Banning the game 3 months after release seems so... pointless. Banning a game when it can be imported from one country over also seems pointless.
It is pointless, because the moment the BPjM bans a game, ALL the german kids want to have this game and they will get it

This is all the more strange because I believe Germany is a pretty big gaming market, so you'd expect them to behave a little more sensibly on these issues.
Dont expect sensibility when politicians know that they can gain cheap votes by "protecting the youth from violent videogames". This way, everybody feels ok because someone did something and everyone forgets to really care about children.

Banning stuff is an easy way for adults to avoid uncomfortable truths about the way they treat themselves, their children, how children are raised, what world they are born into.
