The original Fable was rated M, but the HD remake is getting a rather more restricted classification.
But for its anniversary edition next year — essentially the same game remade in high definition — the title has been given a rating of R18+. "Why?", you might be asking. Does the violence become more difficult to watch in high definition?
Nope. According to the Classification Board website, it's for "Sexual activity related to incentives and rewards". What reward, you might ask? Well, according to Kotaku, it's because if your player character jumps into the sack with a non-player character, you might get a baby.
That's right. People under the age of 18 are too delicate to understand that having sex may result in a baby.
Shhh, no one tell the Classification Board about The Sims or sex-ed classes.
