't like some of the GTA games banned there also?

They ban a lot of things, they have some of the strictest censorship laws in the world.

Isn't that what ESRB rating is for? To stop games being banned?

Yeah it's there but the problem is it really isn't enforced there aren't any penalties for say selling a Mature rated game to a minor, but that slowly changing.

In germany a lot of RTS games had to be changed (robots instead of humans) and I think C&C:Generals was banned for a time.
