On the other hand, there aren't many countries in the world that started 2 world wars.... call it a slow dying German quirk (the same reason our government is still being completely stupid on where to send military aid) You shouldn't forget that those in charge in politics now are still DEEPLY engrained with the whole war cause thing and grew up during the cold war (which was very very cold indeed at the East/West border / post war era that defined them where it was taught in schools that Germans need to somehow feel guilty. This has changed nowadays but the teens and tweens and young adults are not in charge, yet. So yeah, sometimes the German "Index" is pretty damn stupid. But more often than not, I can MOSTLY agree with what's actually denied classification. Dead Island is a good example. That game glorifies violence as MAIN element of the game. And such games are simply taboo here, like nipples and saying fuck are in the state. And for the record, the only reason Dead Island is not playable in Germany is because the publisher was retarded and used Steam as DRM method. And Steam has no age verification system (which it would need to actually sell Mature games in Germany) So steam is to blame on why some games are unavailable that are not on the index, as I said many times before.

But Germany has so many internal problems that I am not expecting this to change anytime soon. A government that changes this, would likely have to be the pirate party (whenever they get a clue how to be a party, that is) with at least 30% of the votes.
