    I'm so glad to live in Canada for this. Not a single banned game, which, for a change, pictures Canada as a rather open and progressive country. Let's just hope this doesn't change...

    Ok, so the artcle? Great. Cencorship everywhere? Just plane fucking retarted. Lets start with the fact that videogames, do not in many ways, encourage violence, wild sex, and use of drugs. Nutjobs, and parents who cant tell their children the difference between real life and video games are the problem. And the fact that cencorship everywhere shows the fact that everyone wants somone to blame. If a man bombs a building, European Leaders are always happy theres a brand new game bein released to take the fall. Christ... human beings are getting more pathetic everyday... I feel bad for the next generation XD

    If 45% of our population is serial killers and serial killers are people who kill more than one person shouldn't almost everyone be dead. With the exception of the serial killers of course. I said kill way too much in that comment lol.

    Yes in china you have a legitimate right to work from the age of 4 and a legitimate right to umm well uhh freedom of uhh umm things. Mao(er) Power!

    Australia? Really? Why would they be so strict? Look at America. They've almost never banned a videogame and only 45% of their population is serial killers.

    great read. I cant stand this type of censorship. Just let us big boys/girls play our games!! On an unrelated note. Tyler Kudos to the OXM Zombie special issue. Please tell me theres more kick ass stuff like this in the works.

    People's Republic of China. Infringement on others' legitimate rights. People have legitimate rights in China!?

    Germany is weird, I went there over the summer. While there I went to the mall. Everything was casual games in the console section, and the PS2 area was huge. Did anyone else hear about the GRAW 2 being banned in Chihuahua, Mexico? I think it happened... Does anyone else remember this?

    As an Aussie by birth I felt I had to sign up and stand up for the traditions of this great count... SCREW IT! this backwards little hick town of a Nation can't seem to get it's head around the fact that Video games are not just for children, the last government was so conservative that it felt Pong was subversive and the current one just has no idea about this stuff. I'm moving to Wales, at least they have leeks

    Let's just hope Ahnuld's Law gets thrown out of the supreme court...

    It's because of Australia us Kiwis got the watered down version of GTAIV. At least the ban got lifted when someone took the game to the PEGI and they said "this owns!". See Australia, our Government is cool.

    I had a feeling that (the ironically NOT sexy) Sexy Poker would be in this article.
  • poiman - September 30, 2009 10:02 p.m.

    that whole mass effect situation was overblown. im sure if kids wanted to see alien sex they'd go on something called google
  • Samael - September 30, 2009 10 p.m.

    If it wasn't for kangaroos, didgeridoos and Steve Irwin, Australia would totally suck.

    @D4rk2triker, yes it was banned for having the star of david
  • D4rk2triker - September 30, 2009 9:29 p.m.

    I read somewhere that Pokemon Blue version was banned in Saudi Arabia for having "Jewish imagery". wtf?
  • Cyberninja - September 30, 2009 9:15 p.m.

    thank god i wasnt born in any of those places on the last page but i think i am going to learn japanese so i can import the games that are not in the us.
  • Theonik - September 30, 2009 9:10 p.m.

    lol, there are still arcades here in Greece. So the law was barely enforced (I hadn't even heard of the law before reading it in the Guinness book of records). Nice article btw. Oh and i guess i'm first.
