Germany restricts sale of violent video game.
The world's leading computer games manufacturer is under fire from the German Government, over a game depicting a violent siege of Baghdad.
You mean like what's happening in Iraq at the moment? Are they blacklisting the real war too?
The German ministry, meanwhile, has taken offence at the fact that the game "portrays war as the only way to resolve conflicts," and that "it gives military force an aesthetic appeal."
Well, shit, we can't let the military be glorified in Germany, can we?
