German Violent Game Ban?

A report on German website CHIP Online indicates that Germany is considering outlawing all video games that include deadly violence or cruelty. Germany is already pretty strict about such games, but this indicates a vote will take place over the coming weeks or months to crack down on violent games even further. Thanks Gamezine.co.uk.

Welcome to the website Mr. Gibson. I enjoyed you in the Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, and the Lethal Weapon series. Too bad about the rest of your career and your life.

What I am stating is he saw a problem and perhaps that problem, shared by most of the world then and now, was that JEWS are a problem.

I'm pretty sure people named Surf are the problem.

If they ban violent video games they better ban violent films, books, music, etc... artwork. Classic paintings are very violent.

Ordered to by whom? I guess any time we see another race as a problem, extermination is a viable course of action.

And I suppose you aren't being deliberately antagonistic by calling Blue "The Jew", either.

Hitler didn't kill ANY jews first hand. His soldiers were ordered to, and I am not sure I read anywhere where HE did direct killing.

What I am stating is he saw a problem and perhaps that problem, shared by most of the world then and now, was that JEWS are a problem.

Maybe because when you say "Maybe Hitler was right", the implication is that the horrific wholesale slaughter of people in death camps was okay too.

And please. I'm not buying for a second that you don't understand perfectly how deliberately inflammatory, incendiary, and hateful your comments are.

I think it was COMPLETELY wrong of Blue (The jew) to remove my comment. All I stated was that I think our relationship with Israel has caused us endless tension with the middle east.

Maybe Hitler was right?

Why does everyone knee jerk that the jews were right? Why are the jews hated across Europe? Why was Israel denied by the UN but formed by the US?

I mean come on, Germans (And Russians who killed far more Jews) don't hate people blindly and for no reason? You also cannot deny that Israel has caused the U.S. so many problems, right or wrong.

So maybe Hitler was right? Maybe Jews are a problem, maybe they're not. Don't be so quick to brush off the media controlled perception of Jews as being the smartest, kindest, most open minded people in the world....

that just so happened to be hated by everyone in the world EXCEPT the U.S.

Censorship from Blue in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1


This proving MY point. Jew controlled media.

How many of soldiers have to kill how many American citizens before you admit that being exposed to violence can make a human being crazy?

Way to insult people who put their lives on the line for their country, chief.

And before you cast aspersions on anothers intellect, you might want to practice such intellectual endeavours as constructing a valid argument. 121 killed someone? Out of how many? Out of 200 it would be significant, out of 1000 less so, out of the multiple hundred thousands who've served in Iraq it means absolutely nothing.

Just a thought but maybe certain people in Germany are tired of often being the lead antagonists in violent computer games?
That said, this kind of politicking is misplaced, reactionary and ultimately damaging. I mean, great, there's a recession on so lets do some damage to our very successful games industry that's one of the few that isn't suffering quite so hard as other industries. Smart move, Herr Dumbkoff.
No country has a monopoly on idiots, particularly it seems, in government.

I blame the Jews and America's love for protecting and creating Israel for all our Middle East problems.

Maybe Hitler was right after all?

Proving my point I posted below. Is this person actually serious or just a Gadfly?

The main reason for all this crap is that right now we have a big coalition ruling the country which is composed out of the 2 biggest parties. Those 2 often cant find a consensus. But the far bigger problem is that there is no real opposition to tell them that they are talking and doing complete nonsense most of the time. Its a huge clash of interests internally.

I really hope it will be better after the election, but if this coalition will be there again, it will be just as horrible as before.

I don't live in Germany, so obviously CJ can correct me, but I get the impression that the national shame of Germany will be drying up quickly. The lawmakers right now grew up when it was at its peak. Rightfully. But their generation will be passing the reigns soon.

I'd be surprised if the children of the 70s and 80s feel as much that way. I think, in most of the rest of the world, the children from that time period see Germany as friends, not enemies. As makers of superior automobiles and women that become men when they hit their mid 40 (haha! Yes, a stereotype, but you can always pick out a few older married German women in an airport because they look suspiciously like their husbands. No offense meant, just tongue in cheek joking, as I'll do about any stereotype with truth behind it, particularly ones I fall into.)

It's a major election year in Germany.
Recently there was an 17 year old idiot gunning down 15 people with a legally obtained weapon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winnenden_school_massacre).
Now the council of ministers of interior of the federal German states, which mostly consists of conservatives atm, decided to ban video games, because they want to divert the public's focus from legal gun owners, who *surprise* usually tend to vote for the conservative party.
Unfortunately the other parties aren't any better when it comes to games with violent content.

What a dumb comment. I am German and I have absolutely no idea what that "other shit" is that you are referring to. And I don't think there are words to describe just how utterly retarded the Nazi comparison is.

What? You have no idea? Where have you been for the last 3 legislative periods?
Seriously, if you havent noticed all that crap yet, youre showing your ignorance pretty good.
What about the internet (child pornography) censorship that is planned while being actually utterly useless to prevent child pornography? Then it was just discovered that the government doesnt even call the providers of such content to get it offline, while some private organization did this and most of the providers actually took it offline. What about the 1 euro jobs that are grant-aided and forced by the government just so that unemployed people vanish from the statistics? What about the horrible crisis management? Everyone with a name in the economy tells them to not do what they are doing and they are still doing it. Look at the "Umweltprämie", which is pristine hypocrisy because it doesnt even help the environment at all. Its actually very bad for it AND the economy since the new cars are putting extra load on the environment, not to mention that cars which would have lasted at least 10 more years and have already been produced get destroyed. Already next year all those users of the "Umweltprämie" will not be helping the economy to recover because they already bought a new car and wont be doing that again for quite a few years.
Just a few examples you somehow didnt notice.

The Nazi comparison is not utterly retarded. Look at what they did once they had the power to do so. They had similar censorship and tried to monitor people like Germany is trying to now.
Germanys censorship was bad already, but right now its getting out of hand. They even wanted to ban paintball games. They even didnt allow some LARPs because of the "violence" that was going to be shown there.

You'd have thought that of all people, by now, the Germans would have learned that reactionism is a bad thing.

I am already upset that Japan censors its pornography. this is almost as bad.

Strange for a country where anime can show a demon shitting on a schoolgirl (or vice versa), but genitals are a no-no.

Though for many of those girls, the mosaics are better than not...

Interesting side note: It's like that in Japan as well, about militarism, and more interestingly, nuclear power.

If there's any likeness, it's not in the comparison you made to Geramny. Except for weird things like porn and mosaics, media is nowhere as censored as in America and certainly not Germany. The Japanese took the shift from imperial militarism to a free-market economics and a republican government model very viciously, it was the same kind societal transition made several times in Japan's past. It's not like they hadn't done it before.

As for dealing with past militarism, the Japanese certainly haven't tried to "forget" about it like the Germans and Italians. There's no shortage of stuff taken from their imperial past in Japanese media and entertainment. Nazi SS officers stationed in occupied-China during WW2 said some of the atrocities committed by Japan paled what Germany was doing. And that sad thing is, most of the atrocities Japan committed during the war were forgotten, but not suppressed. Exception being in their history textbooks where that time period is glossed over or barely mentioned, but that gets hit on enough by other countries (but...you won't hear about in the States because the US won the war and doesn't really care).

Typical brainwashed American superiority complex in action combined with a touch or racism.

The USA and Nazi Germany were both fascist states before/during (some say would say still...) WW2, so there's one thing in common.

I blame the Jews and America's love for protecting and creating Israel for all our Middle East problems.

Maybe Hitler was right after all?

Since you're rolling out idiotic statements, you may as well blame the British as well. When they were running the Middle East as a colony, they drew up the most of the borders that still exist today.
