    Man, I recall Sweden wanted to do the same (or did?), but they wanted to ban ALL computer games, because as they stated it - they can't tell the diffrence between gambling and computer games. I'm not 100% sure about this, though, it was some years back.

    As for this ban.....another example of irresponsibility. Or the inability to admit to one's failures, thus looking for someone to blame for them.

    Ah, feels like home.

    As I said, I am not 100% sure, I only overheard it about 3 years ago.

    I talked with a girl that wants to kill 80% of earth's population because they aren't Christian enough, so I agree with you :D .

    The reason for trying to ban CS was a map called Rio that is placed in a shantytown. They say the game teaches terrible things like guerrilla techniques to combat the police in Rio de Janeiro.

    Actually I haven't tried to shoot anyone today. Maybe I should click on the Steam icon and go for a walk later.

    They banned the trade of CS, though they didn't ban half-life itself :roll:

    Lan houses that have the game aren't forced to unninstall it.
