LOL

Between legal and illegal. It should be a comparism.

There's nothing illegal in Wolfenstein. But, I remember it was banned in Germany so it may be illegal there.

Ah, probably that´s the reason. It´s only on the index in germany.

In germany (concerning the public and media) we are very generous concerning sex but very straight concerning violence. That´s the better solution than in the US where it´s the other way round.

I don't think it's the violence in Wolfenstein which got it banned, it's the nazi symbols in the game. Also, the Nintendo version of the game Hitler had no moustache in the pictures and swastikas were transformed to crosses. Talk about censorship!

More so, yes. But the violence had been enough. There are plenty of other games that were band just for the blood or the violence(e.g. Doom, Resident Evil 2 etc...)

If in germany a game is banned you´re not allowed (in a games paper) to re-print ANY screenshots of the game(even the harmless ones) and mention it´s name!

The funniest advert for Doom I´ve ever seen was a black picture instead of a screenshot with the subtitle D**m below.emoticon

I still have Wolfenstein 3D, I find it less violent than an average episode of The Three Stooges...but maybe that's because violent video games are the norm here.

Re: the swedish rock charts


I'd just like to give Milan a special award for the first posting of a Hitler 'smiley' on the forum!! emoticon Brave, or just daft, I don't know..... emoticon

I like battle games, and in any combat simulation you need an 'enemy' by definition, so anything based on the world wars will inevitably involve the military and politics of many years ago.

I think the least 'politically correct' game I've played lately is 'Delta Force: Task Force Dagger' where you get the chance to use a brilliant array of lethal weapons whilst clearing Afghanistan of undesirables. But the 'enemy' in this game are all stereotypical Middle Easterners who are really slow to react when you start to unleash the lead at them!

When the last James Bond film was made, I remember that North Korea complained about the way it was portrayed! With so much peace apparently breaking out in Europe, they seemed to be the last 'real' enemy for him to fight against. But I don't remember the Soviets complaining about 'From Russia With Love'?! emoticon
