Dusty imagine that but 10x worse, that's Germany for you. Video game bans and censorship is just ******ed overall though. I bet if you depicted New York in a terrorist situation it would be a huge no-no.
Many movies and games had to remove any content that even remotely dealt with an airplane and a tall building... even if it wasn't crashing but just flying by. And this is only just
beginning to loosen up.
I don't doubt that other countries are worse off, I know Australia is particularly bad about it as well. You know what though? It's not the censoring that gets me but the inconsistency. One game gets by with insane amounts of violence but another game gets banned for a little blood. It's really stupid and I wish governments would let parents actually be parents instead of acting like a strict babysitter.
ps I've grown up playing violent games and watching horribly bloody movies. I'm probably the one of the nicest people you'd ever meet. If someone manages to let a video game influence their real life then they had problems to begin with. Sooner or later they would have ****ed up whether they played a video game or not.
