    In Germany, government own you.

    Srsly, one of the biggest gun manufacturer, Heckler und Koch is german based. Same for Austria, Steyr. Belguim with FN and Israel with IMI have this too?

    I mean. Common. There is more than enough real weapons in the wild. Actually its not a joke. You can have a gun, but you cannot buy game with guns.

    But there are blood patches and piratebay. Hehe. Sorry.

      i unterstand the symbol problem and yes for me its ok go got alternativ symbol in games


      but there are games censored with no symbols "condemned: Criminal Origins" for exampel is banned by the Police and the game does not hit any symbol law's

      means censorship in germany isn't a clear 'law' usage


      in general censorship is bad and the use of banning games are only a way to makes clear no one can make an game against nazis for exampel Wolfenstein was banned by the police but in germany the symbole usage is legal if the games are against nazism
      ''''
      means the police is just fasism ans they use there power to hurt 'Left' side people.

        If you want an uncensored version of Postal 2, gog.com has it for $10, and it's DRM free.

        You can most likely buy whatever games you want outside of Steam. It's not like anyone is forcing you to buy from them. Of course this doesn't work for Steam only games like Team Fortress 2 or Left 4 Dead.

            I have seen both systems (and seen games that were banned or modified under both systems) and Germany has a censorship system thats FAR worse than Australia.

              Sometimes when reading this discussions I get the feeling that people only get worked up about this blood and gore thing because they can't get it. It's like a bunch of kids who you forbit to eat from the cake... and now their biggest desire is to have some of the cake.

              I mean seriously... it's just a game. And they are about as enjoyable with or without blood. Did it really matter that C&C had robots instead of humans in the German version? No... and if it would have had them in the English version, no one would have complained and demaded humans as soldiers.

              P.S.: Yes I am from Germany, and I think that kind of censor ship is unnecessary.

                It ain't banned, in that case you wouldn't be allowed to import it either. It is only forbidden to publically display and / or advertise it, as well as to sell it to minors.

                  about the blood thing - I have to agree. I forget what game (possibly UT3, or L4D) that many people were complaining about because the German version was missing things, and that it sucked, etc etc etc. Then someone pointed out that the only thing different was the missing blood - and that it said a lot if people needed that to make it a good game!
                  There's only one game where I'd argue that a little bit of gore enhances the atmosphere - AvP. Even then, from what I've seen of the latest game it could certainly be toned down a lot and not affect anything.

                    there are some games like carmageddonII in this game its essencial to kill all the lifing thinks on the map

                    and the bloodfree robotic version of carrmageddon is also banned in germany.

                    because the hole point of the game is killing ALL around you to win!
