Right now the German interior ministers discuss a ban of the so called "Killerspiele" killergames. The german website pcaction.de put up a gallery with games that will be banned in Germany, if killergames are going to be banned. Very interesting.
They should ban all 360 games and hardware.The systems are faulty and have a higher percentage of rotting your brain with boredom.
Idiot. How aren't you banned yet? Your fanboyism makes you look like a child.
bs article, pcaction is getting worse bye the minute. 1.the term "killerspiele" isnt even valid 2.such a ban is highly unlikely 3.we have the strictest rules on games in the world allready 4.some of those games arent even under the "rules" that a ban would cover. instead of actively working against this populism politicians, they make a childish article...
like you said this is highly unlikely. wtf? that would really suck and it's not fair in any way. i say bs, but if it happens there will be alot of germans going abroad lol.
All "Killergames" will be banned, and no more "killergames" will be released in germany. And no production! That does mean: No Crytek-> no Crysis 2.
well maybe its because im a bit older, a ban based on a term like killerspiele is highly highly unlikely and pure attention grabbing bye our looser politicians bevor elections start. sawn, ignored, moved on.
Thanks for the insight. Bubble
Crytek has a couple of studios. One in Germany, one in Hungary and one in the UK.
Don't forget Crysis Black Sea, in Bulgaria. Previously known as Black Sea Studios, the developer created the well-received games Knights of Honor and WorldShift. I am really conscious to know what they are developing right now.
Why the hell are you retards disagreeing with me. Look it up...
If germany bans these games itll just mean dev studios there will move to another country, or shut down. Either way, germany looses money on an industry bigger than the film industry. Sounds completely idiotic...
Germany is one of the biggest gaming markets in the world when it comes to PC gaming. The German government should work with game developers to develop criteria games have to meet certain requirements. Yes I do realize rules do currently exist but those were drafted decades ago, For World War games at least, maybe the German government should start relaxing rules? For instance, if the game meets certain criteria when it comes to historical relevance it can pass. A game like Call of Duty probably won't meet these credentials but a game like lets say Velvet Assassin (Made by a German studio ironically) or Brothers in Arms which explores soldier relations, differentiate soldiers from criminals, etc could be sold? This is technically done in Germany for films, a movie called "Stalingrad" (great film btw) shows the Battle of Stalingrad from the German perspective, it differentiates Nazi's from Germans, criminals from soldiers, etc on both sides (Russian/German). That movie was allowed to be sold in Germany despite its subject matter. Of course for games with fictional story lines it would be different but at least it's a start?
Although I guess you could consider the Germans lucky if the government bans "Legendary".
Lets see............a country that started two world wars can't play violent games.I don't get it.
....Germany didn't start the first World War, they were dragged into it thanks to a piece of paper, coincidentally they were one of the largest/strongest.
elven bubbles for history knowledge.
The assassination of Archduke Frans Ferdinand got the World into WW1. And you cant necessarily blame all of Germany for the actions of one man, and his crazy followers.
Right, even then if you want to get really technical you could say no one country started World War II but a collection of them did thanks to their actions after World War I. If you want to get further into things the Japan/China war which started in the 30s and ended in 45 was incorporated into World War II to keep things simple, so technically you could say Japan started the war. Civilians don't start wars, leaders do, the civilians are just their to pay the consequences.
Yeah Hitler only followed his younger education on ultra-nationalism by men like Benito Mussolini based on far right wing philosophy. He was a friend to Lenin as well. Most of us are more balanced. Modern day conservatives like me are quite open to people who are not like us. We uphold the constitution with freedom of speech, and the right to bear arms. You can believe what you will and we don't hold it against you. If you believe something different, we don't judge you. You can believe whatever you choose to believe in. That is the true spirit of the US.
I can't see all these games getting banned. Censored tho...I could see that happening.
Wow thought this stuff only happend in Australia.
