MICHUACANO GAMING (40 minutes ago)
I think that the bolivian goverment didnt see that ghost recon specifically says that this game is of fiction and does not portray bolivia or its people

I'm sorry Falcon but in none of these games "America" is the villain, that's one of the reasons why these are not banned or overlooked in America. I wish the publishers paid a lot of money to make games where they made America or Americans look like the villains, then we would have seen how people reacted.

i'm from bolivia the thing with wildlands is because the government feels that they have shown what bolivia will become, the whole government has let the cocaine business spread so much that is really easy to find some here, and with the permissions to the production of the base of the drug (hoja de coca in spanish) we are literally becoming a narcostate oh and also, nobody cared about the ban of the game, literally was one of the best sold on the pirate game stores AND ALMOST NOONE KNEW IT WAS BANNED

Mw2 online map Favella, apparently there was religious writing on a picture from in the bathroom of a certain building and that was against whatever religion that was being portrayed, to have religious pieces in the bathroom, so the game shut down for a day or two while they fixed it

I'm starting off by saying I necessarily agree with any of this. The difference I think in the Minecraft case is the game is intended to include young children in it's audience. The fact that it is unrealistic in it's portrayal could be seen as confusing in regards to the things being asked. If you do similar things in Battlefront or GTA for instance, the depictions are realistic. Some would argue the unrealistic portrayal in a game such as Minecraft could create a disassociation between the action in the game and the action in real life. I'm sure you've heard all the arguments before. But my point is aimed at explaining why that game would be singled out.

I like this video... but to be honest there's allways people offended in any country by anything... I would like it more this video if it would have mentioned one video game that was cancelled or censored by the US (in some sort of way) due to senstive issues... like Six Days in Fallujah , I understand the reasons why it was cancelled n etherway it was too soon, but well u get the idea... N there are games that has been censored 'cause they were 'racist" or they showed "stereotypical" issues like Jinx from pokemon or skullkidd from Zelda... I'm from México n it never bothered me GR Advanced Warfighter, but the gouvernement here had problems 'cause it showed a mess up México (dangerous n violent) n unable to protect it self (US supremacy, cause they need the US army) n it's comprehensible...more or less... just picture that México is in a civil war n instead of using the mexican army, here comes the kind, nice n always brave US army to the rescue (and I truly believe it's allways brave... that's no sarcasm)... Would it been so hard for the developers to use the mexican flag into the uniforms?... Well YES... there's actually a big reason why not to do that... cause it would had rise the angry of the american "metsicanos" n groups that support the integration ideals, claiming the game to be "racist n stereotypical" n u cannot have US lawyers on ur back... so f©₡k u México... I think every country is guilty of these things in manyways... n there's a little issue that bothers me (a little bit) on the way this video is protrayed... n I will translate as... "Come on man it's just a joke"... yeees... Cause the joke was not on you...

How did these games get banned but gunning down innocent civilians in modern warfare 2’s “no Russian” mission not make this list when that scene was all over the news of people shooting families at an airport. Don’t get me wrong, it’s my favorite COD but I get like it should’ve been on this list for all the media attention is got as to what happened lol

Yolo from iran , the fact is that there were tons of pirated games for 7th gen consoles in iran and we would buy them for 1/15 the price and brother it was a paradise , but people buy original disks for 8th gen nowadays since we want to access the games online And we played bf3 too , banning the game was really like a commercial, it made people buy this game to see what it really is

I randomly thought how cool it would be to have a game with Battlefield's scale, graphics, and gameplay but with all nations of the world, or continents, sort of like Medal of Honor Warfighter but bigger, and a campaign in which America isnt portrayed as the Hero, no country is, but rather just letting everyone fight for their country, that'd be fun, imagine a game where North America would fight against Europe vs, South America, vs Australia vs, Asia etc. Lol

I was wondering if Ghost Recon: Wildlands would be on the list. How can you not agree with Bolivian gov about it? Have you played the game? In the game it was CLEARLY shown throughout ENTIRE campaign that the country was ran by a narco cartel, heavily corrupted government who did nothing about it cause they were bought out or controlled by El Sueno in some way. Even the special forces(?) Unidad who were created to fight the corruption were on the same side as the cartel. Don't get me wrong, i love the game and i still play it, but i CAN understand how Bolivia is upset by the concept.

ClaimedMinotaur (4 days ago)
This is why I love Far Cry 5, it portrays some Americans as militaristic cultists that murder people left and right. It creates a good (well, moderately good) villain so the player can feel all altruistic just like tons of games before it. And the best part, LITERALLY NO ONE thinks that's how Americans are, because it's FICTIONAL. I understand a little bit when countries with checkered pasts get annoyed when they're portrayed badly, because they're trying to escape their current or previous reputation. But people, it's fiction. I.E. it's not real.

I usually like your videos, but ur lack of understanding of other countries´ culture,(and worst, the fact that you dont even try it) believes, idiosincracy... is really awful. Tipical, believe in tha tyou are the center of the world and all west society is the normal standard way of thinking, at lest try to read, inform, educate yourself about other countries culture, so you can put in someone else´s shoes. then perhaps you will understand why some of these are banned. I don´t condone banning, but I get their reasons, it is call tolerance. Shame.

#3 is very inaccurate as it was allowed to be sold but not publicly marketed or put on shelves. you could order it or ask for it in a store, provided you could prove you are an adult. sadly this is a common misconception people outside Germany have about "banning" games or other media in Germany. Very few things are actually banned from being sold / bought in Germany. They just get banned from being marketed and displayed publicly.

mph seti (5 days ago)
I dunno, when I'm actually offended by something or someone, I step the fuck away from it or them. Turn it off, don't buy it in the first place, etc. I don't go to war over it, or try to keep others from enjoying it. Now if said offense is actually and actively HURTING other people, that's a different story. I am against literal violence, bigotry, violent/dangerous criminal activity, and any actions that purposefully perpetuate said acts. Key word here is "acts"; not thoughts, or images. Getting all pissed over art and entertainment is just stupid. Don't like it? No one is forcing you to watch it.

They should make a game that shows the United States overthrowing a democratic government and show it through the perspective of rebel groups. They can take inspiration from the countless of Latin American dictatorships that arose during the 20th century due to US support.

Dragon Age Inquisition got banned because "obscenity laws" also include gay relations. Meanwhile, Mass Effect, Life is Strange, Saints Row 4 (potentially) and Last of Us Left Behind are all perfectly fine because it's lesbian relations potentially and India is filled with horny pieces of shit... Is it obvious how much I hate the people of my country and am fucking happy to leave the country in 3 months?

Most people are stupid and most aren’t, there are reasons for these countries for banning these video games. You really wanted to criticise them, at least put yourself in their shoes. Just wanted to emphasize empathy here, the world really needs it to become a better place. Not full of morons and jerk asses. I cringed a lot when seeing this type of videos, and yes I’m a citizen in one of these countries. But I don’t even mind. But you so call Americans have nothing to respect and make jokes on everything. Well, even your life is a pathetic joke. Lol, you even make fun of your God. This just showed you people got no respect to humanity. Don’t be a dick gameranx

i feel like falcon is being a bit insensitive about why some of those games are being banned/removed. E.g the fight of gods game. For someone who's not religious (or at least someone who knows nothing about certain religions in the game) i guess you could find the game to be fun because who wouldn't want to see an epic fight between powerful beings. But for those who are, I think they would've felt insulted. So i think to avoid any boycotting or something from religious citizens in Malaysia, the government decided to remove it. Next time try to be more sensitive :)
