Pax Pirata: Censorship in Gaming, Media and Society

A discussion of censorship in the gaming industry, both regarding games or their classification and related issues as they affect both the media and society around gaming. Though some aspects of games classification have been updated in recent years, there have been other legislative changes (not all directly relating to gaming) which increase the avenues for censorship by direct regulation, corporate influence or societal pressure.
