13. Re: Dead Island German Ban Nov 30, 2011, 05:17 Towyn
 
Germany has two separate lists, the "index" list, also known as "A-List", which contains games like Doom 3, or even (until recently) the recent Rammstein Album. This means that these products are only to be sold to adults, are not allowed to be advertised or seen on shelves. Selling them from "under the counter" is legal. And then there's the B-List (banned). The last games on that list are, for example, Manhunt, Wolfenstein (the remake, for the swastikas) or music albums that contain various extreme subjects, a recent example would be a very graphical description of raping little girls or a call out to stand up for your country and kill foreigners.

The big difference is that the A-List is not illegal to own, though you need to make sure that no minor is allowed to get into contact with it. Where the B-List is actually banned. The items WILL be confiscated and if you sell them you are very much treated on the same level as a drug-dealer. And as such it is quite surprising that Dead Island made it onto the B-List. Everyone who owned it on Steam probably had it confiscated by now, aka simply removed. And that's just plain stupid...
