LMAO. The stupidity is amazing. Amazing how dumb people running countries are. Seriously, lets allow movies that are ten times worse, but games, which have ratings, are getting banned?
Reactionary insanity by yet another country. People bash Labour but thank god neither they or the Conservative/Liberal Democrats have ever suggested to do what Australia/Germany/Switzerland do.
Don't buy L4D2! Save the zombies! They're human-like creatures too!
They obviously saw Alan Tichmarsh too
WOW must sucks to be Swiss!
LMAO, ban the Sims because you can make your Sims fight.
hmm expect torrenting of AVP to increase there
What's wrong Switzerland lately? Slowly but steadily banishing everything that has a connection to freedom of expression.
What happened to the neutral, tolerant, banking paradise?
Now they're banning people from expressing their religion, banning certain genres of games, what's next?
I think the next step is going to be releasing all their banks' records for the whole world to see.
They are slowly but surely getting pressure from the rest of Europe to open its banks as well. Especially when you have the HMRC in this country paying Â£600,000 for a client list of UK residents with offshore accounts from an employee of one of their biggest banks. Last week the French authorities sent back to Switzerland a list of clients from all over Europe saying they were just interested in their French account holders. Rumours that they paid for it.
So with this much activity and controversy in Switzerland, you'd think they had better things to deal with than banning games. Hang On! aren't they banning the car there as well?
This goes in the line with Venezuela, right now you will not find any violent game on any store whatsoever, since the first days of this month there is a law that puts in prison for 3 to 5 years all the people that sell, buy, distributes and import "violent games", and the Venezuelan Goberment didnt stablished what games are violent or not, the only way to buy a videogame right now is going into the blackmarket, the only games on stores that you can pick are driving games and sports, heck even mario games are not found.
What is funny about this thing is that the govermment doesnt allow any father to buy toys that resemble war weapons, and violent videogames, but any father could buy a real weapon and give it to his son/daughter, because there is not a law in the country that penalizes this action, or the port of arms, oh the irony.
I hope this trend stops now, but it seems that many countrys are taking steps to follow this route, i think all the gamers in the world need to do something before this thing gets out of hands, to the point of destroying this media.
i should imagine switzerland accounts for very little games revenue anyway, but its a real shame for the people who are are in their mid twneties and can't play bad company and anything else for that matter with the rest of the world.
World gone mad.
Socialism, apparently, leads to tyranny.
And up goes the teenage pregnancy rate.
Noe that all teeangers won't have bfbc2, they all going
to socialize and have unprotected sex (sine they missed ou
on sex-ed, as they were busy playing).
Believe me it's better to have teenage gamers locked in their
rooms than roaming on the streets.
Do u also want to hear my theory on how banning violent games increase air pollution rates?
What happens with GTA then.
Kill people in GTA and the cops come after you. Although a fair few of the missions are to kill people.
Stupid and pointless law if you ask me. If you can't determine between game and real life, you shouldn't be able to go out and buy a game in the first place, you should be in a mental institute.
that will never work, or if it does, it will take 5-6 years before anything happens :S
