EA VP: Germany Should Drop USK "Censorship"

GamesIndustry.biz quotes EA executive VP and GM of international publishing Gerhard Florin, who does not conceal his frustration in a conversation with German website SPIEGEL ONLINE over the German rating system that is exceptionally strict about video game violence. Florin calls the system "censorship" and demands Germany drop its USK system in favor of the Pan-European Game Information (PEGI) system used elsewhere. They also offer a counter-point from USK head Marek Brunner, who points out other regulations influence this situation, including German criminal law, and that the there are "no plans" to adopt the PEGI system.

Oh, BobBob ... and that is why we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of our fathers over and over again. We make complex situations simple, because we don't want to think, WHY these things happen. Is "Germany started WWII" correct? Yes! But this answer is incomplete. You HAVE to consider the reasons, why it all started, to prevent further incidents.

Why was Iraq and Afghanistan invaded? Because these fucking terrorists bombed the WTC! Right, but incomplete. Why have they done that? Because the US government is an ally to dictatorships in Egypt and Saudi-Arabia. And to Israel. Terrorists (or freedom fighters, seen from the other side) attack the USA to force an end to US engagement in this region.

And so on, and so on ... ALWAYS ask, why someone does this or does that. If not, don't complain, if you find yourself suddenly, for example, in a war.
