The UK and Australia have both enacted new laws banning the use of ‘resident evil’ remastered video games as a way to lure children to exploit their parents.
The laws were enacted in the wake of the infamous ‘Resident Evil: Extinction’ video game, in which a video game villain named Resident Evil played a video of his family massacred by children.
Since the release of the game in 2007, more than 3,500 people have been killed by children in Australia.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron signed the law into law in March this year, and the UK and Australian governments are expected to discuss a similar law next year.
