This TEN Eyewitness News item from 1993 examines the vexed issue of video game classifications.

The reporters interviews a Timezone arcade customer about the levels of violence in current games. The arcade proprietor argues that classification of games would be hard to enforce but believes the industry would be willing to support self-regulation.

The story also features part of a Parliamentary discussion of the sexual violence in a recent game, Night Trap.

The Commonwealth Government introduced a classification system for games later that same year.
