Damn, thats just messed up. Still, I think its outrageous that one can campaign against a single form of media, despite books, movies and TV shows regularly depicting violence against people all the time, even with mythologies that draw people into an imaginary reality....

"where the main part is to realistically play the killing of people or other cruel or inhuman acts of violence against humans or manlike characters."

So anything humanoid in a videogame, which lets face it is totally impractical.

Somehow reading that made me remember the time Back in the days when they Banned the first 3 CDs with Cannibal Corpse in Germany :s Cause of the Artwork on the covers ^^

Germany enjoys smacking the Ban Hammer around in the name of Censorship

People have to understand that the people playing the games are the cause, not the games. If they bannish games, they might as well do the same for the violent movies and shows. If people don't know and can't see the difference between games and real life, they don't even deserve to use the computer, imo.

I got a prediction.

There is gonna be a huge black market in Germany if this law gets accepted, and enforced. There will be a black market for violent video games OR there is gonna be a LOT of piracy in the upcoming future of Germany. MUAHAHAHA

My question is how they BEGIN to enforce that on the stuff people already own. Yeah, I'm sure the video-gestapo is going to go into every home and purge any cover with a gun and a man on it. The best they're going to do is block the connection to the IP's of certain game servers.

God, this is just so asinine...sometimes I wish there was a WMD we could launch that released a mushroom cloud of SENSE instead of radiation, or that gun in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy that made people see things (temporarily) from your point of view.

Of course, that would have positive AND negative repercussions.

Even if it's passed, nothing to big will come of it. People will always find a way to get what they want, and much like the prohibition on alcohol back in the 20's, people will use such methods.

You know why Germany hates violence in it's movies and games so much? I swear they're afraid of the German Bloodlust or something. It's my own theory that if Germans are exposed to much violence, they go bat**** nuts. :p

Lol, nah, I dunno really. They've censored blood and gore for years...but this is just going to far. They're really being Nazis. Wow, so even if it's not the same form, Germany is back in the 1930's/1940's mindset with this kinda stuff.

I can see a lot of German immigration to America, now.

If any of you Germans want to go half on an apartment here... lemme know.
