I’m going to guess and say if it makes news headlines they will ban or classify, you know like if
we see prince Harry is saying fortnite is bad and we google and see all the parents complaining about not being able to raise their children, or If I have a specific religious view the new Doom could be banned because I heard about how evil it is and i’m protecting the children even though they shouldn’t be playing it.
Then again a few years ago I really wanted to get castlevania lord of shadows and couldn’t buy it on Steam because It never got classified by the FPB, It would be good to know how they do this @SIGSTART maybe you can talk to some people and get a article up about how the FPB works on game classification would make for a good read.
Cool thanks man, I missed that article somewhere along the line definitely would have read it.
I think an interesting angle would be to see if they are unbiased or attempt to be unbiased at least,even though its three people reviewing material I could see how it easily could still fall prey to this, realistically I assume if people are reviewing the content using guidelines they probably just do a copy paste of whats already provided because it to much overhead to regulate everything in reality and its more about money than regulation unless they receive complaints ?
Looking at their track record, I think it’s fair to say that for “ordinary” content the classifications process is fairly mundane. Basic age-restrictions to help parents make decisions about what they should allow their kids to play and watch.
It’s only with politically- or culturally-charged content (The Spear, The Wound) that their censorial tendencies rear their heads.
