Uh-Oh, Omega Labyrinth Z Refused UK Classification, Confirmed By PQube

"You read that right, Omega Labyrinth Z has been banned in the UK -- or at least, has been refused classification from PEGI, the UK's age rating body for video games. With the type of content in the game, it's not surprising it's already been refused German classification with USK."

No surprises there. But Murder Death Kill is absolutely fine for corrupting young impressionable minds. I think VSC need to rethink their stance here because in this day and age of Me-too, snowflakes etc. it would be just as fantastical for anyone to think the behavior in this game can be mimicked in real life without dire consequence. Much like the distinction is easily made with shooting guns in game and then in real life.

*Sigh

A shame. Time for an import then.

"But Murder Death Kill is absolutely fine for corrupting young impressionable minds"

That argument doesn't work at all. Violence and sex are completely different and are censored for completely different reasons. I keep seeing everyone use this argument, but it's a completely fallacy.

Chaos_Order2265d ago

At the same time, in the UK it's completely legal for a 16 year old to have sex, and yet a game with sexual content is deemed unsuitable for 18+. (The highest PEGI rating) Kind of odd when you think of it that way.

Mr-Dude2266d ago

So glad I live in a country that doesn't censor my videogames

ErogeMaster2265d ago

But we do have and adult rating meaning most games that border line that rating is gonna be censored.

chris2352265d ago

damn. if we just knew this back when ghengis khan reigned in blood or when hitler went wild. if we banned videogames back then they wouldn‘t have done all these atrocities. in no way is violence part of the species. no, humans just need to take a look at a violent comic or video or game and *switch* they go ballistic. *facepalm*

FlyingFoxy2265d ago

This is rather funny, at least when we have anime with underage chracters in sexual situations classified at 15/18, and the odd few at 12 ratings with some fan service.

Makes you think.. There's at least a couple of highly sexualised games classified at 16 by PEGI too.

And governments continue to decide what is good for us, instead of, I don't know, us doing it!!

The_Jackel2264d ago

thank god for no region lock on consoles huh? lol

bluefox7552264d ago

Seems like plenty of things are being banned in the UK these days.

The_Sage2264d ago

How can a government decide what an adult chooses to view if it is not all out criminal?

neomahi2264d ago

On a continent where public nudity isn't that big of a deal, secular society reigns supreme, and women can show off as much of their boobs as they want as long as you can't see a nipple, and they're fussing over this? Britain has a lot of other issues to work out first before tackling this. I applaud them for wanting to create a better society, but they've got conflicting messaging.

milohighclub2264d ago

Have any of you read this? From the sounds of it the games encouraging paedophilia. 1st time I've agreed with a game getting banned.

kevnb2328d ago
