Manhunt 2 Refused Rating

Manhunt 2 has been effectively banned from sale in the UK, reports The Register. This comes only weeks after the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) issued a report detailing the need for an analytical approach to videogames as a maturing medium.

The BBFC have betrayed their nativity, and the people they represent. They are so far removed from reality, they fail to fathom that Manhunt 2 will still be available, albeit through means of import and digital distribution. The BBFC are relics. To them, modern society is a locomotive that travels too fast for their comfort.

Take Two's projects seem designed to wallow in controversy. Perhaps this is what they had intended since Manhunt 2's conception. I hope the game sees the light of day, though.
