Game Ratings? Singapore Got It Down Pat!
Like the Malaysian government, the Singapore government is pretty anal on censorship, but when they do stuff, they got style and panache (but with the occasional misses), unlike the smug looking politicians populating the Malaysian cabinet, acting like Pharisees all the time while greasing their palms (I know it’s a catch all, but that’s how generally things are in MALAYSIA).
In any case, check out the website for Singapore’s Media Development Authority. They have a classification system for video games. To complement this, the site has a search tool to allow users to search for game ratings! How cool is that..in comparison, Malaysia doesn’t have one.
Anyways, more on the game ratings search. Some of the latest games are already searchable (Halo Wars, Henry Hatsworth), and the search engine even accepts acronyms like GTA. A sample search result looks like the following:
|Romanised Title||GTA – CHINATOWN WARS|
|Also Known As|
|Year of Release||2009|
|Consumer Advice||MATURE THEME, SEXUAL AND DRUG REFERENCES, AND COARSE LANGUAGE|
Pretty cool huh? Click here to check it out.Powered by Sidelines
