Counter Strike and Everquest forbidden in Brazil

The Brazilian State of Goias Court of Law has forbidden local retailers to sell the games Counter Strike and Everquest. This is a federal justice matter according to the Brazilian legislation, making this decision valid at all national territory.

Everything begun with a Counter Strike mod (distributed over the internet) where drug dealers kidnap a United Nations official and the Brazilian elite police start a violent rescue operation. The mod features a "forbidden" sound track with Brazilian funk praising the criminals.

Regarding Everquest, the Customer Protection Authority (PROCON) comment is: "Everquest brings the player to heavy psychology conflicts at each mission that can be for good or evil objectives".

The original news can be found bellow in Portuguese. (Culture, Industry)

That's a shame for Brazilians, CS is one of the greatest online games ever made. CS: Source is even better.

As for Everquest, well, I've never played it.
