The US does the exact same thing. It's tiem more games come out where people can shoot Americans. I'm tired of always killing Russians. Not because I don't like Americans, on the contrary. But just to show the world everyone is equal. A videogame where the US president is the bad guy and you have to kill him. The US would ban it like crazy.
There is a big difference between the government mandated ban and a few retailers. Allowing retailers to sell it if they so choose is also a part of freedom. Walmart is not an agent of the government, and if you get a copy you are not going to jail.
This thing is so laughable. BTW...quit searching for major titles. There are video games made in the middle east that support terrorism (sort of like the opposite of America's Army). You can find them and legally download them if you like. No one would go to jail. They are not banned. In fact, the Supreme Court backs your right to choose to play them if you like. When it comes to video games, the US is the most open and free market in the world.
A swear, most US citizens have no idea what their rights are or understand what censorship is. Just because a retailer does not sell a certain game you are not losing your rights in some way. Now, if the government mandated they couldn't sell the game, that is a different issue. I am sick of people that bash their own country and yet have no idea what they are talking about.
edit: BTW...that last statement was made in general, not to Hukkel. I hear the same stuff from people in the US all the time about retailers and censorship. It's bull.Edited by being that guy - 11/29/11 at 12:16pm
