As a fairly new medium, video games were often met with skepticism due to their content. Allegations of violence, sexuality or racism are amongst the most popular reasons why some conservatory countries took the banhammer and totally squashed some video game titles. But there are some other cases, where the censorship happened due to totally absurd reasons. Regardless of the motivation that got them banned, the following list encompasses 10 of the most interesting situations where different countries decided to proscribe videogames.

How can you avoid interpreting the shit hole in a bad way? The country was left in debt after the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics just made everything worse then you have all the worker's rights issues and the fact the government doesn't give 1 fuck about their people and the country has a massive gang problem I'd say MW2 got it kinda correct.
the ban with fallout was due to "chems" sharing real world names of drugs. (specifically one I believe)
The one that topped the cake is what we now know as Med-X which was originally Morphine. Thankfully Bethesda is amazing enough to literally change these name(s) SPECIFICALLY for Australia
couldn't imagine a world without fallout to be honest, hope this helped.
Much love. From,
I hope you have ways to bypass this like a VPN or something. Australia still bans the most games incl. digitally with Steam.
But, you're very lucky if you don't live in Western Australia. In almost all of the countries you are allowed to possess the game for personal use as long as it's one copy and you are older than 21, but Western Australia kept the ban fully integrated. You get caught with these games, it's like smuggling cocaine, you get 10 years and 200 grands in fines.
What a bunch of moral pussies.
Well, GTA is one of the most non- child friendly games in the world, and that kid did confess to killing the driver so that he could see is it was as easy in real life as in GTA, so they had good reason.
Fun fact Fallout 3 was also banned in India
for Featuring a Mutated 2 Headed Cow Known as Brahmin. Why you ask BECAUSE COWS ARE CONSIDERED HOLY IN OUR COUNTRY AND BRAHMIN IS THE NAME OF AN UPPER CAST. THAT'S FUCKING WHY!
Don't even get me started on the Porn ban.
the reason you play video games is so you can escaped reality an have a good time but nowadays with all the libtard cucks in offices from countries around you cant even do that what a dumb fuckin world .
You also forgot the Mercenaries series. The first one was banned in both North and South Korea because the game takes place there and your trying to take down a North Korean Dictator. The second one was banned n Venezuela because it took place there and also featured taking out a dictator.
I'm Danish, and there is a reason for why advertising for energy drinks was made illegal here. When energy drinks started to become more mainstream, there were many underaged children who just bought and drinked energy drinks like regular soda, and there were multiple incidents of children dying by heart attack because of it. It's still legal to sell energy drinks, I can just go over to my local store right now and freely buy some if I want, but you can't advertise for them.
Does FragHero know what a country is? The city of Juarez was the only place in Mexico that banned the video game set in Juarez. Mexico, as a country, didn't ban the game. Thus, you have at best a list of 9 countries banning games.
