It's not all Doom and gloom in Germany

Better late than never, eh? After 17 years, the powers that be in Germany have decided to lift a ban preventing the sale of the cult classic shooter Doom to teens. According to the BBC, the game was put on a list of banned games way back in 1994.

That decision has now been revised because Doom "is now only of artistic and scientific interest and will not appeal to youngsters", says the BBC report.


Germany just does some weird stuff. Contra had to be redone as robots too.
