    They're not allowed to have an opinion on this.

    I can never make my mind up about China. The economic powerhouse it is and all the opportunities this could bring to me, I am trying to learn Chinese with the thought of maybe one day moving there. But then Stuff like this just reminds you what a backwards third world country it really is in regards to how free (or not) the people are :s

    Obviously MMOs encourage crime and illegal activity. That link is patently clear. Get the MMOs!

    Yup, it is true.

    ------------
    The gov bans net cafes for the fear of engaging juvenile in crimes... but... it's truely useless. They may be prevented to get in some net bars. they can still surf the net at home. Porns and violence are everywhere. You cannot stop a young man from being a future criminal just by setting some barriers in their way. Their minds are not changed. Without a radically change on the edu environment, all the efforts would end in vain.

    lol, "black web bar" that's the most direct translation i've ever heard!

    the reason internet cafe's are really popular in China is because the parents are way too strict at home, no gaming consoles allowed. and most chinese people are not very rich, high end graphics cards are out of the question (eg, 2 years ago, i can't buy a 6800GT because it's high end, no one sells it! ) (i guess it's the same now, no one sells 8800GTX ) internet cafe are the only method youngsters can play computer games.

    being a Chinese born British, i think the government are doing fine, it's the parents who are way too strict.
    but then, the government is just as strict as Internet information, eg, the Chinese BBC is blocked in China.

    No, ... i mean u are not totally right.
    Parents in china are indeed more strict to their children than other countries, game consoles are generally disallowed. But buying a medium power machine is still popular... a 8600GTS would certainly play most up-to-date games at highest gfx without aa, af.
    Actually, net cafes in china often have much less powerful video cards (such as X1300). U can demand playing on a more powerful computer in the "Tournament Area". the trade-off is 3 times higher cost.
