As a result, it has taken some time for us to become sufficiently familiar with the medium to deal with it appropriately. With increased familiarity, we can deal with video games on their own terms (rather than as films or videos).
Louise Amor can rest assured that we treat all works containing violence (whether in films, videos or games) with the utmost seriousness. Kingpin was passed "18" because we recognise that it is designed and marketed as adult entertainment. There is no reason to assume that such material will be given a lower age classification in the foreseeable future.
