China to ban violent online games
Quote:
A notice posted on the Culture Ministry website on Monday said games that promote drug use, obscenities, gambling, or crimes such as rape, vandalism and theft are "against public morality and the nation's fine cultural traditions."

Hey, you hear that sound? That one. That one right there.

Sounds an awful lot like Jack Thompson packing his bags to move to China...

Yeah, I too found it odd that killing and murder isn't in the list.

LLevi, that's because killing and murder are part of their nation's fine cultural traditions ;)
Spying games should be safe from their perspective too

No skeletons. So the undead race is now just 'zombies', and when you die a little tombstone pops up instead of a dead body. All icons that were skulls, etc are now just "bags" or something else random. More info here.

"Pot bad. Alcohol and Guns Ok. What a stick fiddled up place."
or
"Sex Bad. Catastrophic explosions OK. What a stick fiddled up place."

Right, they'd never go apeshit over an accidentally exposed nipple when kids are seeing tends of thousands of TV killings each year.

I don't know, maybe they would. Things are screwy all over the place.

Alcohol and guns? Did you mean alcohol and tobacco? Because guns are not a drug...
