Any game you wanted that was banned or censored in your state? Not any for me since I live nowhere in Germany or Australia but what's your answer?

Here's a List of Banned Video Games I found, this describes the number of video games that have been banned in various nations.

The one thing I'll say for sure, when something gets banned, that's like a loss of Independence right there and the sad thing is some of those nations tend to bring even the most Violent Video Games right into Politics, thus the huge reason why Entertainment shouldn't mix with Politics, even if the Entertainment from movies and video games features political references (such as the 2012 film Lincoln).

That said that list will bring interest to those willing to see since some people on Newgrounds don't even live in the United States of America.

The Australian government needs to realize that censoring video games is only making more people pirate games.

The UK hasn't had all that many bans, at least none that I particularly care for.

The Guy Game wasn't basically kiddie porn. It was a stupid quiz game that rewarded you with tits if you got the answer right. It turned out that one of the girls who showed their tits was 17 years old.

Actually, there was a game in development, I think for the PS1, that ended up not being released because it was deemed to be far too violent. I can't remember what it was called. I remember reading about it on IGN.

But yeah, we have it good here, especially compared to Australia. That shit is fucking ridiculous.

Except for nazi-themed games, I can't think of censored video games. No.

It was Thrill Kill, and that game was supposed to be EA's answer to {developer formerly known as} Midway's Mortal Kombat, but it apparently pushed the line too far, and after enough bitching from parents groups and their allies, the game was canned. If I had to guess, if this game was made in this generation, then I wouldn't imagine that it would get any flak beyond the usual suspects.

But yeah, we have it good here, especially compared to Australia. That shit is fucking ridiculous.

Not only that, but Japan actually bans/restrictions on games than we do, {although a lot of them are games made in the U.S that are imported to Japan} but considering that extreme content is looked the other way for the most part there, a ban there means little, if anything.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Yeah, that's it.

I agree, that is almost certain.

Japan

I didn't know that. As if censoring their porn was bad enough. This sort of thing sickens me.

The over-the-top violence of Thrill Kill made me laugh when I read the Wikipedia article on it. Although I heard the gameplay sucked, which is always the saddest thing about controversial video games that have a really neat concept.

A murderous redneck cannibal from Kentucky who fights with a severed leg of one of his past victims.

Another example that I thought was a brilliant concept was Battle Raper, a two-part series where you battle girls and knock their clothes off (you can also use special 'molestation moves' on them). On top of the name being hilariously catchy, it's such a fresh diversion from text-based eroge that I'm genuinely disappointed the game never got a decent sequel or remake, and that the controls were never modified to be smoother.


If I offer to help you in a post, PM me to get it. I often forget to revisit threads.

There seems to be no information on games banned in Canada.

I guess there are none.

The only game that was ever banned in Sweden (not because I wanted it) is Dead or alive: Dimensions and the reasons for the ban was, and I quote wikipedia, "because of the harsh laws against child porn. The Scandinavian distributor of Nintendo, Bergsala, cancelled the game's release because characters could be placed in "suggestive positions".

I don't know if it a ban was necessary since I haven't played to judge for myself. But when it comes to seeing "suggestive positions" I usually think it someone else dirty mind that see kiddie porn in something that is actually quite innocent. But again not having played the game I can't say for sure.

I can't really think of any over here, but I'm sure an Australian would be saying the same thing if you asked if any games WEREN'T banned over there.

Yea, apparently it would have been the first game to receive an AO rating too. Watching this review of the game they got very close to completing it, had endings and all before it had to be scrapped. Pretty different in that it was 4 way battles unless it was the final boss where it was a one on one battle.

But yeah, we have it good here, especially compared to Australia. That shit is fucking ridiculous.

If I remember correctly, almost all of the Grand Theft Auto games were banned there.

Aside from Thrill Kill, I don't think there is any other banned games that look interesting in my opinion.
