After the decision was made, the people @ Bethesda must have been in a good mood.
I could understand the ban on Wolfenstein but banning Doom is nothing short of oppressive. I mean, seriously, it was a bunch of sprites effectively no different than a animated-flip book drawn in realtime. Stupid governments do stupid things.
Germany is a funny place when it comes to "morals" and such. Music bands can run around with a prosthetic penis on stage yet a red pixel that represents blood is banned. Different culture is different.
If you are referring to Rammstein and their act during their song "Bück dich" (= "bend over"), well everyone knows that one will not take small children to their concerts. While videogames are thought to be played as a family (governments follow certain stereotypes when it comes to gaming).
Too bad it's just 15 years too late...
yeah i guess the game out not the right time
I see why they did ban DOOM one of the maps had the swastika cleverly in-bedded in the map design.Along with witchcraft symbol`s.Last thing they needed back then was for younger generation to ask what are those,They have been tiring to forget like the rest of the world....
So if they had the original Doom banned, did they ban Doom 3?
Just another piece of the awesome legacy of Adolf Hitler. Though our country is kind of ridiculous in being the opposite--blood and violence is so much more generally "tolerable" than nudity and sex. Especially when it comes to children's exposure to such. I mean one has it's basis in love and life (though granted most porn twists that around and some is violent itself) and the other in hate and death yet we consider the latter to be less "taboo".
