    That sucks though, stupid governments! I hate how they can effectively ban certain games because they do not approve of their content. Censorship ftl!

    Wasn't it GTA 4 that American politicians of a certain persuasion wanted to ban once they found out the character could pick up a female of a certain profession, drive to a secluded spot and engage in some extra-curricular activities.

    Never mind the masses of violence, ability to randomly kill innocents, and glorification of gang culture, thats all fine per these politicians, but sex! Oh my god no!! That must be stopped at all costs less it corrupts the children!

    doesn't TF2-Germany have like party mode enabled and locked so you can't change it. Everytime a body gibs it shows only balloons and confetti? Or was that another game i'm thinking of, i remember hearing germany had a game like that, not sure which title it was though but TF2 rings a bell

    I would almost say showing balloons and confetti would be MORE harmful than blood and gore, cause if kids grow up shooting people and balloons come out, i'm gonna reckon a guess they will be pretty disappointed when they shoot 30 people at school and didn't find a single balloon to congratulate them

    You realise I'm on your side and support this petition? My example was meant to mock American politicians and American politics in general.

    I want to be a politician when I grow up so I can ban games like Barbie in Magicland because they are offensive and stuff.

    Don't get me started on that shit. There's a lot more contributing to violent kids than the games they happened to play before hand.

    Why don't they have an 18+ Rating? Is it that hard to make one? All they're doing is constraining themselves

    signed, though I live in New Zealand. I wonder if Valve will just turn a blind eye to a pirated version or something because surely nobody but the people who passed this ban think it's reasonable
