It is not fully correct, some games can not even bought in a low violence version in Germany via Steam - is it then banned or not - try this url:
Team Fortress 2 is low violence version in Germany, also L4D2, but for this game you can find a hack to play it with full gore - even for Linux. Btw. Australian gamers get low violence L4D2 as well. TF2 is too boring for me and somehow more realistic games like Battle Field 3/4 are completely uncensored. Other games which contain forbidden symbols are censored as well, to work around that the Doom 3 BFG edition had those symbols replaced for Doom 1+2 which was playable from that game as well. The game was the same world wide after that change, a few changes were made to Resurrection of Evil as well, this was never sold in Germany before (also part of D3 BFG). Something that is kind of funny is that now you can buy MK 1-3 in a bundle via Steam completely uncut but MK 1 and 2 was forbidden - well even the magazines with a MK 2 tests got censored (with black pages). MK 2 was sold a few months for SNES before the PC release, but this was the time to forbid it. Well you are too young to know that

Or more detailed:
fuck off you stupid troll. You are an idiot if you think that porn has anything to do with woman hating. Those woman are adults and making their own decision, and their contribution to human society (not limited to males) is much greater than yours. Also there are man porn actors, too. Are they exploited, too? Yes? Why? No? Why are woman exploited then? Double standards ftw! Not to mention the entirety of the 'everything in between and around male and female' group.
porn > violence.
